Range Rovers consistently rank in the top ten of most expensive cars to maintain, according to Luxury Auto. Typically, the sport version will come with more maintenance costs than the classic version. Range Rover owners can expect to pay around $5,000 per year in maintenance costs. Yearly repairs can cost around $4,500 per year, as well. Owners of the classic version will generally pay $1,000 less in maintenance and repair costs.
Estimating Range Rover Maintenance Costs
There are so many factors that go into pinpointing exactly what you’ll pay in yearly maintenance and repair costs. Break it down by year of the model, how often you drive the vehicle and how well it is maintained. Range Rovers will undoubtedly cost more than any other luxury vehicle when it comes to maintenance needs.
Factors Impacting Maintenance Costs
Range Rovers do not rank highly for dependability and reliability, unfortunately. They will breakdown, just like other vehicles and money will need to be spent on maintenance and repairs. Range Rover drivers will often experience leaks and a variety of other mechanical issues. Make sure a car care professional checks the vehicle thoroughly before purchase.
Air suspension is the cause of many problems with most used cars, so this needs to be inspected before driving the Range Rover off the lot. The air suspension is what gives the car such a smooth ride with adjustable ground clearance. Yet, this tends to fail after 5-6 years of use. Buying a Range Rover with a converted suspension system can help avoid these problems.
There are a few issues with each generation of Range Rover. The classic model tends to have oil leaks, in addition to electrical problems. The most reliable vehicles were made from 2013-2017.
