I also need help on an Extended Warranty for my 2006 LR3. At almost 50,000 with very few problems so far - my local dealer is offering a 100 mile/72 mo extended warranty. The kicker is that the Contract/Application you sign and submit DOESN'T describe or even mention the Roadside Assistance (Towing, etc) that the Extended Warranty brochure says it does! The dealer says it's covered but since it's not in writing I have some concerns. For those of you who have purchased the Land Rover (not 3rd party) Assumered Protection - do the documents you receive and the actual warranty cards specifically say that Roadside Assistance is covered? Look forward to your response.

The ext warranty I bought includes, "trip interruption" food - lodging up to $100/day. "Towing" up to $50/day. "Car rental" up to $40/day for six days. It is transferable and renewable. I pay $3200 Cdn and it's only for a mere 20 000 miles extra. My reasoning is, it that thing breaks again, it will likely be for more than that, and I'm not ready to trade the truck yet. Note that the dealer already put over $15 000 under the original manufacture warranty. I bought the ext warranty at the LR dealer and it is called Easy Care.
100 miles ext warranty is substantial, may I asked how much you paid?

#4472 of 4548 Dealer? Looking for this LR3-
Jan 14, 2009 (8:15 am)
I know there's loads of 2008s on dealer floors. I'm specifically looking for this as my local dealers have stock at heavy discounts but not what I'm wanting.
NEW- not a demo or certified - can find those everywhere.
White SE or
Will consider an HSE if you're ready to sell like a discounted SE.
Don't need or care for anything else.
reply with contact info as I'm buying as soon as I can locate one.

I had an exclusionary warranty for my DII which I received way more for in repairs than I paid for - I think it was $4-5000 over what I paid. The company was MBP out of New Mexico, I had bought it through a LR dealer. However, due to all the know LR reliability issues with the DII's they no longer warranty ANY LR model.
So, first of all you want an exclusionary waranty if you can get one. It will best mimic the original warranty and will list what is not covered (which are only a few things).
The second thing you want to do is work with a company that is listed with the BBB. You can go to www.bbb.org
With those things said I purchased my extended warranty through a brokerage company called warranty 4 wheels. They will give you several different options (coverages) from several different companies. Their website is http://www.warranties4wheels.com
you can speak to Wayne, he is their CEO. I do not work for this company but you can check on them through the BBB site, I did.
BTW it is usually cheaper to get better coverage if your vehicle is in it's original warranty period. Hope this helps.

I just found a dealer in southern california that has a good stock of LR3 they need to move including a NEW 2007. Any opinions on buying a NEW 2007 at this point, Feb 2009.
#4475 of 4548 Any hope for a diesel?
Feb 27, 2009 (12:42 pm)
I ask this question periodically and the answer has so far been the same. But with LR under new ownership and both Mercedes and Porsche offering diesels in their SUV's (though the Cayenne is only offered in Europe at present), is this the time for a diesel engine in a Land Rover for the North American market?

What would take for me? An LR3 with the TD6 engine available in the UK would do nicely. Could it really be that hard to satisfy US and CARB emissions requirements when Mercedes and VW have done so and one of the Japanese mfrs (can't recall whether it's Honda or Nissan) is about to do so?
I think the "general consensus" is old news. We have had several successful introductions of clean diesels in the US in the last 2-3 years - look at the Mercedes E and M series Bluetec, assorted VW's, and Jeep Grand Cherokee (though it looks like Mercedes and Chrysler have cut that cord). They prove it can be done. With the price of gasoline on the way up again, the cost/performance advantage of diesel will become even more apparent.
By the way, several studies have been done comparing the total environmental cost of the Prius against gas-powered vehicles. Would it surprise you to learn that a Prius has a bigger environmental footprint than an LR3 when the cost of mining, processing, shipping (and later disposing of) the lithium needed for the Prius batteries is added to the account?
