Extended test drive

So I filled the form on line for the 'Extended' test drive.
Played telephone ping pong with the sales guy for a couple of days and eventually got through to him this morning/

I asked about the availability for an Extended test drive of a new 110 and was told "yes sir, that's no problem, we've extended our test drive from 30 minutes to 1 hour". Laughing

Explained I was looking for a longer period (e.g. 24 hrs) but was told, 'Oh no sir, we can't do that...'.

Ho hum.

I took one for an hour drive yesterday, like yourself when I orginally saw extended test I was hoping for 24 hours. Was very impressed though with the car! Shame I didnt have a chance to take it off road, but not sure they would of appreciated that Laughing

If you want an off-road test drive why not sign up for an LRE full day? If you have a decent dealership they will foot the >£300 bill for the voucher if they might get a sale from it.

I just don’t understand LR over this , you would think that they would be trying to get the owners of the “classic” Landy who have doubts about the new one to go for a proper test drive with off-road if wanted and try to change their views. To any other car maker an “extended” test drive is 48 hours or longer not an hour instead of 30 minutes....... Epsom Green Tdi300 County HT is now an SW

I don't think they're interested in owners of the 'Classic' Landy. Their original marketing took the Censored . The service I've received for my Defender from 2 local dealers has made it pretty clear they'd rather not see me again.
