My wife and I bought our LR4 used with 44k miles on it. We have had it right at a month and it has been in the shop for three of those weeks with various issues. Brakes (we read the reviews and know that they are an issue already) oil dripping from under the engine, and the air suspension gave out on us on a road trip. When we took it to the our local dealership LR Austin, they told us that the brakes were after market that there was nothing they could do. We got them looked at elsewhere and they were in fact OEM and the exact ones the dealer installs. They told us the oil leak could not be found (even when there are drops of oil in out garage) and the suspension went out, can find prob?Junk
Very pretty paper weight. With all the issues we have had the whole thing seems like junk, just can't bring myself to like it anymore.
Customer Service. My wife and I have gotten the distinct feeling that since we did not buy the vehicle from the dealership that anything that we have brought it in for seemingly is getting brushed off until our warranty goes out. We really liked the vehicle when we first got it but the customer service has swayed us from ever getting one again and suggesting one to any one of our friends. Land Rover really needs to get this in line.
This is my second LR.
Owned an 08 LR3 which was bullet proof, pretty much brought it in for scheduled services and changed the tires.
Current LR4 is at 21K, and the only 2 trips to dealer were for the first service
and for an insp. sticker.
Vehicle is refined and holds up well.
17.9 mpg. on avg.
I have two friends that have Range and they are looking into picking up a LR4.
Love our LR4, just wish I didn't have to bring it in for repairs every few weeks. Tire monitoring system keeps throwing codes, the NAV and radio goes out once in a while and then there's the windshield wipers that suddenly shut off and stay off.
I read about other people with the same issues, lets just hope Land Rover gets it figured out so we can buy another one. Otherwise, we won't do this again.
Great interior layout. Smooth ride. Feel like a million bucks driving it.
Make the second row fold easy (hardest thing to do!). Make third row electric.
Loved my previous 2005 and 2008 LR3s. This is the best of all. Smoother, much quieter, significantly more powerful. Speeding ticket within 3 hours of ownership! Outside facelift is a huge improvement, much classier looking, head/taillights, grille. Inside, overall much nicer and higher quality except a few pieces, better leather, inside of doors is a huge improvement. Miss the old headrests with the handles on them, adjustable headrests should be better, but love the old handles. Off road is amazing, love climbing boulders in this thing. No significant problems in any of the 3 LRs. Gas mileage is a little worse than previous LR3s. Sound system is improved somewhat, nav also...both are fine.
Power, smoothness, quietness. Solid, excellent quality materials. Great out on the town and more fun climbing rocks. Third row fits 6-2 adults. Keyless entry/start. Quirky looks. Reliability. Safety! At 20 mph got rear-ended by 40 mph Fit. Totaled Fit, $3k cosmetic damage to LR4. All ok.
Bring back the headrest handles! More wheel options. Lose 500 pounds. Diesel option. Modernize sound system.
Have driven 6000 miles in 5 months on all terrains and can't say enough about the comfort, utility and off road capability. The air suspension allowing the vehicle to be lowered makes getting in and out easy. Pickup with the powerful 8 cyl engine is great and one feels really safe in the LR4. Wish it had better fuel performance or the choice of a diesel engine. Otherwise nothing to complain about. Great car.
Like the fold down flat loading area, air suspension, quiet yet powerful ride, luxury interior, off road and towing capability
bring a Diesel engine as an alternative, refine the navigation system (small town roads not named) keep all else the same.
