Land Rover Range Rover Problems
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.
In severe wet conditions, water may enter the anti-lock brake system (ABS) modulator electrical connector resulting in corrosion and illumination of the ABS warning light. Our technicians tell us revised modulator ground leads are available to better seal the connector. If corrosion is found in the electrical connector the connector will need to be repaired as necessary and the new ground leads installed.
A chirping type noise may be noted from the engine area, mostly at idle. This type of noise is generally caused by a faulty drive belt idler pulley. Our technicians tell us a revised pulley is available to correct this concern. Chirping Type Noise From Engine at Idle

Land Rover Range Rover Recalls
These vehicles are being recalled because their front brake lines (hoses) may rupture causing loss of brake fluid and braking control. Loss of front braking in a vehicle reduces the ability to stop suddenly, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the front brake lines and replace both as necessary.
Thirty-six vehicles are being recalled because during the manufacturing process, the windshield on these vehicles may have been installed incorrectly. In the event of a crash, the windshield may come loose from the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury to the vehicle's occupants. Dealers will replace the windshield on these vehicles to correct this concern. The Land Rover recall number is P028.
The air bag warning light may illuminate and the passenger front air bag may not deploy as expected. Failure of the front air bag to deploy in the event of a crash increases the risk of injury.

The tranmission and transfer case seem's to go often in these cars. I also had to replace the water pump and the reservoir tank twice in less than two month.
This 4.2 liter LWB has been remarkably extremely reliable for over 140,000 miles. It has never left me stranded. Despite all the horror stories that one hears about Range Rovers. Considering how remarkable these cars are..its pretty straight forward pertaining to the engine and drive train. I would want no other 4x4 in the extremes in remote Northern Arizona....
I've owned many RR C, but the 95 has been the best! Few of the common issues, but nothing to cry over. But these rigs are not for everyone, mostly because the DEALER will kill you on repairs that a inddy shop can do for half the $. Good thing , there is tons of info on the net on how to DIY repairs.
