- Thinking of buying a RANGE ROVER Evoque
1. It’s Land Rover, not landrover.
2. In this context it’s £40k from, not £40k off.
3. I’d probably use a semicolon to link the first and second sentences, but that’s just me.
1. Actually it’s a Tata.Posted 3 years ago
2. Prefer “happy to take £40K off you” as it carries the subtle implication you are being fleeced.
3. That is just you.
TATA build them better than the shite that was previously called Range Rover mind.Posted 3 years ago
Have you noticed how many AA trucks have Range Rovers on the back.
My old gaffer paid 75k for a Ranger Rover Vogue in 2002 new.
He hardly drove the bloody thing, braking down, suspension faults, electrical faults, every bloody fault.
The Indians at least seem to do it better. My OH’s Disco has been faultless and she does around 50,000 kilometers a year.
OH, Buy new,get a warranty, put it against your business if you have one, what’s not to lose?
Or you could get a panda 4×4 and spend the difference on prostitutes and cocaine.mindmap3Member
Very expensive ! If you’ve that sort of money to spend have a look at the new Porsche Macan, I suspect it will cost you less to own over three years and will be much better made.
Which is basically a posher version of a Q5, so surely no better than an Evoque being a tarted up Freelander….
I don’t think Porsche are that well made given the engine issues that have plagued them since the original Boxster and the 996 onwards (IMS bearings, bore scoring etc). I don’t doubt that it’ll sell well…pretty sure that the 4×4’s will be the mainstay of the Porsche range in terms of numbers sold.Posted 3 years ago
Apart from an 18 month wait
@engineer Is that right !! I saw my first one the other day, was ok not wow but you can’t expect much as its a 4×4 saloon.
@mindmap – yup when I first saw the Cayenne I wondered what Porsche where thinking but it’s been a hugely successful model for them, big money earner. I’ll put my hand up and say I’d take a Macan or more likely a 1+yr old face lifted Cayenne over any land / range rover all day long. Build quality and reliability are excellent. Anyway back in the real world it will probably be an old rav4 to put the bikes and other crap in.
@iolo same floorplan as Q7 / Toureg but so much more engineering in terms of drivetrain etc and of course body and interiorPosted 3 years agophiljuniorMember
Is it bad that this thread made me look up used Porsche Cayenne Turbos? Casual browsing turned up a Turbo (ten years old with “a few” miles on it) for £8995 asking price.
And it’d do everything (except being cheap to run), even proper off roading if you chuck the right tyres on.
Plus it’s a petrol so you’re not damaging the children’s lungs with nasty diesel emissions.Posted 3 years agodee2higMember
At risk of being lambasted….. I bought an Evoque (Pure, Tech, Coupe, SD4) two years ago and have been delighted with it. It’s comfortable (get the heated seats!), fuel efficient (yes, really!) and dead practical for bikes (I have a tow ball bike rack which is great). My only criticisms would be that the boot is a tad small, and the access to the back seat isn’t easy. If you like the looks, which I do, go for it.Posted 3 years ago
@engineer, lot less interior space than a Disco, more Q3 than Q5 in that regard I would say. I wouldn’t say no though !
@phil have a look at how much a set of tyres will cost you. A mate had one and got roughly 8000 miles out of a set….
Blimey. How did he drive it ??? Should be good for 20,000+ driven normallyPosted 3 years ago

I can’t imagine ever wanting to buy an Evoque. If I wanted a 4×4 I’d buy something like a Land Crusier because they don’t let you down, I’d never want a SUV because I’d buy something with space on the inside and the rest of the time I want something cheap and economical. I have no need or desire to try and pretend to people I don’t know that I’m living a lifestyle that they want to aspire to. It’s not envy, I’m just not interested in what other people’s aspirations are.Posted 3 years ago

Range rovers of any sort are driven by ****.
Really good at sweeping generalisations, then.Posted 3 years ago
A good friend of mine has a new RR Sport, replacing his previous model Sport. He’s someone I have a great deal of respect for, who travels to very dangerous parts of the world to help very disadvantaged people.
He’s many times the man you are.mikewsmithSubscriber

OK, so not that practical..

I was amazed when I saw then just how small they were and when you look at what the interior is like you can tell it’s designed to carry some nice shopping bags at most 😉
Think project has his eye on one of these instead……Posted 3 years ago
