2006 Land Rover LR3 Recalls
On certain LR3 and Range Rover Sport vehicles. There is a misalignment between the steering column and air bag clock spring. This may cause a break in the airbag wiring and lead to the SRS Safety Restraint System light coming on. A bad circuit may also prevent the air bag from deploying, leading to injury or death. The dealer will insert 1mm spacers between the left hand side of the column switch mounting point and column lock to improve alignment of the column switch. Two foam pads will also be fitted to the top of the steering column switch gear to provide clearance between the cowl and clock spring face. The Land Rover recall # is P045
Certain aftermarket Thule hitch style bicycle racks with fold down style bike arms. A pinch bolt exists between the bike arm bracket and the upright assembly of the hitch style bicycle rack. When moving the bike arm bracket to its down position, this pinch point has the potential of causing a severe laceration or amputation to the users finger tips or hand. Thule will provide a repair kit and instructions free of charge

2006 Land Rover LR3 Reviews
I have owned 5 Rover's in the past. Disco,Disco2,P38 RR. These all had some issues to deal with, but what many owners don't understand these are special purpose vehicles and are not a Honda. That being said, My 2006 LR3 HSE has been the best so far. No issues what so ever. Our new RR Supercharged is a absolute marvel. This is one KILLER vehicle!!!! One last comment ; Rover dealers are the be...
I purchased a used 2006 LR3, with 50K miles. It some electrical problems that took several trips to the dealer to fix. I have put another 12K plus miles on it, and it runs great. I would never buy a used Land Rover w/o an extended warranty and service plans, because any work done on it is EXPENSIVE !!
