sorry to read this, but its
typical landrover reliability !
two brand new ones breaking down takes the biscuit though
given landrover is always right at bottom of consumer reliability surveys, its not suprising. but i am amazed people still buy them...
We are now at 13 or 14 Land Rovers from new, always had problems with them apart from Shona's mark II freelanders, great cars. My range rovers, not the kid-on sport versions, have been off and on, some were atrocious some were great. This Discovery Sport sagga has just taken the biscuit. The first was off the road for 8 months and they could not fix it, the replacement ran for 18 days before breaking down. Its like we just give them money to the value of a car and they supply different models for us to try out for months at a time. Nice way to get top of the range demonstrators though. The Jag was a surprise and the new range rover was like a pimpmobile, very comfortable but would not dare take it on the farm in case something got damaged.
So why do we keep buying them? Good question, The RR is just so good off road and I really use it to its full extent on the farm. Hose is down and it is great for an evening out. A few folks reading this will have been very great full for it getting them off the mountain in storms, so sure footed. The boot is huge, fill it with skis, sailing kit, mountain bikes, chain saws and treat it like a transit van, cant beat it. I love the driving position in the RR and the snow / mud handling is great, I am often miles from a paved road. The folding bi-tail gate is so good for getting changed on, wellies, ski boots, wet suits.
But the new range of vehicles land rover are producing? For the first time in over 25 years I was at different dealers, Mitsubishi, Toyota and even Volvo and Ford. There is a reason Solihull have just closed their factory for two weeks and if they keep saying its is due to Brexit they are delusional. They will be getting a very rude awakening.
Land rover + good tyres was a tremendous combination, was.....
