5 years servicing on a range rover evoque for £499 from Landrover.

Found 27th Aug 2014
Ok so I appreciate this won't appeal to too many people but having recently ordered one I was told about this by the LR dealer.

It's 5 years of servicing for £500. It is also transferable so if you sell in 2 or 3 years you could make the car a little bit more valuable.

It can be done at any approved service centre and although in theory it's for new orders, the chap I dealt with said if people are in their first year of new ownership he can sign them up.

Ordinarily I would not commit to 5 years worth of something but as my wife just paid over 200 sheets for an annual service on a golf I thought this was particularly good value.

amazing now just need to buy a range rover.

This is available for "free" (included by default in the deal) on new Evoques ordered at Stratstone Land Rover Newport (& presumably other Stratstone LR dealers).

Have I stumbled onto poshukdeals by accident? Good deal for servicing especially if you have to go official to maintain any guarantees.

Ha! Fair one. The car is costing me less than a top spec kia sportage and I guess the servicing programme is a nice to have! Fingers crossed it doesn't need anything done to it on said services...

Good deal .
I never use range Rover for anything thats gone on my Range Rover as they charge over £200 an hour labour plus VAT.
I had a BECM that needed resetting. Range Rover quoted £1000 to replace it. I got it done for £60 .
Just had rear air suspension replaced. range Rover quote £1400 . I got it done for £490.

Im in France right now and I had water poring out of the water pump. Unfortunately I wasnt given a choice by RAC whom took it to Range Rover. RAC called me as Range Rover couldnt diagnose the problem despite the fact that you put coolant in one end and it **** out the Water pump .

It has taken Range Rover a week to replace the Water Pump and has just cost me 1400 euros for what should have been a 2 hour job. I just hope when I collect it they have at least valeted the car

Sounds rubbish. I'll get the servicing stamp from them for the book and any work that does need doing I'll get done elsewhere. The local dealer charge £340 for the first annual service, seems extortionate to me which is why the 499 for 5 years seems like such a good deal!

Hopefully you get the valet, you might even get a little air freshner...

You`ll be lucky to get a from them never mind good service.

Following one yesterday and the opinion of myself and my passengers was why would someone buy such a Fugly vehicle just to get a Range Rover badge...........

Putting aside your subjective view on aesthetics just for the moment, I don't suppose anyone would pay several thousand pounds on a vehicle just for a badge.

You can get these from the parts department for just a few quid, for pretty much any marque.

Never mind the servicing - how about a warranty extension? Range Rovers are amongst the most unreliable cars on the road - beats me why anybody in their right mind would buy anything so incredibly unreliable!

It's a matter of opinion I guess. The inlaws have had a RR sport for 4 years and absolutely nothing has gone wrong with it. It's a chance I'm willing to take anyway and with their value staying so high in the second hand market I can always sell it within a year or two and lose less than I would pay for a polo over two years.

Now all I need is a Ferrari and a Land Rover Evogue, before that a house with a garage to put them in to stop the lil b*st*rds scratching it up

I was going to get a Range Rover but then I read this joke >

What's the difference between a hedgehog and a Range Rover?

The Range Rover has all the pr**ks on the inside

Anyway I voted this hot as no need to be jealous

My top spec Kia Sport age (first edition diesel 4wd) was 21k. I'm pretty sure i can't get an evoque 4wd for that price. I'm off to look though.

I was quoted 28k at kia for the all singing all dancing model. I should add that I'm getting an 11% military discount which takes it down to that figure. I don't find it all that 'fugly' myself but each to their own!

and therein lies the dilemma and source of frustration for many owners. Land Rover refuse to give their diagnostic software to independent garages to protect their outrageously extortionist practice. This means you are servicing independently at some risk. In fact, because of this your dashboard continues to display the message 'Needs Service' after an independent unrecognised service. I think this protectionist practice is outrageous and I'm surprised it is legal in the UK

You should complain to the UK had office. Might get a goodwill gesture payment especially if it genuinely was a failed water pump.

The fact you don't normally use a main dealer probably wouldn't help your case though.

What if i have 5 range rovers? can I get them all serviced once for £500?

... I wish i hadnt bought all these range rovers.

Not legal and not true. You speak through your lower orifice, sir! Your 'service light' comment suggests you're confusing them with BMW too.

voting hot cos it's my favourite car.

Ignore all the blatant jealousy. I have 10k faultless miles on mine and it's a fantastic car. That's the reason they've been such a great success around the world. This one followed several Freelander 2s (basically the same platform) over 7 years and had only one unsheduled dealer visit, which cost me nothing. The latest JLR products are a massive improvement over the earlier ones. Dealers are too expensive, though they're not all poor.

People on here knocking the product don't even seem to know the company name and are probably tooling around in some high mileage old model they can't really afford to run.

I got 3 years servicing for £350 on my year old BMW 330d. We had it on my daughters Mini as well. Saved a fortune on both cars. Highly recommended .

Would definitely increase value of 3 yr car with 2 years of servicing still valid Hot

Thats because unlike other makes these are actually taken off road. Plus they are complex with lots of extras so more chance they'll go wrong

I'm letting my range river go on Tuesday 2nd apetember, fantastic bargain and even more a fantastic car!!! Hope you enjoy yours as much as I have mine

Except that the Skoda Yeti is taken off-road just as often, cost a fraction of the price, has a hell of a lot more street cred, and beats the Range Rover hands down for reliability.
