Haha, I've had 5 Range Rovers now this is my third L322 but the others were a pair of P38's both 4.6 Thors. I have to say I had no huge bother with any of the 5. The second L322 was a bit of a pain in the bum but i escaped relatively unscathed. I have to say the one I bought last November has been pretty good and whilst I keep threatening to buy another supercharged (wonderful car) I cant really get my head around spending more than double this ones value again on a machine to sit outside and do very little miles. Both P38's never let me down, the 99 Thor I changed the airsprings on and rebuilt the compressor etc. The 01 Vogue was quite well behaved, mainly electrical issues (nav computer was dead when I got it, along with the ABS ECU and subsequently a door latch failed which as you'll know are the most complex bit of kit known to man!) The 07 Supercharged was the best though, history is chronicled in my old truck thread - Quavey's N-Connecta If you fancy a long read!You don't wanna be messing with an L322, you need an old school P38 diesel like mine wanna swap???
My long term average for the Navara is 38MPG and I do somewhere in the same region as yourself mileage wise (Bristol and back is a 'normal' journey for me, via Newbury of course....) but must admit AdBlue usage does seem to vary even though I do almost the same type of miles each week? Will have to measure it again though as recently had to have 3 of the o2 sensors replaced on the exhaust system! Luckily all done under warranty......happily it's the first issue i've had on the Nav though after 3 years of owning it
Well... Yes there is a bit of Range anxiety etc and there are two reasons why the Tesla isn't so bad, first its got the longest range of any electric car on sale. Rated at 379 miles on WLTP which is a miles more realistic test than NEDC (they are rated at 450+on that system!). 400 miles has been achieved from a Long Range Raven in the real world (which is what I've got). The other factor with a Tesla is the supercharging network, in my case its free due to the car I've bought, but even if you have to pay you literally just plug it in and it charges a credit card kept on file. Its that easy. We've already got a few in the business and I've driven a colleagues a few times.So no more Navara! It would be good to see how you get on with the Tesla. Everybody I know with electric is obsessed with range and battery levels.
