United Kingdom 2012 Range Rover Westminster TDV8 Orkney Grey

Took the first proper run out since lockdown over to Cambridge [to sit for two hours while someone waffled on about designing our new kitchen] along the A14, about a 70 mile round trip, sat on the A14 at a steady 67mph and thought to myself "this is a rather civilised way to travel....innit". The journey there & back was far more interesting than the bit in the middle. 2012 Orkney Grey Westminster 4.4TDV8 with Ivory interior.........nice!

Scotland 2009 Range Rover Westminster TDV8 Stornoway Grey

Well don't I feel like the village idiot! Rolling with laughter

FF has been SORN since March, sat in the driveway on the CTEK. Had to move it last night as we had some garden stuff delivered which wouldn't fit past the car, so moved it down the drive and left it there overnight.

Went out this morning to move it back, starts up fine and then while reversing back up the driveway the engine dies, battery light on and all the various HDC warning stuff. Tried restarting a few times, nothing, starter not even turning over. Much swearing ensued and so I get the CTEK and hook it up to get it recharged, wondering how on earth a virtually new battery could have gone flat overnight. Then get back to work (from home)

10 minutes later, glance at mobile phone and notice a text message. It's from my tracker telling me engine disabled successfully. That's when the lightbulb goes on in my brain - last night, I'd sent the engine disable SMS to the tracker and forgotten about it. Normally it responds right away but occasionally it doesn't. It had only kicked into life just after I started it up this morning, hence the sudden unexplained death on the driveway.

Rolling with laughter

Only saving grace is SWMBO wasn't in, so I didn't have to endure the "it broke again?" speech 09 RR Westminster 3.6TDV8 - Stornoway Grey

With some trepidation I folded the rear seats flat to collect my sons new bike. I’ve seen a few “my rear seats won’t return” threads and didn’t want to be another statistic Rolling Eyes

Luckily for me all went to plan, one happy son and one happy me Very Happy

Fuel pump replaced today. Mechanic said that it was a pig of a job. Primarily because I had brimmed it before the pump died on me!

What is it about these westies that they seem to be quite reliable? Were they built on a different production line?

The one I have has been OK for the last 4-5 months and for that reason it's still with me, however I cannot shake the anxiety when I set off on a journey where if something goes wrong and I don't get there consequences will happen, maybe my thoughts go towards another marque because of this. Maybe I should go for another RR as I have experienced the quirks of ownership and can maybe choose another that won't bite me so much.

Who knows what's round the corner! Some of the reactions to me even looking at something else have ranged from understanding to quite aggressive for even suggesting that another vehicle exists.

Recipe for peace of mind:
Membership of breakdown service;
Find a trusted independent workshop;
Identify the common faults;
Budget for preventative maintenance plan over the next three years.
Finally, remember Range Rovers will never be cheap ! Forty years of progress. 1972-2012

I bought with caution!

Low miles
JLR service history
2 owner
Had an interim service before collection
Found an indy but I wasn't impressed as I seemed to know more about the car with information gleaned from here.
The common faults are what wound me up! The car was like that kid who caught every cough an cold known to man.

As i said once £xxxx was spent resolving these design/bad maintenance faults it has been ok but previously had left me waiting for recovery services a little to often.

I have time to review whats available to me and the L405 still appears on the list so I will see what happens.

Reactions to this thread have so far been strange.
