Transmission & Radiator Issues Beware
By Mpanico2004RR on


2004 Land Rover Range Rover HSE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


For anyone buying a pre owned 2003-2005 Range Rover HSE, make sure that the radiator issues in the past have been corrected. They fail and the electronic thermostat does not sense the overheating. Thus, the radiator fails and the transmission overheats with zero warning. Over time, the tranny 50K on will eventually fail and cost you thousands to repair. We are a loyal RR family owned 2 and one saved our friends life in a head on accident. But, Land Rover North America has zero loyalty back after your cars warranty expires. Even though you may have had chronic complaints about issues they can not resolve, after that warranty expires and things eventually fail, they say sorry. Terrible!
