I am new to Range Rover Sport, I loved them from day one, just didn't have the money to buy it yet. Now i have put aside some money to go for one and i found something i really liked. Can i ask a few questions regarding the car?
First of all its not a Dynamic. - So my understanding is its missing the alloy 21 upgrade(which the previous owner already upgraeded) and few other bits which will make the ride better, but i test-drive it and i didnt wanted anything more than that
Missing adaptive Cruise Control - doesnt bother me as long as i have cruise control
Merdian Sound - This is a worry. The car doesnt come with this, but any of you have an idea of what the standard make is ? is it good quality, i can say i am a audiophile.
Also i have heard Range Rovers arent reliable, but i like the car so much that i can live with it, although i dont want to be in the garage all the time. i got range rover warranty till December and planning to get a RAC 12 months more. Any suggestions again? is that worth it for £700(platinum)
Thanks for all the help!!!
I have a 2016 model HSE SDV6. I love it, but do have some criticisms. The standard stereo is definitely not awesome. The multimedia hands free telephone interface is garbage - but I can use Siri anyway so its not really a problem. I hate that you have to buy an over-priced SD card to update the GPS and the turbo-lag from a standstill can be annoying sometimes. However, these are all very small niggles - I used to have a L-R series 1, a series 2a and still have a Defender TD5 so believe me... they are minor 21st century problems. The car has a lot of things to love - the 4WD system, with the right tyres, allows me to drive almost at dry road speed (if I had to) in the deep snow, the car has only had one minor electronic fault in 55,000 miles, and despite its fancy exterior, it's tough - a brand new jeep of some description sideswiped me...I needed to paint my bumper.. he needed to replace a fender two doors and repair a B post. All in all, you will be able to find fault with it. The warranty thing really depends on how many miles you've done or how it was driven. For $700 I'd probably recommend getting the extra year... that said, I didn't do it myself... but maybe I' m living on borrowed time
