Right decision, think a few people on here will attest you have to look at a few to find a good one…or go in eyes open and know exactly what works are required.

United Kingdom 2011 Range Rover Vogue SE TDV8 Buckingham Blue

Mileage..... I wouldn’t get too hung up on it if everything else is right.

I know that’s not really helped.

Mine needed oil cooler changing at about 83k if that helps.....

Depends on what type of journeys it did also. I used to do 100miles a day commuting and over the last year have started doing mainly 3-5mile journeys a few times a week. Suspect that's what caused my EGR valve problem.

I thought about going to view that car but at the price they want, the driver’s seat condition and the damage to the paint put me off. From a dealer that is unacceptable in my eyes. The rusty wheel bolts and chipped finish to the door handle in one of the photos didn’t help. Current vehicles:

Of the condition to the vehicle is others on the market, it's not a good deal. The vehicle is actually on 120,000 and not 111,000 and, there is at least £1,000 in the repairs to the bumper and seats. Add on the gamble with getting the sunroof to work and the cooled seat and, it's actually quite expensive. £13.5k gets some very good pristine examples of cars vs that at
£12.5k, which would cost more than buying a tidy car with no issues. They were offering no money off. 2011 Range Rover Vogue SE 4.4 TDV8

I’d either got for a FFRR 4.4 TDV8, the Cayenne 3 litre diesel or if you don’t care about MPG the Turbo.
Other one you might have overlooked, £10k would get you quite a nice Merc GL they’re nice cars and have all the off road stuff and towing ability a FFRR has, I know some have cooled seats.
I don’t think the interiors are quite as nice but they’re a good car.

Thanks all for the advice.

I kept pretty much to budget and have made a purchase of an absolutely pristine 2 owner (last owner owned it for 6 years), full service history 2011 Vogue SE with a year's MOT. There isn't a single mark on the car inside or out - i'm not just saying that - it's showroom quality still inside and out. I couldn't believe what I'd stumbled upon. And there is hardly any wear on the leather.

It has the lovely ivory leather with the dark stitching opposed to piping, heated and cooled seats in the front and heated in the back, heated steering wheel, sunroof, rear screen entertainment (with the remote and both headphones still), Logic 7 HD, adaptive cruise control, Range Rover treadplates on every door sill, digital dash, privacy glass, 20" RR wheels with brand new Pirellis, cornering headlamps and cornering lights and double glazing! I know most of that is standard on the Vogue SE but, pretty sure the cornering headlamps, privacy glass, RSE, treadplates and double glazing were all optional extras? It also has the running boards and front and rear mudflaps fitted at main dealer costing £1,300!


Now having had both - the 2006 3.6 and the 2011 4.4, wow what a difference. If anyone bought a 3.6, they are lovely cars, plenty of power, quiet and comfortable and you would not be disappointed. But wow, the 2011 4.4 is in a different league. It's so quiet, the steering is so light, it feels like they've lopped a big elephant off the weight of the front - it feels so much lighter and it's so refined and quiet, especially with that double glazing. The active dynamic suspension really is a massive upgrade worthwhile having and there clearly is more refinement and sound deadening fitted to this. The 8 speed box adds to the package, mostly at speed because it means less engine noise. So, now I've got one, I think they're totally worth the jump in price.

The bits that need doing? Well, one of the rear calipers needs replacing. I got the money off the price for this, as saw the signs it had been sticking. The other thing is the air con pressure control valve - it's not too bad at the moment - from cold it takes about 5 minutes for it to kick in and then doesn't cause an issue the rest of the day - even with various journeys. I'm conscious this is a pain in the backside job but, it's not too bad for now so, I'll do this in time.

From the advice on here, I made sure I looked for a vehicle that had the oil cooler seals done and the auxiliary belt and tensioner. I have both of the receipts for these and both of these jobs were done in the last 2 years so, massive tick there too.

After being conned and sold a poor condition car that I've lost thousands on, I really hope this one will be a good car to me, one I can really cherish and look after.

That looks cracking mate. Those are the seats with semi analine leather. The seats with the piping aren’t.

I put the spec and price list for our model year on the forum and Stan added to the wiki.

Have fun working out how much it was new....
