Where to find second-hand range rovers for sale

Land Rover's Range Rover has been a part of British life since 1970. In the last 40 years, it has gone through several incarnations and engines, yet it still remains immensely popular. This article provides you with a short guide to the areas to watch when buying and it gives you some tips on where to find the 4x4 of your dreams.

A brief buyer's guide

Early cars (the Classic) are mechanically simple and robust. Later, electronic injection engines can suffer with ECU issues and the hard-working suspension can eat bushes (and many of them). Diesels seem prone to blowing head gaskets. Rust is the main problem with this generation and tail-gates, floors and inner wings are the prime places to check. The P38A arrived in 1995 and brought with it more complications. Service and recall history are vital as a check of the head gaskets. Tail-gates still have rust problems and
air-suspension can be unreliable. Finally, ensure that all the bit and bobs work properly. Although most faults can be repaired with time and concentration, they're annoying and can lead to other failures. Advice The main thing to remember, whichever generation you want, is that there is no such thing as a cheap, used Rangie. If you buy low, you can expect big bills, so buy the very best that you can afford to begin with.

Where to find your Rangie

Your main Range Rover and Land Rover dealer is only worth visiting if you are after a very recent model, for example the Range Rover sport. If you have trade credentials, then you may be able to persuade him to let you in on the part exchange cars, as many owners stick with the brand. Other classic models
Older Classic models often appear in publications like Classic cars for sale and Classic car weekly. Both these have an online presence if you prefer. Land Rover Enthusiast and Land Rover World are dedicated monthly magazines that have a good selection of cars in their classifieds (even if your tastes sway towards a used Defender). Motoring sales sites
The regular motoring sales sites always have Range Rovers for sale: Try Exchange and Mart, Autotrader, Pistonheads, Desperate Seller, Gumtree, Preloved, and Motors UK. In addition to these, you should be checking the club sites like the Range Rover Register. Finally, don't forget the specialist used Rangie dealers around the country (for example "The Man For Land Rovers") and the Range Rover resource sites like Landroverportal.co.uk and Landy-finder.co.uk.
