Everything I've seen has been £240 VED for the 2.2 auto.

I never really drive my car in to the city so I'm not concerned about it being Euro5. I'd rather be more confident in the reliability than roll the dice on getting DPF/oil dilution problems.

Does anyone have the service schedule for the 2.2?

No service schedule, but I've got a digital PDF brochure if that's of any interest, UK version, not available on the JLR Approved Used site. Send PM for a cloud link.
PS: Great choice.

You can get a service schedule from Topix but they now charge for access.
I believe they want £20 for an hours access which is a little ridiculous really, but I guess it's long enough to download everything you'll ever need if you really want it.
To be fair, it's all rubbish these days anyway. 99% of a service sheet is 'examine brake pads, check wheel bolts etc - which you'll do anyway. Change cabin and air filters every couple of years or just if they're dirty, fuel filter every service alongside the oil and filter. There really isn't much else to swap. The only additionals are cambelt and gearbox fluid and filters.

I can't believe they charge you to access your own cars service schedule!

I think you're right and I'm mainly looking for an indication as to how well it's been maintained by the previous owner(s).

I guess I'd just like to know when the big ticket items like the cambelt change and gearbox service are due, either to check that they've been done, or if I should be budgeting for them.

I believe the online service history is free - and found here https://osh.landrover.com/home?brand=land-rover
Mine has no service book so it's on there, but my Jag has a service book so a similar search doesn't report anything.
Actually - that also has some service sheet info!!

Service information is available in the free Online Service History‪ https://osh.landrover.com/‬ Just enter your VIN.

It also displays if you have any outstanding Field Service Actions. If you do, call your local dealer and get it booked in for free.

Servicing check sheets are available from the Servicing Information tab and select whichever service type you need from the drop down menu.

You can also put your car reg and mileage into https://www.landrover.co.uk/ownership/s ... nline.html

It will tell you approved dealers and their cost for the service and tell you the service schedule and items.

Eg
Service 3: 63,000 miles / 72 months
Service Due: March 2022
Brake Hoses
Engine Oil
Interior Air Filter
Labour Hours - (2.5)
Oil Filter
Washer Fluid
Brake Fluid

Or enter your car details here for a list of services and a service plan quote:

https://www.landrover.co.uk/ownership/s ... plans.html

Finally, you can email a dealer who will kindly quote you for a service and should give you a complete breakdown of Item and cost. Well Listers did for me anyway.
