Benefits of Land Rover Approved Used Promise explained, plus how to source a favoured vehicle online.
The Land Rover Approved Used Promise ensures your second-hand vehicle leaves the forecourt in “immaculate condition”, the manufacturer explained. Prospects include the: Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Evoque, Discovery, Discovery Sport, Freelander and the legendary, long-lived, Defender. Let us consider the advantages of buying a used model direct from the manufacturer.
The 2 Year, Land Rover Approved, Warranty covers the cost of certain repairs if the vehicle is less than 5 years old and has covered less than 100,000 miles (at point of sale). There is no limit to the number of claims – up to the sale price of the vehicle – or any further mileage limit. Technicians only fit genuine parts.
The 2 Year UK and European Roadside Assistance provides “complete reassurance”, the manufacturer said. It covers minor inconveniences such as punctures, breakdown and collision. The service also incorporates: home start, onward travel, vehicle recovery plus overnight accommodation and is available 24 hours a day, every day.
The 165 Multi-Point Inspection ensures the mechanical components, electrical systems, exterior paintwork and interior meet the required standard. Such checks are carried out with the “utmost rigour”, the manufacturer confirmed. There is also a road test, and the vehicle has to be personally signed off via a brand technician.
Mileage and History Check
The Independent Mileage and History Check guarantees further peace of mind. Land Rover, for example, consults external sources to confirm the vehicle is not subject to outstanding finance – in which case it could be repossessed - has not been stolen or written-off, and that the mileage stated on the dashboard is right.
Conditional Vehicle Exchange Agreement
The Conditional Vehicle Exchange Agreement requires the manufacturer to replace the vehicle with something of similar specification if it has a “demonstrable fault that cannot be resolved to your satisfaction”. This option is available for the first 30 days/1,000 miles. You might, alternatively, take a refund.
MOT Test Warranty
The Land Rover MOT Test Warranty minimises the expense if your vehicle fails its first, or next, MOT. The motor manufacturer contributes up to £750 towards the cost of repairing, replacing and/or adjusting a wide range of components. There is a £50 excess.
Drive Away Insurance
Complementary, 7 Day, Land Rover Drive Away Insurance eliminates the need to swap insurance from your current car to its replacement, prior to collection. It also enables the motor manufacture – without first requiring proof from you that the replacement is insured – to arrange Vehicle Excise Duty (road tax).
Source Land Rover
The Land Rover website makes it straightforward to source your next, used, vehicle. Search criteria includes a favoured: model, engine, fuel type, transmission, body style, variant, seat material, seat colour, price, age, distance from a convenient postcode, mileage, paint colour plus options/specialised equipment.
