Hey, guys, I have 2012 X5 35D now and was looking at 2015-2016 Range Rover Sport, dealer sold the one I was interested in and they have a 2017 f-pace 35t r sport CPO with 40k miles. Is this a good buy as far as reliability goes? I know it has warranty for the next few years but don’t want to be going to the dealer all the time. A buddy of mine who works at a different JLR dealer said to stay away from Jag and rather get a higher mileage RRS as Jaguars even though having the same engine and a lot of parts tend to have more problems. Is that the case?

Thank you!

Some ‘17s had a few quirks. At 40k miles, things should have worked themselves out by now. See if you can get a service history to make sure. Jags have had some gremlins w/ the electronics, but it’s the same unit in LRs, so not sure there’s any reliability difference. I think you can disregard mechanics when it comes to choosing between a vehicle x yrs older with y more miles, especially w/ a CPO to back you up. Supercharged R Sport is a lot of fun. RRS has the very best coachwork, but the Jag is no slouch. I’d get the Jag, but my wife would be mad we didn’t get the RR.

It really depends on how close your dealer is #1 and what kind of warranty you get with the CPO #2. Neither vehicle is a Honda pilot in terms of utter dependability. If it were my only, everyday MUST go, can't let me down vehicle, I wouldn't pick either one of these 2. If you have flexibility and can deal with occasional issues... I'd buy the CPO just for the warranty...

I've heard the exact opposite regarding Jaguar F-Pace vs. RRS reliability. Also, keep in mind the RRS weighs a lot more and has more to go wrong (air suspension in particular).

For my money I chose a 2017 F-Pace 35T CPO back in early December 2020 and the first 2000 miles or so have been delightful :)

One last thing to keep in mind vs your X5 Diesel is that the F-Pace 35T gas mileage sucks and the '17 - '18 models have small fuel tanks. The small tank is my one regret about getting the earlier model. A TD6 Range Rover Sport is probably the more logical choice if you want a 450+ mile range. I'm lucky to break 300 per tank in the Jag on a long highway trip, around town I'm filing up about every 200 miles.

I have had no issues after 6 months with my ‘17 35T R-Sport which I picked up with 27K miles (Not a CPO). It has 2 years warranty and 3 free services left on it. The only thing it needed was the first ICTP upgrade (free) and I have been getting over the air upgrades since. It does great in the snow too. I’m really happy with it, and the velocity tune made it even better. I can see me hanging onto this one for a long time, or until I can find a way to the ‘21 SVR model.
