Hello everyone,

My friend's sister bought a CPO Evoque and it's been in the shop 3 times in the past yr for various problems, luckily covered under warranty. If you have an intense career like medicine or law where you absolutely can't afford to take off time to deal with these kinds of annoyances don't get a RR.But if you've got a flexible work/family schedule, as long as you've got a nice extended warranty, repairs aren't that bad. Modern vehicles from Euro brands aren't like the bad & unreliable cars of the 1980's and 90's which were plagued by all kinds of fluid leaks & electrical bugs.

Thank you!

I have had many problems with my 2013 Range Rover Evoque!!! New radiator....new high pressure fuel pump....new windshield because it started leaking very bad....intake valve solenoid replaced along with new valve cover cause of lots of slack in the timing belt causing it to hit and crack it!! And there is a crack in the turbo manifold!!! Plus a couple other small issues!! It only has 95k miles....I was the second owner so more than likely it was sold to me with most of the problems. A vehicle that expensive should be better made than that!! Just my opinion ?

My manifold was also cracked, I got mine fixed under a 7 year emissions warranty. Call rangerover and see if you are eligible for it! :)

I had a 14 Evoque for over 4 years. It was a great truck. The baby Range Rover was a family favorite of everyone in the family. I bought mine used with low miles less than 20k. I was the third owner. I traded it in at 60k miles.

Mine was the premium plus. I upgraded the factory halogen headlights to oem euro xenon and also had done a facelift grill and rear LED taillight conversion. Also did black out on all the silver plastic and lettering

The only issue I had was the transfer case at 48k miles covered under warranty.

Extremely reliable little truck that provided a fun driving experience and was awesome in the snow.

I highly recommend the Evoque for anyone in the market.

I think my transfer case it shot.. I have 60,000 on mine. It makes a grinding sound when I accelerate... hoping it’s something else.

I recall a grinding noise when the case was shot when accelerating. It took a while to go out and was still on and off when they replaced it. The 2x2 wheel message would come up often. One time it went out during a snow storm when I was rounding a curve, caused the car to spin out. Luckily it was all wet snow around, so the car just hit a patch of wet snow. No damage.

I remember looking up the part on ebay and it wasn't that expensive had it been out of warranty.
