Question

Hi. So i'm here hoping I can get any information on the Range Rover Vogue. This Vehicle is rare in Sri Lanka, but I have seen a few advertisements on this website. So starting with Price, Running costs, Maintenance, Repairs etc.

Would appreciate if you can share your valuable knowledge and experiences.

Thanks in advance.

Running costs? Please buy an aqua; not a Range Rover.

@Jaguar As a cur buyer one of the things you should check is the running cost. To see if it is within a margin that you could afford. Hence I asked that question. If I was keen on an Aqua I would have started a different topic all together. I would really appreciate some valuable information please. If you have no idea stop trolling around. =)

A Range Rover is a luxury item.

if you need to ask how much a luxury item costs, that means you probably shouldn't buy it.

@Watchman Range Rover is basically the Rolls Royce of an SUV. That means it is a Luxury Vehicle. I know its going to cost a lot. But i want to know how much is A LOT? Please guys just answer the question if you know the answer.

there was an 08 vogue s'charged advertised at 18 mil. found that quite cheap when the RR sports were going above that.

@Fuzzo Thank you for giving the first valuable comment to this topic. :) I did contact that seller, but it seems i'm too late. It was sold for 15Mil. I found out this morning. So i'm guessing that's what it sells for in today's market. That was 4200CC Supercharged V8 Petrol. (at the moment I own a 4500CC petrol engine vehicle of different make and model and it does 2km per liter in city limits and 6km per liter outstation running with my kind of running ;) So i'm guessing the Range Rover would be something similar to cost of running)

And yes your right, the Sports is a lot more than that and i'm honestly a fan of the Vogue. :) I wonder if parts are freely available and if its expensive as well. what I hear is that Range Rover's are a bit Fragile when it comes with so many options.

I don't own a Range Rover vogue but have a Discovery(petrol) and a friend who owns a 2006 Supercharged Vogue.

Frontier are not exactly the cheapest people when it comes to maintenance. Parts are quite expensive and sometimes take a few weeks since it has to be brought down from London. They are not very well stocked. A basic service for the Discovery costs between 35,000 - 40,000 so I suppose the Vogue will be around that price.

According to my friend the electronics and the air suspension are the things that give them the most amount of trouble. The parts are not what I would call cheap when it comes to replacing as well. According to my friend they average about 3kmpl in Colombo and roughly about 6-7 out of Colombo depending on how you drive.

Its the vehicle to buy and not the poser Evoques. The maintenance cost will be high if you compare with the Japanese cars and will be on par with the Mercs (after all its a Range Rover) and availability of parts will be a bit hard to come by through Frontier, but people do say that they have stocks now with the Sathosa Motors taking over of half the company.

Yes air suspension is one of the things that can go wrong, but if you find a vehicle with the units replaced then there wont be any issues. It is recomended that you maintain it at the agents or a specialist garage and not resort to makabaas tinkering.

I sold a 2006 Supercharged Range in 2011 for 18 mil (it was the most loaded of its kind and had only 5000kms on the clock) when a client of mine upgraded his for the facelift.

Low market value is because the mudalali types doesnt understand what the vehicle stands for and keeps asking about fuel consumption and resale value which are interconnected in SL and when you mention the engine size they think about the Montero's with the 3.0/3.8l engines doing 3.5kmpl and argues with you based on that.

@Rae Yes I was hoping someone would say the service would cost around that much, most of it goes for labour actually. Ahh.. Electronics.. see that's the problem, you never know when one important link might give up.. No matter how well you maintain.. What does your friend think about the vehicle over all? Is he happy with it or looking to give it away any chance he gets? After all I guess its an acquired taste to own a range rover no matter how costly it may be.

You being a Land rover owner what are your thoughts? I have never owned a Land rover. Are you happy with Frontier? Are you happy with your Discovery? Because I'm guessing the Range and Discovery might be quite similar in most ways.

But what I really would like to know are the downsides your friend has on the Range Rover. If I do get one its gonna be a keeper so i'm not worried about resale value.

And thanks for the info. :) Very helpful.

@Gummybr Yes I agree with you.. The Evoque to me is a disgrace for the range rover. what they have done is tried to make the "Range Rover" affordable. In my Opinion the vogue is a true Range Rover, not even the Sport. I hear the sport is built on the Discovery Chassis. I'm not too sure but that's what I heard.

Spending Rs.50k even at a service is not a problem, as long as I don't have to rush to Frontier every now and then trying to get something replaced. I'm not planning to do any heavy mileage on it as well. so shouldn't be a problem i guess. Oh well, gotta keep my eye out for a well maintained vogue. One last thing. how big is the Tank? 100liters I'm guessing?

Thanks for the helpful info. :)

Yes...the old one was...the new one on the other hand is based on the new Range Rover...so it actually is a Range Rover

@iRage Correct. I think I got this info from Top gear. But seriously adding options like Sonar, I mean you really think.. When will you ever use it? Lets be honest no one is going to cross a river in a Range Rover Sport. You have the real 4x4 for that. may be one day when you least expect it, it will be useful, but hits the pocket hard when you have to get it replaced. ;)

When it comes to cars there no problem money cant solve man.. You say you wont be running it much.. so when something's wrong just send it to the agent and they'll fix it up for you.. and I'm sure they'll even come pick it up and drop it off for you if THAT is your problem.. and if running cost or service cost or resale value isnt a problem, why are you still here asking allion-mentality questions? just go buy the dam thing..

I started following this thread thinking it would be an interesting read.. but this thread is starting to suck balls now!

Like I said before the downsides are the electronics to it and the air suspension system. For example we were in Katharagama and the front left air bag decided it was time to go so the jeep had to be brought back to Colombo on a flat bed because they advise against driving it. Same thing happened to my friend in the Vogue when they were going for dinner in Colombo. This is though after about 4-5 years of ownership im talking for the suspension. So if you do buy one make sure it has been replaced already coz its about 450k to replace all four. Frontier are not bad just wish they were better stocked. The vehicles aren't problematic and they dont live in the garage so I hope I haven't given out that impression.

They love their Vogue and definitely not interested in selling at this point in time. We abosolutely love the our vehicle and would definitely look at another Land Rover when it comes to changing what we have. After having a Montero, Prado and now the Discovery you just can't compare the ride comfort and build quality in the cabin. Drives nicer on the road and just overall a much nicer place to be inside.

The Discovery has an 82litre tank not sure how big the one in the Range is.

Problem with a Range or a Disco is that you need to run them a lot because the battery amps need to be kept at a constant level (charged). Reason is that although you switch off the vehicle the electronic stuff like suspension does work over time keeping the vehicle safe and keeping it level on all four corners. That alone consumes a lot of electricity and keeping it in a garage for extended periods of time will mean that the battery will drain out and the dash will look like a Christmas tree.

If you keep the vehicle in tip top shape you will not have to run to Frontier everyday. Do your services properly and make sure that the vehicle is kept in good condition and it wont give you any trouble.

There was a used Range at Frontier up for sale a week back, its a 2004 if I remember correct but was well maintained by the previous owner go and check it out, you may not like the colour combination but it looks ok, not a top of the range spec, but has a lot of options that others of its time didnt have.

Range tank is 100liters.

@Rae: Yes the Disco is one amazing vehicle. Comfy, real good off road and it was the vehicle that put the Land Rover at top of the Sri Lankan luxury segment of the car market in 2006 - 2007 era before the Sport came, it was more of a poor mans Range for me. Disco has a 88liter tank.

i dont think 15 mil is the correct market price for it. i think it's a bit too low for a SC vogue... still it's a damn good deal

I did contact that seller, but it seems i'm too late. It was sold for 15Mil. I found out this morning. So i'm guessing that's what it sells for in today's market.

Yeah it's a damn good deal. That's just 4 million more than the Evoque.

I have owned a range rover vogue, 2005 model facelift version. All I can say is that if you don't mind spending 2-3mil in the next couple of years stay away. But if you do have that kind of money there is notting like it, its an absolute beast of a vehicle when it works.

I hate the people who bash these permit cars, true it has ruined the car market altogether, but it has given a level of beauty on the streets that we newer had. Also it has made the toyota lovers think about beamers.

@RAE Definitely going for one which has all four of them replaced.


@Gummybr I think i'll drop by at Frontier and check the Vogue out. Speaking of colour, would love to own a white Vogue.


@Jaguar Yes that's the one I called up and checked, It was sold for 15Mil.


@Fuzzo You may be right, but its a 2008 Vogue and the market for a Petrol Vehicle is always lower than a Diesel, and considering its a 4200cc V8.


All in all I'm very happy with the relevant responses. Good chatting with you guys. Happy Hunting for me. :D

Actually I am also in the hunt for a Range Rover Vogue or Maybe Sport but the sport seems to overpriced. I am not in much of a hurry. Just waiting for the proper moment. Had a look at a silver one and the guy was asking 28 million for it!!!
