Would you buy another?

To those of you that have your cars already, would you buy another one?

We are considering putting another order in now and changing after a year, and hopefully taking advantage of high residuals this year. Should also mean we get a new MY2013 car which should have some of the niggles from the launch model ironed out.

I am hoping the the MY2013 models has an option for a more powerful engine or a better auto gearbox, but I am not holding out much hope on that one. Hopefully they will take on board some of the feedback for more cosmetic changes though (like more cubby holes). I think I would add the Lux pack next time plus heated steering wheel and spare wheel. Probably would go for another Dynamic but in OG or Havana.

Is anyone lease considering doing the same? What would you change on for current spec if you did? Be interested to hear what sort of PX values LR offer for this years cars . . .

RE: Would you buy another?

Knowing what I know now, I wouldn't have bought the one I have and been so disappointed by early build quality issues. I think it will be a much better car after the next or even next again refresh. I know the key is to
meet emission targets but they need a better gearbox and true RR fans will want a bigger engine.

Im pretty sure they will learn from their mistakes, after all they did with the Disco as it is now a pretty good effort, but they have gone too much for style over substance in the current model.

Sure it is a nicer car than say a Q5 or X3 but the build quality is not as good as my workhorse Honda CRv and for the price , they have to get that sorted.

I've got mine back now after the dealer has had it for a total of 14 days and they have added over 580 miles somehow and for a £44k car that's not acceptable.

I wouldn't buy another LR product at all based on this experience.

Cheers

Tetstb, I know what you mean.

I have quite a few issues going on at the moment with my car as well and nothing has been fixed after being at the dealers. It's shocking.

I do think that every first model will have issues I just hope they ca sort our cars out though. I definitely agree that a bigger engine is required but I still wouldn't change my evoque for any other car.

Well I certainly wouldn't chop it in for an X3, Q5, CRV or an M Class.

Now driving a 2018MY Mini Countryman Cooper S E All4 PHEV, alongside my 1996 Defender
TDi300. I hope to be back in a new Land Rover in late 2019 or early 2020 but am having a short break

It has already been said that there is no space for a bigger engine. Having said that, I am a bit worried concerning the quality of the automatic gearbox after reading some stories here, although I absolute loved the one in the car I tested. I just hope it doesn't let me down in rush hour Smile

580 miles added whilst with the dealer......that's one hell of a road test they've taken it on there!

RE: Would you buy another?

I haven't had any of the issues some of you describe thankfully. A few little niggles but nothing major.

We need to decide if we should change now or hang on for the competitors to catch up! I was always going to change after 2 year anyway.

Hi Mag1c_dragon

I've considered the same, love my Evoque and it's exactly what I expected and suits what I wanted it for. My dealer also suggested to take advantage of high residuals and get a later build maybe with some niggles sorted, I've been considering it too, but having only put 3000miles on and had the few niggles I've had sorted satisfactorily, not sure throwing a few £1000 at a trade in and replacement one would really gain me much (other then restarting the warranty) given I intend to keep it a very long time.

If I were to change I'd consider Firenze red or Mauritus blue, adaptive with auto dipping headlights. but that's about it. Maybe spare wheel, but I love that storage...

RE: Would you buy another?

I'd buy another like a shot and wouldnt hesitate to recommend. I have no niggles with mine and spend an hour plus a day in it.

Couldnt be happier, i was really worried about letting my previous 645 BMW go but dont miss it a bit, love my evoque.
