Hello, I'm trying to make a decision on whether to buy a new 2020 Land Rover Sport vehicle, lease it or buy a CPO one with 2.5 years left on the warranty. THe CPO car had multiple visits to the services to change the brakes twice, replace the powertrain/computer and Coolnet Reservoir. Is it normal for 3 years old car to have all these issues during the first year or two after it was out of the dealership? Thanks.

    Sounds like the typical ownership experience, at best.

    Leasing a Range Rover is not really a good deal, but it is a car that I wouldn't want to own, either.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

    I see too many land rover cars in my neighborhood and most of the folks I spoke to basically love it. Many said that it's not a reliable car and it can be in and out of the services multiple times.

    That seems typical. Love the car, hate the dealer experience.

    if you drive a lot, I would say buy the CPO. Then dump it after warranty expires.
