    The approved used warranty for JLR dropped from 24 months to 12 months last August... I wonder why!

    The old ones are the beet. My Range Rover is 15 years old and other than adding a second battery as I rarely use it and couldn’t charge it where it was parked it’s been pretty good.

    We have brand new VW’s at work that are coming to us from our PDI centre with faults in already. Some we can clear others we are waiting for updates.

    All too complicated and probably made too cheap to last properly.

    Cheers

    In the same vein - my previous 2002 VW Golf GTi purchased new and imported via Denmark, which saved £4k, did 120k miles trouble free, over 13 years ownership, until I passed it on to my son-in law. It has now passed the 200k mile mark. It was manufactured in the VW factory in Wolfsburg, Germany, which no doubt benefitted the reliability.

    I mentioned to the workshop foreman at my local VW dealership, that I was thinking of trading it in for a newer Golf. He shook his head and said, "If I were you, I would hang on to the one you've got". He said reliability on the
    latest models was terrible, and they'd had lots in the workshop with faults. Good advice - he did me a favour.

    So newer, isn't always better.
