Talk me out of it, or Range Rover vs Cayenne

Ok I'm writing this after a few cocktails, so a little levity is expected. The wife is on the hunt for a new vehicle, which always gets me looking to. I have been looking at 03 Cayenne S' and Range Rover HSE's.

Both are great vehicles, and both have their issues, I see rennlist calling the 03's the Beta version and I'm sure the Rovers are the same. But on a direct comparison the Rovers win for what's included in the price and style, but I would love to have two - two season Porsches in the garage.

I would love to hear from anyone that is or was in the same boat and the trails and tribulations of each.

Thanks for watching, try the shrimp, I'll be here all week....

From my research I would not get a Cayenne older than an '05 and then it would have to have some kind of dealer certified warranty (best) or an aftermarket warranty.

Not much traffic here, Rennlist has an active Cayenne board w/some knowledeable folks there.

I see you have a Disco II. I have a 1999 Disco II, which has just come off it's exteneded warranty. I have had it since new and have not really had many problems, certainly not anything near the reputation of them. In the last year I have had more issues, like both air bags on the rear suspension (it has ACE and SLS) needing to be replaced and I keep after the leaks. Transmission seals, head gasket, etc. I am glad I had the ext. warranty. I'll probably be moving it on in the next year or after something major goes wrong Since you are considering an RR, I guess your expereince has not been bad. Wife kind of liked the RR Sport when it first came out. We were seriously considering the Cayenne, but after reading about some of the problems and Porsche's attitude along with our own bad experinces with the local Porsche dealerships, we have pretty much decided not to go that route. Seriously considering a Cadillac SRX. In the past I have needed the off road capabilites, but that has now come to an end, so that is no longer a major factor.

Good luck with your decision.

Ray,

Thanks for your reply. Yes the Land Rovers (and Discos) do have they're quirks, as I see so do the Porsches. I've looked at all the same priced stuff, Tahoe, SRX, etc., and on the more positive note the US cars would be cheaper to fix.

Most of my Disco stuff was fixed under warranty, but is now off. I did get a little concerned when I saw "head gasket" as my old Range Rover had it's go and I actually had to have the head machined for warpage. This makes me a little concerned with the RR choice as well. I do believe the British use crappy steel for these vehicles.

I think I'll hold off until the new year to see what happens with prices, as I cannot see spending 50-60K on a vehicle that can need major expensive repairs.....especially when there are know issues that the Company won't acknowledge as a design flaw.

Cheers

drew,

The RR's are about the same price, but have more features (such as NAV) included in the price. 03 was the first year of the new styled RR too.

Do you want to earn big money through the Internet? How do you change 6$ into 6000$? Reading this message you can change your life! It had changed my life too.I happened upon this message in one forum,and I decided try to do it.As usual, rambling on all sorts of forums I found this article which told me that I can earn thousands dollars for a few weeks only if I put up 6$.Oh!-thought I.It perhaps one of the dibs for stupid guys. But I decided to read it completelly, and understand ęwhat does it mean Herbalife?Ľ And ęwhat can this firm suggest us?.ĽThen I read that I must send in 1% on 6th purse which are listed later.Then you must strike First purse out from this list thereby having deposed this list onto one line up. 6th line became empty.There are you enter the number of your WMZ purse and send this information with your number of purse in 200 different forums. None tricks! I thought that I can lose nothing but 6$ and Idecided to try it.And... I didnt believe but in 7 days money start to get into my purse! I was shocked! I thought, maybe thatís all and money stop to come in my purse in a few days. I was surprised, when I saw 25$ in my purse in a week, then more then 1000$ on the end of second week, and near 10000$ to the end of third week.!!!On the 4th week I counted near 42000$! I payed only 6$ and I receive This perfect result! Cool!! I hadnít much money before I find this article. I didnít believe in it until I started to receive money order from all of the world. I bought everything that I need and it come in handy.
And now I will tell you how does this sistem work and why.I will , if you do exactly everything that you can read later, you will earn much more money that you think, and you shouldnít make any efforts!And please:read it a few times!Please, follow this directions and money will start to come in your purse!Itís very simple! And legally.You deposit consist only 6$...Important:itís not a deception and itís not unduly, with all this going on you risk nothing and itís work!ATTENTION: precisely follow the directions and more then 50000$ will in you purse during 20-60 days!it works thanks to honesty our participants.
So? May I introduce you 3 main a great stride toward a success:if you havent these 6th WMZ purse so you must sign in http://www.webmoney.us. Acquaint please very attantively this system, how it worked, and choose optimal for you variant of
replenishment your purse (you can read about it in www.webmoney.us/operations.shtml) Then deposit 6$
in your purse.
2)at first, take please, number of WMZ purse from list and send on it 1$.In flield \" notes"\ write please,\"add me to the list of WMZ purse"\. everything that you done - you created some service, and it was absolutelly legally!You ask a lawful service for which you pay. Send 6$ for the next WMZ purses ( in 1$ on every purse) 1. Z364083035174 2. Z220940822302 3. Z372417398787 4. Z289207315460 5. Z618146542071 6. Z424457914038. And now cross first purse out from this list,thereby having moved this list on one line up(6 became 5, 5 became 4, etc) and enter, please, on the 6th line number of your WMZ purse.
3) you can do different overpatching but you must keep the main idea.Lodge this article on, no less then 200 forums and News Groups. remember!the more you lodge articles, the higher will be your income, and this income depends on you.This business continue to live and prosper because all our participants are honest and serious. So when you arrive at first position,you will have thousands dollars as a creator of list!It cost only 6$ and quite trivial work!The essentials, this thing work!it's cool!
don't put it off till tomorrow, do it NOW!THE TIME IS MONEY!
and now I'll tell you , why you really lose nothing, and how you gain this money!
for example, I'll recieve only 5 answers from 200 distributions ( it's minimum ).So I receive 5$ being only on 5th position in the list!now these 5 persons(each person) make in 200 distributions. with my purse minimum on the 5th position, and 5 people answer to the first fifth . so now I have 25$!Then these 25 people make in 200 distributions with my purse but now my number are on the 4th line( because they enter their numbers)and on their query answer 5 people. And at present I have 125$!etc. So when I will be on the first position of the list I will have 15625$ in my purse!!!!!Is it impressive number isnt it? taking into account that your primary deposit is only 6$!When your number havent already been in the list, you simply send 6$ on the same purse that like at first time (you must keep this article in your notebook)and again having moved numbers of purse and cross the first number off, enter your number in the 6th line and again make a distributions!can you imagine that 1000 people in the world join to the internet and read these articles every day!They do it like you at this moment!so?!can you spent only 6$ that check , is this system work or not?And if you do everything precisely, how it describe above, it will be working!
this line is for pessimists:if suddenly this business will died and nobody send me money!is that so tragic?
Every day in Internet show up 20000-50000 new users!as predicted of specialists only in 2006 the number of Internet users increase from 9 to 21 million people!what chances that they will want to test themselves in some new sides? remember:honest and only peoples honest allow to flourish this business!
and at last:it's really big axiom : if you want to take something - you must to give something!and if you want to take more, you must give more!
