Hey guys.
Been offered a 44k km Range Rover Sport TDV6 for a pretty decent price. My only issue is reliability especially seeing it's 4 year old.
I'm tossing up between this and a brand new CX9
If anyone has had experience with this model would love to hear your thoughts.

Great tow unit ,we towed with a similar spec Discovery,same chassis and running gear towing a enclosed race trailer with either the 430ch on board or similar waited car ,never an issue ,good fuel return and massive torque ,not one of those gearbox's which is for ever hunting for gears while under towing load.

Trailer never moved on the trips and brakes worked well and the towing adjustment for the suspension always had the car at the correct angle .

Cheers Rob. Good to know for when I get a boat.
This is going to be the wife's so it pretty much has to do nothing fancy, just don't want to buy something that is going to implode once I drive it out the door

These cars are way more bullet proof than they used to be.

I would by the RR for sure.

My RR hasn't skipped a beat in 29,000km. The most reliable car that I have owned for many years.

I can see why people love Rangies now, there is nothing quite like them. I just wish the current model occupied a little less real estate as it diminishes its usability substantially.
