If your Land Rover dashboard says 41125 miles beyond when a service is required then it is WELL OVERDUE and probably already doing damage now.
A regular service is important for many reasons:
- Having a comprehensive service history will be important to future buyers and help you get a good price for your Land Rover if you decide to sell.
- Maintain the value of your vehicle, by ensuring that it stays in good condition.
- Ensure that the vehicle is safe to drive and reduce the risk of an accident or breakdown.
- Keep running costs to a minimum by preventing fluid leaks, ensuring that tyres are at the correct pressure (which will lower fuel bills) and ensuring that fuel is burned efficiently.
- Pick up on minor issues before they develop into bigger (and more expensive) problems.

How often should you service your Land Rover?
We would also recommend you check the maintenance schedule detailed in your owners manual, or speak to your local Land Rover garage. It will depend on your model and the Land Rovers age. You can also check out a digital version of the handbook for your model on the official Land Rover website, under Owner Information
Months or Miles?
You might read that your Land Rover’s oil should be changed every 10,000 miles, or that it needs a full service every 15,000 miles.
What if you don’t drive much? Can you get away with less frequent checks and changes?
Even if you have low annual mileage, it’s important to maintain a regular Land Rover service schedule. This is because some Land Rover problems are not related to the frequency of use – instead, problems like rust or oil degradation can occur due to decay over time, whether or not the vehicle has been driven a lot. You should also consider the conditions of your warranty – regular services should ensure that you are covered, but missing out on the service schedule could invalidate your warranty.
Rule of thumb
Where you see a recommendation like “Every 6,000 miles or 6 months”, you should go by whichever comes sooner. If you haven’t reached the requisite mileage when the recommended time period is up, we advise you to book in for a service or carry out your own checks anyway.
