Range Rover Evoque AK64 LPV

Hi all

I am about to trade this vehicle in for a new Evoque. The vehicle has had countless electrical faults over the past 18 months and many still unresolved

We had rejected the vehicle, but if we had gone through with the rejection to the end we would have been worse off than we are trading it in for a new car. Mainly because the dealer didn't want us to reject I guess.

Reason for the post is to hopeful stop someone buying this car, long shot I know but you never know. I for one always google the reg of a vehicle prior to doing a deal.

Anyone considering this car please feel free to PM me

The reason is that the dealer will make money selling you a new car and it would cost him to rectify all the faults on the old one............. Next owner will be unaware of those faults and if sensible will take out the extra warranty so the dealer will then earn money from LR for doing warranty work................. If he took it in as a rejected car he makes zilch and has then to pay to put it right himself or pay to take it to LR to fix! Getting you to buy a new car means it is win win for the dealer - commission for selling you the new car and minimum £2000, possibly more, profit selling your old one on to an unsuspecting used car buyer.

Now driving a 2015MY RRSport L494 in Corris Grey with Ebony/Lunar interior and Ebony Headliner - pimped up with 22" wheel and polished stainless steel skid plates from and rear.
Gone to a new homes - Zanzibar 5 Door Dynamic with contrast, lux, plus and intelligence packs
Fuji White SD4 Auto Coupe Lux + Ebony Plus Pack and a couple of other extras
Still on my drive - 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT that has been made into a SW.

Fully understand the dealers situation, but I am interested in what was best for me. The discounts and"deal" that was offered was far better than if I had gone to a dealer with cash as a deposit, the 3 I spoke with couldn't come close.

Of course they will be making money they're a business. As for warranty, all there used cars come with 2 year warranties, and as a large franchise the trade in isn't gauranteed income for the local dealer anyway as it may be sold elsewhere within there franchise.

the point of the post was to get the registration on line as a potential problem car and hope people take note and maybe Google the reg as I do..
