#659 of 668 RRS 2012 maintenence warranty
Jul 09, 2012 (8:17 am)
When i first purchased my RRS 06 it had a 4 year or 50k maintenence warranty. Now its a 1 year or 12k. How can a high end SUV offer such little protection ??

Our specs say the warranty is still:
Basic: 4 yr./ 50000 mi.
Drivetrain: 4 yr./ 50000 mi.
Roadside: 4 yr./ 50000 mi.
Do you mean you got "free" maintenance on your '06 for the first four years? I thought Land Rover only did that for 15,000 miles, one year.

Yes, i had Free maintenance on my '06 for 4 years. BMW and Benz still offer it. RRS is only offering a year or 15k.

Must have been part of the fall-out from when Ford sold Land Rover to Tata in 2008. Seems like reliability has been getting better since then too.
Sales of the brand are doing well, especially with growth in China. Guess they figure they can afford to lose a few customers over it.

Im not sure if its wishful thinking on their part. After I sold my '06 in 2011 and it only had 17k miles with service records, the buyer called me a few months later that he took it in for service and they raped him for $4200 on a noise he thought he heard and it really wasn't that serious.

It's extra cost at Mercedes now... Very few include maintenance, besides BMW, and most that do (VW and Volvo, for example) don't do it to the level of BMW..

Its extra for a purchase at Benz. Free maintenance is included in leases at Benz and BMW. Land Rover only gives you a year. That was shocking to me.

Anyone know when we can expect to see some at the dealerships available for purchase?
