    Default Looking to buy 2009 Range Rover Sport 3.6 v8 diesel

    Good Day All.

    I am looking to buy a 2009 RRS V8 Diesel
    96000 kms on the clock.
    What worries me a bit is for a 10 year old car it seems they have only done 960 kms per year avg if you work it out like that.
    Following up on services done by LR agents, the last was done at 62000 kms, in 2012.
    So then only 32000 kms was done in 7 years (84 months). So that is only 380kms per month.
    Does that sound fishy to anyone?
    Is there a way to pick up if the kms reading was tampered with?
    Car still looks good though.
    And any advice from owners please as to what to look out for before buying and what is general problems on these cars?
    Any advise would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

    JT, Nice car!!

    Last service was at 62kkm, in 2012. So the car has done the "accepted average"of around 20kkm per year from 2009 - 2012.

    What would bother me, if I were you, is what happened in the next 7 years (2012 - today)........if there was just one more service done, say in 2015 at say 70000 or so, that would have sounded about right.

    Not saying the mileage is tampered with, and dont want to put you off here, PLEASE .8)

    But ja, if you ask me, I would have definitely dug deeper to just confirm the mileage.

    The car, as it stands now and with the history it has now, is supposed to have done (20kkm x 9 years) = around 180 000 km.

    The odo shows half that - 96000km.

    So.........ja, its is VERY possible that the car has started doing only 4000 km per year since 2012.

    But also, you have to confirm that, otherwise you dont really know what exactly you're buying.

    Just my 2cw8)8)

    For a weekend car it is quite possible to do only 4K KM per year

    How many owners?On LR system you can only see services done by LR.Services done by Indie should be in service book. If not walk away!

    I have done around 8k km in my TJ Jeep, in around 3 years more or less.

    So for a toy/ weekend car it is possible.
