Hello to all, I'm Jania, a newbie to the forum from SC. I'm so glad to become a member of this forum. I just plan to purchase a new Rover as soon as possible and think to know what the other owner is thinking about it and how they enjoy their ride.

Hey Dave, thank you very much for your response. I don't have any idea about the year and model, just something better and luxurious and stylist.
The years 2006-2009 of the Range Rover Sport with the 4.4 V8 are good and reliable. (don't get the supercharge) Always check the service history.
The years 2007-2009 Range Rover full size 4.4 V8 are also reliable, but some will need certain things repaired that are not cheap. (don't get the supercharge) Always check the service history.

1996-2005 Range Rovers (the BMW years) I would not touch. Lots of issues.
2010-2013 V8 5.0 Range Rover sport and regular size suffer from engine chain tensioner issues.

2014- V6's seem to be good.

Good Luck,
Dave
