New to the Land Rover World - 2013 Evoque Pure
I was thinking about getting an Evouqe but I am a bit hesitant hearing about the problems the 2013's have. Is there anything I should
note. The one I was specfically looking at is a 2013 pure for about $29k with 47k miles on it, which seems like a bit much. Its also from the dealer but no warranty on it.
This is the car fax report https://www.carfax.com/VehicleHistor...VN2BG6DH798744
So I guess a few questions are:
Are the 2013 plagued enough to avoid them or get one thats a cpo with warranty.
A lot of the carfax records show reprogramming of transmission control units and other things.
Is that normal for a land rover?
What are the main issues with the 2013; im coming from the mini cooper world, so I am pretty versed in diy mechanics.

First, Welcome to the forum!
We have a MY13 Pure Plus. We have had zero problems in 43 months of ownership. Having said that, it is a garage queen - grocery getter. Never been driven in snow and rarely driven in the rain, only 7000 miles so far. I think most of the transmission problems started in MY14, with the new 9 speed automatic. Maybe someone who has put "normal" miles on a MY13 could comment on any of their issues.
I have a 2013 Evoque Pure coupe. No major problems in 27,000 miles. Only problems I addressed under warranty were a couple very minor complaints that most owners would not complain about. The transmission programming was an issue in the 2014+ 9 speed transmission. I look forward to driving the car everyday.
I have a 2013 Dynamic and it's been perfect. Where did you get the idea that 2013 models have problems? IMHO the 2013 is one of the best years. The next year you have the 9 speed and tranny craziness.

Forget about the complaints, the 2013 is the most reliable. What determines the condition of the car is the care that the previous owner (and the dealership) gave to it. I looked at the resale value of mine (27,000 miles in show room condition with obsessive maintenance, both dealer and my own, and it came to $30,000. You won't find many 2013 Evoques in this condition. Be careful of buying your Evoque at an overpriced amount.
