    Re: Should I buy this 2006 Range Rover Sport?

    Great thanks for the info. I am leaning more on getting the 2006 TD v6 sport. I hope the engine doesn't blow up like so many comments on this forum! :P

    Were their any parts of this thread deleted?

    Mafia - why did you decide on the TDV6? I saw no real support for this option at all in the thread so getting to your last post and I was surprised based on the comments past your original post.

    Re: Should I buy this 2006 Range Rover Sport?

    Hi, no there weren't any posts deleted in this thread. I have read good reviews on other sites about the td V6, it can't be that bad and fuel economy wise it's pretty good. I only do about 6,000 km a year which is pretty low, so I am hoping because of my low km and no off-roading, I won't have many serious problems. If anyone has any advice, experience with the td v6 sport, or a different opinion, please feel free to post as this is my first Land Rover so I am not that experienced with these cars.

    Ask on rrsport.co.uk, lots more tdv6 users there.
    However mechanically the car is same otherwise, so you can learn a lot in here.

    If you are not going to drive much at all, then fuel economy should not be a factor. This would be another reason to go with the SC over the TDV6.

    Why do you think the SC is better? I know some people are considered with the fact that it doesn't have much power, but to be honest I am a slow driver anyways. Does it have to do with the reliability and better engine build?

    Hi,
    #1, SC is just more fun.
    #2, most powerful engine out of entire lineup and SC does not affect reliability so why not?
    #3 SC will come with many options as standard.
    #4 winening about saving 1-2 mpg with most unreliable engine sounds awefull and illogical.

    Re: Should I buy this 2006 Range Rover Sport?

    What's your motivation for buying a Range Rover Sport?

    You'l need to be prepared for repairs...consider at least 10% of your purchase price per year as an estimate...some years more, some years less. You'd better find out what major repairs have been done...if you need to replace the airbags/shocks, the air compressor, any upper or lower suspension links, swaybar bushings, tires, brakes etc...you could pump in 50% of the purchase price just on parts alone. Proceed with that knowledge and investigate both cars well for their service history.

    Driving so little is actually a bit of a concern...if it's a lot of short distance trips and short duration...you'd be better off with a VW TDI not a RRS TD...

    Quite frankly, it's the regular repair and maintenance costs, not the delta on S/C vs TD mileage economy that's going to consume your money. Your decision to invest in this depends a lot on how long you plan to keep the car.

    P.D. Not sure where you see messages about the engines "blowing up"...very rare occurrence.

    I am not sure how web advertising works in Croatia: but it looks like the diesel is sold. The ad is now inactive.

    Unless you bought it, an old expression comes to mind: "you snooze, you lose!"

    Re: Should I buy this 2006 Range Rover Sport?

    Thanks everyone for the lovely responses. The car was not sold, the advertisement just expired and needs to be renewed. Still haven't made up my mind on which car to buy. I think I'm going to wait it out a bit and maybe a better one comes along the way. I would prefer to buy from a dealer instead of private. Cheers!

    One more thing I wanted to add, to be honest the Mercedes G wagon has always had a place in my heart. I think it will be well worth the wait in finding the perfect one.

    That should be a lot cheaper to maintain!

    The G-Wagon was my top pic for yrs, then the ROVER was 2nd,,,,,,,,,,,, until I road/drove a G-Wagon & a Rover! No comparison in ride, & the interior is MUCH better. My sister in law has a 2015 Wagon, & the interior looks even now, extremely similar to my 09' Rover...

    (I too LOVE what PJPR said! Hahaha)
