Buying Used Land Rover Vehicles
Land Rovers have become increasingly popular in the USA over the last decade, with nearly 95,000 being sold in 2019 alone.
A used Range Rover won’t break the bank, but it will steal your heart. However, what should you look for when buying a used Landy? Keep reading, and we’ll tell you!
Why Buy a Used Range Rover or Land Rover?
The Land Rover and the Range Rover have been among the world’s most well-recognized and best-loved offroad vehicles for decades. They were one of the first “SUVs,” as we now lovingly call them.
In these many decades, they have produced so many unique models that it is hard to choose the “right one” (they are all amazing!), and of course, you don’t need to be a Philadelphia farmer or a New Jersey adventure seeker to own one.
They handle as well in the city as they do in the country. They’re so good; the Queen of England has driven many over the years.
One of the most important reasons for choosing either a Range Rover or Land Rover is that they are unique and iconic. Unlike German, Japanese and Korean SUVs, they stand out in a crowd and even have their own cult following and close-knit community of drivers.
When you buy a Range or Landy, you’re not just buying a car; you are joining a family.
Which One Do I Choose?
The Rover company was founded in 1885 as a bicycle manufacturer but in 1947 built the first Land Rover, the first time the name appeared. In 1970, a few years after Leyland bought the company, they released the first Range Rover, a high-end luxury SUV, and the distinction between the two names was born.
Range Rover Models
The higher-end Range Rover comes in four models: the ubiquitous Range Rover (the flagship model), the Range Rover Sport, the Range Rover Evoque, and the Range Rover Velar.
Land Rover Models
The more rugged Land Rover range is spread over three models: the Land Rover Discovery, the Land Rover Discovery Sport, and the Land Rover Defender.
First, decide on the year and model. Obviously, newer is better, so depending on which generation you fancy, you should choose the latest possible model of that generation. A quick Google search will help you find the info you need.
Once you know the model and year, you can do further research. A good thing to do is to either Google or ask in a forum like Reddit if there were any common problems or recalls with the model you want.
With the above out of the way, if you are still keen on your original choice, you can find an available car to buy.
Ask for logbooks, service and maintenance records, and proof of any significant repairs, and don’t forget to seek out that new car smell. Sellers with this kind of information are more likely to have taken great care of their vehicles.
Lastly, buy a Land Rover or a Range Rover from a well-known, reputable dealership, just like Land Rover Cherry Hill, because they’re going to take all of that hassle out of the process for you, and honestly, you just have to rock up, choose your Range or Landy, and roll right off the lot!
