Re: GC vs Land Cruiser vs Range Rover

ADGrant said: "First of all skip the hard sell. No premium dealer I have visited has asked me what it would take for me to buy a car today. Secondly, have a decent fleet of loaners. The BMW dealer has BMW loaners (only 3 series but still a new BMW). My friends Porsche dealer sometimes gives him. A panamera when he drops off his Cayenne."

I deal with a locally owned dealer and always get a loaner. Be it a Wrangler or GC Summit Overland, no problem. As I've said here before, small town dealerships know how to treat customers because they have to rely on repeat customers to stay in business.

That is unusual though, and its not a Jeep/Chrysler policy, their policy is "no loaner...ever". No dealers here offer loaners under any circumstances. If they have it a week...no loaner. If they want to compete with upper end marques that policy needs to change.

The worst part about my Jeep reliability issues is no joke, the lack of loaners.

Absolutely does not happen here. I've asked and been told no.

I've called/used every dealer in the area. I've had the Jeep kept at the dealer for 5 days before, my requests for a loaner were denied.

Re: GC vs Land Cruiser vs Range Rover

The most reliable one I've used for service is Darcars in Rockville. Bought mine from Darcars in Silver Spring. I've used Criswell. Koons.

Volkswagen apparently insists that Toureg customers get a loaner. They also provide a hot line for owners to call if they have dealer issues. They are clearly concerned that their dealers won't offer the appropriate level of service for a $55k vehicle.

Re: GC vs Land Cruiser vs Range Rover

I'm curious why these threads compare the Land Cruiser, which is overpriced in the US, instead of the Lexus LX 570 which is the luxury version of the same car and not that much more. I would think that once you're spending $80k on a car you would want the luxury and the prestige. Also, it is nice not to share the dealership with those buying/servicing their Yaris.

To answer the OP's question - yes, I considered a few Land Rover models. At the end of the day, reliability killed it. Plus, the availability of a Maxcare liftetime warranty made it a no-brainer.

I threw in the LC, because I've always liked them, and they perform well off road, though they don't look very distinguished to me these days. Also, I found one near me, a leftover 13 for 69K, before any haggling.

I never considered, the Lexus. Mainly because I figured the LC was over priced enough! However when considering the RR sticker, the Lexus would fit in.
