In my opinion, for a full-size RR, <$8,000 in 8 years isn't too bad.

The main items for the 96 month (120,000 mile / 192,000 km) service is really just the oil change and pollen filter change. I'm assuming you're on top of your oil changes but if the last time you changed your cabin filter was 2 years ago, go have a look at the filter (pull it out yourself) and see how dirty it is.

Agrees the car has been very reasonable so far. Hopefully the extended warranty i just bought will cover the timing chain when that needs to be replaced.

Great Thread. Very helpful info. I’m looking at getting a 2012 SC and it’s nice to see some actual real world numbers. Thanks for posting. I’m finding several 2012 with about 50K miles
ill be sure to listen for timing chain slap.

here is what annual oil changes gets you:
Blackstone oil analysis summary
"This report holds plenty of good news for the 5.0L engine powering your Ranger Rover. Typicalwear for the engine type is on the far right, based on ~7,500 miles of oil use. Iron is elevated slightly, but
that's normal for the mileage on the oil. Other metals should be about average, mileage aside, and you've
got that too. Taken altogether, these are healthy wear numbers. The trace of fuel isn't a concern, even if it
thinned this 5W/30 a little. Often, a trace is from cold sampling. The TBN read 3.1 - plenty of active additive
left (1.0 is low). Try ~17k miles."

carshield - i tried getting the timing chain done and they said the engine was low on oil. so i canceled the warranty and found a LR tech to do the work on the side.

Plus 80K depreciation, that is the real cost of having RR 88K in 8 years(I'm talking about mine). = 11k per year = ~1k per month

Hello,

Regarding the oil analysis, was that Castrol Professional OE or another 5w30? And how many miles were on that sample?

Good to know. Thanks! I was curious about the TBN after that many miles. I'll be sending in a sample of the 0w20 in a few months...
