Customer Question
I have an opportunity...

I have an opportunity to buy a Range Rover from the Land Rover dealership with 2.5 years of warranty. The dealership replaced the engine as the prior engine had continuous issues with coolant leaking. So it is a 1.5 year old car with new engine. Should I be concerned about the reliability due to all the connections that would need to be made in fitting a new engine? Should I just walk away?

Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the hoses? And have you tested the actual mix of your coolant?

Please read my question again

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Range Rover?

2015

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Range Rover yourself? What have you tried so far?

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Just to be honest the range rover in my opinion is one of the worst cars on the street, they are always breaking in some sort of fashion or manner, If your looking for a luxury vehicle that is reliable I would recommend lexus, the fact it has a new engine it at 2 years old is a huge red flag
