Hello, new to the forum and looking to buy my first RR - a 2017 SVR at LR dealer, but it’s a reaquired vehicle. Was sold new in CA. Had a fuel fill issue that apparently took too long to fix so LR bought it back (according to the dealer). LR documentation just says “fuel system - other” as reason for buy-back. Will anyone want to buy this in a couple years, will dealers not want to take it back in trade? Would appreciate any advice. Thanks.

I'd stay away from manufacturer buy backs. This article has a good point: they claim the manufacturer buys it back then repairs the issue. But if they could do that why didn't they repair it before the costly buy back?

Because in California you can get the manufacturer to buy it back after a certain amount of days at the dealership, so people do it. CA has some crazy consumer protection laws. Even if they fix the issue can get a buyback once it hits 30 days at the dealership.

So it?s a 2017 with 11k miles and original MSRP of 130k. Buy price is 99k. Rover put an additional 12 months and 12k miles on top of standard warranty. Plus they?re taking my trade at 1k over the best number I got elsewhere. Good deal or no?

You can buy a clean one for that price. If they will give you 3 years bumper to bumper and unlimited miles warranty like Mercedes Benz would do to their certified preowned per their ad then I would consider it but also at a lower than $99k price.

Why would they not just CPO it?

Was about to ask the same thing. If they CPO it, becomes a lot more attractive.

With CPO I would say go for it, without CPO I would not buy it myself.
Isn’t the only difference between factory warranty and CPO the mileage? I thought CPO was 5yr/100k? I’m not a high mileage guy and tend to keep cars 3-4 years.

My suggestion - think about this car as a buyer in 2022 or so. Suppose you are buying a 2017 SVR that was a buyback and the year is 2022. The warranty is done. What would you do - buy it?

Good point. I suppose if the car is trouble free and I have full service records, the next owner should be able to feel confident. But, on the other hand, if it continues to have problems then selling it could be very difficult. As would any car with a sordid service history - buy back or not. But this car is starting off with two strikes...

I've decided to pass on this one and look at some others. I really appreciate everyone's input. Thank you.

Note sure what year/color your looking for but this one is for sale at a dealer in San Antonio. They are not a LR dealer but a sister dealer to Land Rover San Juan (same owner)

I appreciate that. Not a fan of the "Storm Trooper" look. Hunting for Estoril Blue or Firenze Red, carbon trim, ebony or ebony/cirrus upholstery, black wheels (prefer 22, but 21 ok).

Having owned mine for all of three weeks now, I can tell you that Estoril blue is a truly special color. You're right to wait for it. 4 years of owning my 2014 Dynamic I didn't get a second glance, 3 weeks of this car and I've had at least 3 compliments from total strangers. Wait for it. It's worth the wait for sure.

Very cool. Is there anything you miss about the Dynamic, or don’t like about the SVR?

Nothing I miss, but the SVR is a bit obnoxiously loud. It's fun for the first couple of days but it does start to get a little too noisy. Even with the exhaust in the quiet mode ...
I'm also a bit annoyed that the 2018 HSE has the body styling of the older SVR so it's now ever harder to tell them apart, which is another reason why you really want the Estoril blue.

One of the main reasons for chasing blue is that it’s an SVR only color. Red is pretty rare too, but Firenze is on other models too. My mom has a Firenze LR4! Lol
