Totally agree on the extended warranty on a LR - I wouldn’t own one without

I sold the Mitsubishi after I bought a motorhome and a Fiat 500 to tow behind it which made the Mitsubishi unnecessary but then winter came and I decided to buy another PHEV but didn’t have enough space for another outlander so bought a countryman instead

Reliability on the outlander appears excellent so I wasn’t considering a warranty had I kept it but owners with older models can advise better on this now

Ahh well this fills me with hope then that I’m not going to be a regular at the local garage! Good to see you stuck around on this forum even though you don’t have one anymore 👍🏼👍🏼

Mind you I never buy extended warranties anyway because as an accountant I know that they are not cost effective. 8-)
Unless it’s on a Land Rover 😂. I’ve had mine 1 year and already claimed for a new Haldex unit and pump at a cost of about £5k. Theres a list of other repairs which need doing too so if I was to keep it that bill would probably be closer to £6k!!
They certainly know how to charge :roll:

Around 2005 I hit a pheasant and broke headlamp on a Discovery 2.5 - cost me £15 to buy part and replace from LR dealer - couple of years ago a friend did same with a Discovery 5 and cost him over £1000 :shock:

That’s just the cost of inflation according to JLR 🤣

I can remember my father, who was a Ford executive, telling me that they sold the cars at no more than cost price and made their profits on the parts. However, this is not cost effective if you have to ship them half-way round the world.

I suspect it is still true and that reliability is always better in overseas markets because of this. :idea:
