Land Rover LR3 Prices Paid and Buying Experiences

  • Hi

    I purchased an LR3 2 weeks back. Love this vehicle, but have an issue with a terrible detail? The vehicle was detailed at the dealer before pick up. I posted earlier about this, and the dealership attempted to correct the situation but it seems worse? In the sunlight The swirls are still present and there seems to be some finer scratching now from the second attempt? The vehicle has dark paint and really looks bad> Am I overreating? What can be done to correct this?

    I live in Southern California and during the first week of January purchased a new 2007 model from dealer stock. The vehicle had all the options I wanted, but some not needed as follows :

    HSE Package
    Luxury Package
    Heavy Duty Package
    Satellite Radio

    MSRP $56,825
    Paid $53,249

    This was the only LR3 around in the color I liked, so was surprised that they moved on the price. Was an outright purchase and Capital One 'blank check' feature helped I think as was similar to paying cash. Interest rate 6.25% pa.

    Love the vehicle, very comfortable and from a recent trip to the snow, was happy to have the locking differential. Was amazed at what this vehicle plows through ! First 1000miles were fun and look forward to years of enjoyment.

    1thunder,

    this is of course endemic to dark paint. I have had black cars in the past and there was always some swirling effect present. A couple of treatments that help is to have the vehicle professionally 'clayed' - that is they apply a clay mixture like wax, but the process will fill in the small scratches.

    After this is done, the dealer might agree to put a layer of armour coat on your LR3 to compensate. This will help to prevent the swirls from returning after washes.
  • Looks like a great deal. May I ask what is the money factor? was the 3k down required?
  • Dfarnsworth, sounds good, just where I'd like to be on the monthly payment.

    I'm in New Jersey, where is your dealer ?

    How and when did you apply the $1500 certificate ?

    Thanks in advance.
  • My husband and I just leased a new LR3 V8 fully loaded SE. We were able to lease it for 545/mo including taxes. It's a 30 month lease w/ 10500 miles a year. It's our first leasing experience and we think that we did good but aren't sure. MSRP was 54100 on the car and I think our final negotiated price was 46k or so. Our money factor is equivalent to 2 percent interest. What do you guys think?
  • I think your negotiated price sounds good, I've seen different money factors so that part may be so so, but if you're happy then be happy.

    Where is your dealer? I thought I'd found one but it was sold so I think I'm still looking.

    Is this the one you just leased last month? What happened, don't you like it anymore?
  • Hello All
    Yes! is the one I got last month. Nothing wrong with it and I have literate fallen in love with it. Is just that I was approve for the house that we want it and I still have to keep my existing house. Therefore two mortgages to maintain for a good while until there is a turn in the market and that is the reason.
    I'm buying a larger home to have space for my parents since they will be moving with us.
    It definetly hurts since I found out that this is a great SUV.
    Thanks
  • Are you still trying to get out of it? Any incentives? Are you looking to recoup any costs or a simple transfer?
  • My local West Palm Beach dear is offering $10k off the msrp for V6 SE. This brings it to roughly $32k. Should I jump on this?

    Not sure if I can get the additional $1500 internet deal on top of it...?

    Today I Leased a 2006 V8 SE 7 seat black/black fairly loaded with exception of no nav and dvd. Has cold weather package, trailer hitch, xenon, rain sensor wipers, etc

    24 month lease @ 420 per month...i paid taxes up front, otherwise no money down. car was a service loaner with 3100 miles. msrp was 51,000. i think i got a fairly nice lease deal. i drove and researched every other suv in class and nothing was close to this price. Fields Land Rover in Winnetka, IL

    I have been shopping LR3 vs. Nissan Pathfinder and like the deal you got. I am shopping at Fields LR here in Wisconsin.
    Do you have any concerns about LR3's JD Power or Consumer reports ratings? I like the ride, but coming off a bulletproof
    4Runner, it would be difficult to have a truck that I have in the shop every month.
    What time of the month did you do your lease ?
    I also like the 2yr lease, seems to be a LR exclusive.
    GREAT PAYMENT FOR THE CAR !

    I dont have the concerns about reliability. I have owned a LR before and am aware that they need TLC. Also, as long as the car is in warranty, the things that have gone wrong are ticky-tacky. IMHO the LR3 is 10x the car of the pathfinder or 4runner. enjoy whatever you get

    Thanks for the info. I read a post that required a brake job @ 25k miles (in the warranty period but not covered) that the owner had to pay for. That's quite steep for a two year old car.I would think LR would like to make good and help the guy out, however they told him he was fortunate they did not go out at 12k !
    JD Power and Consumer reports data is usually correct as they rate Lr and it's dealers very poor.

    However, I do agree with your assessment of the LR 3 construction. It seems put together well with nice interior features, all that I want.

    LR also has a 2 yr lease deal and will waive the sec deposit if you do the deal thru LR Capital Group.They make it easy to get into.

    They are owned by ford, one manufacturer that I will not consider.

    Any new car is a chance, maybe I will be lucky and get one made on a good manufacturing day.

    Still deciding

    Thanks

    I am tyring to determine if the following is a good lease deal for a 2007 LR3 V8 SE with cold climate package and bi-xenon headlights and rear park-assist. 30 month lease with 10.5K miles per year. Lease would be $625 per month with a drive off payment of $2,200.

    The lease on my 2004 LR3 SE is expiring soon, and I need to decide whehter to purchase my current car ($35,780 with a refundable security deposit of $750).
  • I think that the price is a little steep and I think with some haggling that you could get a much better deal. My husband and I leased the exact same thing that you're looking at (30 months/10.5k a year)except it was a 2006. We pay 545/month with taxes and only the first months payment down. We did do it a couple of months ago with some incentive offers but the offer is still good until the end of April. Check LandRover's webstie. If you can deal with getting the 06 instead of the 07 you're saving quite a bit of money and not having to put so much down. Also get two dealerships competing that's how we did it. Hope this helps!
  • 50k - did you end up buying from Fields in Madison? I am dealing with them right now but they are being a bit evasive over the phone. I was just wondering who you dealt with there. Apparently Bob the sales manager is going to call me later today with some numbers. I hope to get a similar deal to the person who leased from Fields in Winnetka, IL.

    southpaw75- I was at fields LR in Brookfield,WI. i dealt with Peter. He used the team method, as I meet all of the sales staff. They knew their product well.
    I decided against LR Products as there are better choices for reliability vs.LR. Too much negative research to take a chance. Good Luck ! :lemon:
  • 2006 LR3 V8 SE 7 pass. with Lighting package, Climate, Satellite Radio. No Nav. 5800 miles service loaner
    24 month/12k per year @ $460 including tax. Only first payment due at signing. Money factor is .00045
    What do you think?

  • kyfdx - It looked good to me too. I just wanted some confirmation that it was a good deal.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 28,675
    If that is the vehicle you want, and the lease parameters fit your driving needs, and 12 MPG doesn't bother you ;) , then I would say you couldn't do better..

    Since it is a 2-year lease, then the demo aspects shouldn't matter, as it will be under warranty the entire time..

    $460/mo. for a $50K vehicle, tax included with around $1000 due at signing? On a 2-year lease? Your mother would be proud of you... :)

    Offer: $41,995

    Second:
    Luxury Package

    Yup the last couple hundred 2006 MY LR3 Demos have outstanding lease deals.

    Keep in mind that the 460 dollars a month payment include property tax if your state has property tax.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 28,675
    Really? That would save me $700-$800 per year on a $50K car..

    Wow..

    Hmmm.... ;)
