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.

The rangies have a lot going for them but that new CX9 looks excellent for the money and she's brand spanking new.

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.
A lot of overhang with the front and rear bumper areas?

I never wash my car for years ,Ray got in it the other day ,expecting a pig inside and remarked how the interior was like new ,my rear seats have never been sat in,the fronts litres of hide foods/oils.

Short front overhang, longish rear combined with huge wheelbase.

Way, WAY too big. If I have to go to the city and park I will take another car.
The current model is even bigger than yours.

I can only speak for the current model; but in my experience they are mega reliable.
