good time to buy a MY16/17

in the market for a new 4x4, don't have the liquidity for a new one so will be looking at a couple years old

do you think the px of the pre MY18 RRS will drop off with a steeper curve once the MY18s start flooding the streets?

coming from a MY10 autobio tdv8...nicked via keyless theft... am worried about the RRS2 build quality/crankshaft issue

other options are Sq5/Cayenne/Macan but a 7 seat RRS2 in carpatian is top of the list so far...
Is it worth the extra paying more for the 16.5 updates?

Cheers

MY16.5 changed/added nothing onto the MY16, just some refined options to what was standard. The big change was MY17 which gave the new ICTP system. So if you want to save more money get a MY16 (Sep 2015 onwards) car.

And a warranty which will specifically cover any kind of engine failure. Delve deeply into the T&Cs. MY2016 HSE D SDV6

I have just bought a MY16 Autobiography and was a bit concerned afterwards after reading on here about used approved warranty not covering crankshaft failures . I bought the RRs from Farnel in Leeds (not local ) but when in my local Hatfields getting mudflaps fitted I enquired as to whether my warranty would cover this . They said of course , firstly I have 19mths of manufacturer warranty remaining which would cover it no question , then for the final 5mths it would be the approved used warranty that is done out of house, in which he said that it would not cover the crankshaft as it's a known fault due to a LR bulletin having been issued (that's the test apparently ) . However all that then happens is they pass the claim onto LR who will stand 100% of the cost out of goodwill . So nothing to fear while under either approved warranty or manufacturer warranty .
The problem comes he said when the vehicle is sold on to a third party with remaining warranty , if the crank fails outside of manufacture warranty but within approved used, LR will not look to goodwill as they did not sell the vehicle to said person .
So providing you buy the car from LR dealer you will be fine for the two years , what I didn't ask but will in time is what happens after the two years is up if you purchase an additional years warranty , will LR offer any goodwill then ?

Ratty I would say not at 2+ years old, from experience JLR don’t want people changing at year 1 as they want all the used cars to be there’s or ex demos etc at that age, if you check the valuations thread you will see what I mean, but at nearly 3 -4 years old they don’t loose much more that after year 1, if I was you I’d go for a 9-12 month old one with full warranty for at least 2 years, they are out there for around £60k from JLR dealers, depending on your exact spec requirements, to sum up my pcp gfv at 3 years old on my new 2017 ab is £49k & £43k if I kept it until 4 years old, they don’t want hand backs so get yourself a nice year old one keep it for 2 years & prob only loose around £12-13k or keep it 3 years for £17-18k, as long as you don’t trade it into stra*****e!

You can get a pretty good deal (five figure discount) on a brand new MY17 if your dealer has any in stock. Or see what Rockar has available.

I got one last week and I'm very happy with it. RRS MY17 SDV6 AB

I agree, good deals on MY17 RRS if in stock. Mine was the other side of the country and transcontinental shipping is expensive here but I still got a great deal. 2017 V8 SC

Interesting,,,,when I spoke to LRCS about the vehicle I sold the guy on the Fone Callum was his name,,said their isn’t a problem selling car with remaining warranty as the warranty belongs to the car not the person who purchased it.BUT when the crank snapped after new owner had only had it 2 weeks LR don’t want to know.

The revised nav and speed display is nice but not sure it’s worth the £10k (screen price) it demands.

This is nice for £64k before negotiations -

I’m bemused as to white the white ones demand a £10k premium over all other colours!
