2005 Land Rover LR3 HSE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
Transmission failure, suspension failure, rear differential replaced, water in front head lamp, water leaking into cabin from sunroof, water collecting in floor boards, e-brake failure, right rear break 'shattered', leaking oil from oil filter connection, recalled gas tank, faulty coolant indicator. That's 12 issues in a little over a year of ownership, and there are other smaller issues as well. If my LR3 qualified for the Lemon Law (under 15k in mileage) I'd return it. Given previous issues with the Discovery I would not spend money on a Land Rover again. The quality is just not there. At this moment it's being fixed again, then it will be traded in, not for another LR.
When it runs, it rides nice. Lots of gadgets (with no quality control).
Better quality control. It's just not qc'd by Landrover very well. Too many problems, not dependable. Although it's a big car with adequate airbag protection I don't put my kids in this car, too many serious problems (transmission, suspension, etc).
