Time to unload the 2014 V8 S/C Dynamic. Made a deal on a 2018 Supercharged Dynamic with 34k miles that is CPO from a LR dealer. Based on what I read on LRUSA website, CPO warranty is 7-years/100k miles from in-service date. Great!

WELL... not so fast... apparently that’s not necessarily true:mad: The dealer is only tacking on 1-year to the original factory warranty which brings the total to 5-years and not 7-years, as is clearly advertised. I’ve been told that I can buy an additional year if I want it... but there is nowhere I can find online that seems to suggest that the CPO warranty could be 5/6/or (maybe?) 7-years at the dealers discretion. I was told that I could only buy 1 extra year so I couldn’t even get it up to 7-years if I wanted to.

Anyone have experience with the CPO program that could corroborate what I’m being told?! This seems very bait & switchy to me.

Thanks!

While a bit nontransparent... I'll tell you this. A 5 year 64K mile full warranty is more than 90% of Manufacturer's New Warranty's offer which is more than likely the lame 3year/36month warranty. For a vehicle that has been well maintained (Oil changes well before the 15K recommended service schedule and CarFax proof of oil/filter changes), the chance of something catastrophic happening within the first 2 years of that CPO warranty is greatly reduced after the already 34K first owner's miles. Personally, I'd just complain, hem and haw until they gave me a discount on that warranty if indeed that warranty was an all inclusive warranty. Meaning, everything is covered except wearables, such as tires, brakes, wipers, batteries, scratches and dents put on her from your personal use, lights, bulbs, etc... Everything else should be covered... Know this, if you decide to service this vehicle yourself as a lot of us do here... Do so, but let the Dealer service it once a year just to keep the warranty douches happy. This will run you $500 to $1,000 yearly and is worth it for piece of mind and so future warranty claims cannot be denied for failure to maintain the vehicle and it's records/carfax.

Hope this helps!

I’ve seen CPO warranties listed for 6 and 7 years so variability can exist. I haven’t seen it for 5 years though.

I think the CPO warranty says that it is "up to" 7 years. I have purchased 2 RRs under CPO, with each one I received 6 year total warranty. So with my 2019 RRS with only 16,500 miles I have until 2025 or 100,000 miles. I'm good with that!

I bought a v8 SC dynamic in 2014 approx 4 years ago from Land Rover Buckhead, and expected 7 years, and I ended up I believe with 6 years. I posted here the exact same thing, and got the "up to" lingo as well. At the time, I think it was at the start of their new CPO program which kicked off the "up to 7 years" language. (it was prior to that a flat 6 year thing I think, not sure, can't recall).

Anyway, I thought then -- and still think-- it's confusing and borderline deceptive advertising on JLR's part ... and at the time I escalated this and spoke to someone at LR US about it. Basically the dealer can decide how much extra (1,2 or 3) years they want to tack on, and price accordingly. I ended up fine with the 6 years and sold it for an M4 anyways before my warranty was up.

PS here is that post. Nice that they haven't changed the language. And also nice that he who argued with me on the post is no longer around here...

A couple of points to note about CPO warranties. First, they generally do not provide the same level of coverage as the standard manufacturer’s warranty. Deep in the fine print, there are lots of exclusions, so be prepared for that when it comes to claims. Second, the dealership inspects the car (barely) to get the manufacturer to provide the CPO warranty. Those claimed “multi-point inspections” are generally total BS, which makes the first point even more pernicious.

I highly recommend finding the CPO check list & go over the vehicle your buying with it. Some dealers are much better than others making sure everything is as it should be. No grey area when it comes to the check list. It either passes or it doesn't. BTW I do CPO inspections at the Mercedes dealer I work at.

I agree! I have a 2018 CPO RRS and I don’t know how much I really believe in these certification inspections as they missed that my side mirror switch completely failed to light up. All the back lit buttons in white didn’t work. Recently got it replaced under warranty. I bought the vehicle from LR dealer in Cali and I live in Texas so I couldn’t complete a full walk around/ check list with dealer. Thank god the vehicle for the most part was in the condition they claimed it to be. Where can I get a list of what’s covered under the CPO warranty?
