In the shop ALL the time

I loved this vehicle when I got it. But repairs are INSANELY expensive and it's in the shop ALL the time. I was just given an $11K estimate for resolving a diesel engine air filter for a vehicle that has only 60K miles on it. That's after spending +$3K to change the brakes.

Excellent SUV no issues

Loved the SUV. Only had one issue with the radio. Comfortable and mechanically perfect. Excellent ride, powerful engine, quiet cabin, great features. Loved the car!!!

Worst Car- Can’t wait for my lease to end!

I was so excited about upgrading from Lexus to Land Rover. I currently lease a 2018 LR HSE Diesel. It is hands down the worst car I’ve even owned maintenance wise. The engine crapped out on me at 19k miles and they had to put a band new Diesel a engine in it. Luckily it was covers by warranty. The reliability of the technology is so poor. Sometimes my main screen will just be black, so no air, no radio. You have to stop the car, turn it off, get out lock it, then allow it to reset before trying again. Dealer told me it was needing updates when this happened. Well, it’s had 3 updates in 1.5 years and it’s not an easy task. The dealer needs it for a day. When driving the front warning will random alert with nothing ahead, key fobs eat through batteries. I now have 21k on the car and the car shakes when I brake- which means it needs new pads/roaters. It’s also eating through tires so I will need tires before the lease ends to pass inspection. The only thing I have going for me is that it is still under warranty, But it has lived at the dealer being in the shop so many times. Other than being a pretty car, is the biggest money pit ever. First and LAST LR I will ever own!

great car but has many problems

the discovery has been a great car for me and my family. the only thing bad was reliability which is terrible. i was very lucky to not have much problems on my HSE Luxury. otherwise the car was very comfortable, but where we live there are a ton of these, which drops the value. but if you want to get into the land rover brand, this is your best bet. and service was great.

I owned an SE. Not to pleased about it.

The style is ok. I owned an LR4 HSE before this one. This ride is smoother than the LR4. However the lighting and steering sucks.

Issues with All New Disco

Having intermittent electronic Issues eg memory seat and steering wheel does not always go back to the memory position. The InTouch Control app continually forgets my password and has to be re-entered every few days. An awful LOUD clunking noise from rear of the car at low speed ..appears to be the auto brake coming on and off even before I have stopped. Service told me that is normal operation..I beg to differ. Something isn't right here

Water leaks

Land Rover has had my vehicle for 3 months to fix this issue. When it rains it’s pouring in the car. We are the first owners and the customer service at the dealership is horrible.

Had the car 3 months. Been in shop twice

Dont waste your money. My Ford Escape Titanium was a better car. Regretting the trade in. The car is cheaply made and comes with all kinds of expensive computer updates. If you.want to drive it for status, just be prepared to be in a rental the majority of the time.

Worst car I've ever owned

The car is constantly at the dealership for repairs and dealership is horrible to work with. I am trying to get this vehicle classified as a Lemon. Here are the issues we've had in the past 12 mos. -Audio just quits working. Hands free is 50/50 if it works. We've had 3 software upgrades now. -Antifreeze leak. Had waterpump replaced at 4000miles -Roof leaks. Took dealership 4 weeks to figure it out -Heat doesn't work. Seriously blows cold air. We have to wear parkas while driving in the winter -AC blows water out the vents. Not just a little condensation, actual water running out of vents. So far, dealership has been unsuccessful and repairing the heater issue and the AC issues. I would trade it in on a Range Rover or something else, but the dealership sucks so bad I don't want another vehicle from them. Waiting to see if the Lemon Law is going to work....

Love my Land Rover

I love the color, the body style and the value fir my money. The only miss is that there is not XM radio factory installed.
