Land Rover LR3 Problems

A failed vehicle height sensor can cause deactivation of the air suspension.

Our technicians report the exterior door handles and Land Rover emblems tend to fade prematurely.

The tire pressure monitoring control module is known to indicate a defective wheel pressure sensor, when it is really the control module itself that has failed. Careful diagnostic should be performed for this repair.

Land Rover LR3 Questions

and now the brake light has started to come on and go off

I'm about to buy a land rover LR3 with 90,000 miles on it. The carfax shows that the short block was replaced at 46,000 miles. How concerning is this? Also, it shows "air suspension checked" quite a few times. I am having a dealer check it out before I buy, but should I even bother?

if no lights are flashing does that mean nothing is wrong? once i start driving the trucks suspension goes back to normal..but once i park it for a long time (12 hours or more) it begins to sink. any thoughts?

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 

Some sport utility vehicles may have fuel tanks that contain a out of specification breather pipe. This may result in deterioration of a grommet and result in pipe detaching from tube. When the Fuel level is above the the level of the joint, fuel may enter the breather pipe.This may cause rough engine running, stalling, hard starts, hesitation, and misfires. If the Vapor canister becomes saturated, the fuel may leak and cause a fire hazard. Dealer will replace fuel tanks free of charge. The Land Rover recall # is P001

Land Rover LR3 Reviews

I bought my Lr3 about 2 years ago with 52600 miles on it and in that time I've replaced a tie rod, ball joint, alternator, battery,brake rotors and now got to replace front drive shaft and front wheel bearing...turning out to be one of the worse vehicles I've ever owned!!!

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 !!
