Buying advice needed from the US

Post by jeffvb9 » Fri Jan 19, 2018 4:56 am

About to purchase my 3d Rover. Need to get some help with my LR4 purchase happening Saturday.

Option 1: 2011 LR4 HSE Fuji White with Black interior 39,000 miles for $28k US.

Option 2: 2013 LR4 LUX with Black package Fully loaded Black with Black interior 51,000 miles for $32,500 US.

Having trouble deciding. Any thoughts here? I'm leaning towards the he 2013 I think but the 2011 is a great deal with very low miles!!!

Firstly, welcome to the forum :thumbright:

If it were me, based purely on specs and colour, I'd go for the 2013 - I'm not wild about white cars though I wouldn't not have one if everything else was right about it.

But condition and history is more relevant.

Good luck :thumbright:

If I'm right the 2011 has the 6-sp auto box and may not come with Xenons, but the 2013 will have the 8sp and Xenons. Think the seats are more comfortable from about that age on too.

I know it's $4.5k difference but surely it's got to be worth the extra. And the few extra miles between the two are negligible. Let's face it, a near 5 year old car that's only done 10k miles a year...yes please!

As anglefire said, check condition/history though.

Something else to consider is that the 2011 LR4 may only have had 5 seats, the 2013 had the extra rear seats for an additional 2 passengers.

Also not sure if I was right about the 8sp in the 2013. Think the V8 may have stuck with the 6sp.

Have a look here:

Good choice. Now it’s time to get your wallet out and start with the upgrades, updates and must-haves.
