I have the chance to buy a 2008 RR sport from a family friend who works in the leasing dept for a bank. He takes cars coming off of leases to the auction, but could give us a really good deal if we are interested. I have always loved the RR Sport, but have always been a little weary bc of the reliability reviews.

What can I expect ($ wise) for buying this vehicle, and is this a really good deal?

Black- Good Condition Report
2008 LANDROVER RANGEROVER SPORT
30,644 MILES, 8CYL,, A/T, S/R, 4X4, HSE
$35,800.00


Any information that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Oil changes- how often, how much
Is the reliabilty really that bad? Do the pro's outweigh the cons?

I hope to get out and test drive one tomorrow.

Thanks

Donk.

Go for it, my experiences are the MY2007 & MY2008 model RRS's are the most reliable versions around ! Would you prefer to buy a Ford or an Indian Tata mate ?

Your new ride will require oil changes every 8000 miles from recollection and give us some details on the interior if it's the Tan hide I just love that colour combo.

I called him back today and he was out of the office, AT the auction. I think this car went to auction today... :eek: may have missed out. Won't find out until he is back tuesday.

I'm a little bummed.

In my opinion if this vehicle in a very good condition as you said that is way below kelly book price ,
I bought my HSE 08 1 month ago for 45000 ,I have entertainment package though .

Good deal, i found ones similar to my 08' Alaska white on Tan, still selling for around $45k. Only thing i have out of the ordinary is the rear entertainment pack $2.5k extra, everything else is the same as the rest for sale.

Sive.

Your MY08 Alaskan White example is worth bang on USD$41000 ! If it has 35,000 miles on the clock in HSE trim and rear DVD pack, would you want anything else ?

I've heard this a few times now, still trying to figure out what is different about these years... :?:

Had absolutely no problems with it. I would say it was more reliable than my previous Infiniti.

It's the summer...had a moment of weakness and I got tired of driving in my new extended commute into the city. Plus, I really wanted a Harley and I didn't feel justified to have both. I'd definitely recommend one.

It was every 6 months for me since I didn't drive it enough to hit the mile intervals. And, since I had purchased a 2008, all maintenance and service was free (up to 6 times which roughly equates out to close to 4 years).
