Get used to driving a loaner

2018 Land Rover Discovery HSE Td6 4dr SUV 4WD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 8A)

We've owned Land Rover products for nearly 20 years, and 5 years ago we left for Toyota (we purchased a 4runner and a Lexus SUV) because the frustrations of owning a Land Rover were interrupting our life (the service manager and Land Rover and I used to joke, that I should park the cars at the dealership, because they spent more time in the shop than in my garage). After, NEVER having any issues with Toyota or Lexus for 4-years, we made the decision to go back to Land Rover and give the company the benefit of the doubt and purchased a 2018 Discovery (new from dealer) and 2018 Range Rover Sport (new from dealer) and both in cash. So, after racking up 7,000 miles and 5 months, the Discovery has been in the shop 18 days, major brake issues (sticking), software issues, and AEB issues. The Range Rover Sport is having the brake issues and software issues and has enjoyed about 8 days in the shop. We have serious mixed emotions, the Land Rover products are awesome in the snow, off-road and as daily haulers. But, once again I am sitting on two vehicles that have lost a significant amount of their value and I'm back and forth to the service facility. The Dealership has been super responsive and helpful while the work on a DFT (Dealer Facilitated Trade) for the Discovery (but no promises). Moral of our story will be to drive these for another 3 years, and trade them in for Ford, Toyota (Lexus) or Jeep. The moral of the story for you is simple, don't buy a Land Rover product, this is our recommendation after driving them on/off for 20-years.

Don't ever buy a Land Rover

We bought a brand new 2018 car from Land Rover. Within 30 days it was in the shop for repair. Over the next 90 days it was sent back for repair 5 more times. They told us it was a factory defect, and then over the next 3 months we were given a old, used, late model Land Rover while they came up with some "options" for us. All while we continued to make monthly payments on a $92,000 car. They finally got back to us and informed us that we could accept a lesser vehicle then we had purchased. Upon hearing this news, we simply asked to get out of the deal. They then said we would have to pay nearly $5,000 to get out of the deal. This seems insane to me so I contacted the corporate office and they told us "that's their policy". I am now paying $5000 to get out of this nightmare. From top to bottom Land Rover is a disgusting corporation, with terrible vehicles, and even worse customer service. I simply plead with anyone considering a Land Rover, that they hear my warning. DON'T BUY A LAND ROVER! Nn

Nice styling and features, terrible build quality

Pros: Nice, clean modern upscale interior. Light grey leather seats, dash, console, and headliner are beautiful and clean surprisingly very easily. Lots of safety features. Drives well in the snow and bad weather. Feels like a tank. Good space and nice size third row. Abundant and clever storage spaces throughout. Great sounding stereo, when you can get it to work. Heated windshield is great. Auto high beam headlights are fantastic. Cons: The infotainment system is a constant source of frustration. Sometimes it hooks up to my phone, sometimes it won’t recognize my phone is there at all during the entire drive no matter how many ways I try to get it to find it. Sometimes it recognizes my phone for phone calls through the car, but will not recognize it to play music through the vehicle. Sometimes Apple Car Play works, sometimes it doesn’t. We have had the 2019 Land Rover Discovery HSE for almost 2 years. We’ve had to take it in for service at least 7 times for various issues. Right after I bought it I was driving through a heavy Colorado snow storm with my mom and daughter in the vehicle. My mom noticed water dripping on her. We couldn’t determine where it came from and I took it in to the dealer and they checked it and said there was nothing wrong. Then when I took it through a car wash for the first time water came pouring in around the edge of the windshield, which the dealer later admitted wasn’t sealed properly. They fixed that. Then there was a consistent extremely loud air noise coming from the drivers window. That was also checked and I was again told nothing was wrong. I took it in two more times and they finally replaced the entire stripping around the door which mostly addressed the issue. Then the storage compartment on the center console in the second row broke and wouldn’t open. They replaced that. Then the hidden storage compartment in the driver’s center console would never really open properly. After 2 service appointments they fixed that. The cover to the third row sunroof rattled. We took it back in and they fixed that. One of the side panel covers in the cargo area in the back was missing a clip so it protruded into the cargo area. It took us taking it in 3 times for various issues for them to order the part and fix that. Immediately after we bought the vehicle I noticed that it felt like I had to wrestle with the wheel, which was extremely heavy, to keep the vehicle centered in the lane. I asked the Land Rover dealer to check the alignment and steering and they said there was nothing wrong with it. I asked them to check it again on multiple occasions as we had the vehicle in for other fixes and for regular service. I was always told nothing was wrong. Then after having the vehicle for only around a year I was told the tires needed to be replaced because they had worn unevenly because the vehicle was out of alignment. What a frustrating experience after not being listened to and then having to pay $1300 out of my pocket to replace the tires and have the vehicle aligned properly (which I did not do at the dealership). Second row center headrest when up makes visibility through the rear window very bad and it’s hard for kids to fold down (you kind of have to put your body weight into pushing the button to fold it down) - Land Rover should have a control for the driver to lower that headrest because you never remember it’s up until you start driving. Ultimately this vehicle is a good idea in concept but the quality of the build and parts are very low and unreliable. For a $70k vehicle you expect more. I will never buy another Land Rover again and will soon be trading it in for a BMW X5.

Love the car. Hate the glitches

Great mileage. Great third row seating. Been in the shop over 60 days since I owned it (22 months). First windshield leaked. . . took about a month to get a replacement that wasn't broken. Now in the shop for the FOURTH time for "Engine Oil Critically Low" warning on dash. Oil has never been low when checked. Sensors have been replaced to no avail. Dealership has been terrific, provided great loaners and service, but I am tired of dealing with this error. Also entertainment and navigation are slow and not intuitive to use. Rear backup camera great. 360 degree view is not 100% accurate, and cannot be displayed simultaneously with rear view.

Problem after problem. After at least 15 visits to the dealer my interior computer is still not working correctly. If it dose its slow, unresponsive and just down right antiquated. I feel like Im driving an outdated Iphone that is no longer supported. After 2 years Im trying to trade it in and the resale value is very low. Your better off spending your money on another option.
