Land Rover Problems

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Internal failure of the rear cargo door latch can cause the door to not open when using the outside door handle.

A Coolant leak under the middle of the vehicle can be caused by a leaking throttle body deicer. Coolant travels down the engine towards the rear before dripping to the ground.

Low coolant levels can be caused by leaking head gaskets and/or failed cylinder liners. Misfires or engine performance issues usually accompany these problems.

Brakes -- Verified

A pulsation may be noted upon brake application. This condition is commonly caused by warped brake rotors. Our technicians recommend inspecting both front and rear brake rotors when this condition occurs. Brake pads should be replaced along with any warped rotors to correct this condition.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

A sticking windshield wiper switch can cause a delay in wiper operation, especially in cold weather.

Land Rover Owners' Reviews

It is my second 1993 County LWB---The first one, was really nice and clean---sorted and running smooth; but an 18 year old girl, two lanes to my left, was text-messaging and got a message that she had missed her turn--so she whipped it to the right and struck me just behind my seat, in the passenger door: I rolled over 2 complete times. Maybe it was the after-market coil-spring conversion that added to the instability; but the safety and integrity of that Range Rover, during the two complete barrel rolls, was impressively solid. The next 1993 I seek out will have the EAS intact. A functioning EAS somewhat verifies the maintenance ethics of the previous owner/s. The problem with the air suspension is often a simple inexpensive O-ring, but a mechanic wants to scare you into a $1,200.00 coil-spring conversion for his own benefit. Coil spring conversions mean that someone was gouged (Spring-conversions are NOT a good sales feature)---and it is too bad that the electronic air suspension was gutted. 1993 is the last year of the true pure-British Land Rover. In 1994, the Teutons raided Solihull, then in 1996 Ford ganged up (And now Fords are looking like Land Rovers). The Long Wheel Base is a very comfortable ride. There is something very classic about the last British-owned year of the hard-dash County LWB: The last stage of Charles Spensor King's (Nephew of Land Rover's Wilks brothers) iconic automobile design.

On 12/5/12 at 44,787 miles all four of the wheel bearings were replaced at Land Rover of San Antonio, part of the Cavender auto group. I heard a roaring noise and they found all four hub bearing assemblies needed to be replaced. The cost was $2,231.62 . I appealed to them that my wife drives this car, to and from work,then to the stores. I called the parent company and they paid $1,000.00 of my bill.
On 12/20/13 at 61,100 miles I drove my wife's car and heard the rear end making noise again. I thought perhaps it was the tires I purchased at Sears. The tires were good but they had two mechanics confirm it was the rear bearings.
I went directly to Land Rover of San Antonio and they said they only warranty the work for one year and that I am 15 days over. I told them they are either useing defective parts or do not know what they are doing. They also told me to go and call Land Rover of America myself and see if they will help.
Also last week, while closing the sunroof the right guide bar fell off . The cost of repair, $565.00 My 53 year old wife only drives to and from work on the interstate and to the stores. This car has never been off the pavement.
My question, how long should sealed wheel bearings last?

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 only had the car for a few weeks and bought it as is, knowing that the check engine light was an issue. The tailights and and most parts just plug in and are fairly simple for a female to repair. My problem is not really with the car but with Land Rover, Dallas - TX. I have taken the car to two State Inspection places where the vehicle was diagnosed and both indicated that Code PO171 (System Too Lean Bank 1)and PO174 (System Too Lean Bank 2)are related to the O2 Sensor and a Vacume Hose.

The first shop inspected the vehicle and said it was a good buy, even with the check engine light, so I bought it. The second shop, changed my oil and lower brake light assembly and inspected the check engine light. In each case, the car was on its way to recovery with only the check engine light as an issue. I then took it to Land Rover Dallas as I wanted a professional opinion from the manufacturers of the vehicle and had their 5 points diagnostics performed - the report stated everything on the vehicle was good even the brake light(s). But on a different report, then indicated the check engine light was related to an intake manifold where the valve was not shutting properly. Their price was approximately $2500.00 to repair the vehicle.

When I had Land Rover go back and check on the upper brake light to ensure it was working, Land Rover broke the functioning brake light assemblies and caused a blinker light malfunction by not putting the bulbs in properly. And then attempted to get me to buy new parts and service for the items they broke.

What happens when Land Rover takes apart my original functional vehicle and it falls apart because it did not need new motors, or other parts that belong to the intake manifold? Will Land Rover tell me I need a Mass Air Flow Sensor and an O2 Sensor then?

Is there a Land Rover mechanic in Dallas, TX that actually knows how to fix the vehicle and can be trusted to not lie about the fix to sell the most expensive parts?
