Don't waste time. Your vehicle will be obsolete in no time

published

A stupid primitive money hungry company who would rather make their loyal fan base purchase new vehicles than make their existing ones upgradeable. I have a my12 discovery 4 and my sat nav is obsolete. Cannot upgrade it anywhere. Funnily enough i can still find uograde discs for '05 onwards rr vogue... and sport... Buy a jeep instead don't waste your time with these elitists. Not happy!!!

Worst car, Landrover customer service & dealership I have ever experienced

published

Bought in 2017 & it’s now 2021 & we are still having problems. It’s already on its 2nd engine & only a few days ago it broke down again. Possibly a 3rd engine. To date it’s been a terrible experience from dealership & Landrover Aus. I will hold back on this occasion to see if any of them come good on this most recent issue. Standby for an update but we are not confident that any of them will come through for us, Landrover have already disputed the extended warranty even though the warranty is with Alliance & they have confirmed we are covered?

Beautiful drive but full of issues

published

My Apple car okay has never really worked in my 2019 Disco. The car itself is lovely to drive but the issues I have had are far too many. I cannot get the Apple car play fixed they seem unable to rectify the issue. I am so dissapointed with the cost of the car to have had so many issues with it. Never buy one again and won’t own it much longer. Very very upset

The right to repair: which brands are making it easier for you to fix their products?

The right to repair movement in Australia is calling for companies to make it easier for their products to be repaired. Here are some electronics and appliance manufacturers who are starting to listen and make it more feasible for consumers to repair, rather than replace, their items.

Legend Discovery 4

published

People always said LR had lots of issues or problems, but my experiences with LR4 is quite good. I purchased my LR4 brand new from Purnell Land Rover back in 2015. Served my family for almost 6 years, and never had any issues. Super comfort. And thge TDV6 engine is well tuned and bullet proof if you well maintained.

Expensive Lemon!

published

I bought Disco 5 in 2017,brand new with 3 years manufacturer and 2 years extended warranty.
The problems started within few months and the car was sent for suspension issues and reversing camera fault 5 times!!!!. Been to fair trading and that was a waste. Now the roof has started to leak and i booked for a service check and was informed that i may have to leave the car for few days and " all the loan cars were sold " so no loan car,just UBER vouchers.
What a joke.
Like P T Barnum said "There's a sucker born every minute"
Im the sucker and i hope no one else falls for this scam. Is there no legal action against Landrover?

Never buy

published

Can't believe how Land Rover Australia can sell a car with a known engine failure. I have had two major failures after buying within 13000Km. Full air suspension failure and engine balance shaft replacement. I only came to know recently the balance shaft issue is a known issue with some LR diesel engines and that starts with a whining noise and can stop the car while driving. Many cars are not get fixed by the shaft replacement alone eventually required engine replacement.
It's a comfortable car when it's problem free. But can stop your trip anytime.
Search LR Balance shaft on internet for more info.

Best car I've ever owned.

published

I've owned 6 other 4WDs (Pajero, X-Trail, Triton (2), Hi-lux, & D-Max) and the Discovery 5 is in a class above. Unfortunately, so is the price compared to the others - but it is worth it! We tow a 3200kg caravan and this is the best tow vehicle we've ever had. The 4WD capability is awesome with all the electronics and rear diff lock. Only downside is the need to add AdBlue - it's a pain, and it needs heaps when towing. If you don't tow, don't worry.

I'm not sure what that might involve or whether we could find enough owners to make it feasible. But ... maybe it's a plan if more disgruntled owners turn up.

Discovery 2 (1999-2004)

Hi guys, looking at purchasing a 2002 4l V8 series 2 discovery. It's been very well looked after with a few added accessories which is perfect for camping and 4x4ing but the whole head gasket issue on these engines is really bothering me. How concerned should I be, it's got 180000kms auto.
