Consumers have filed a total of 30 complaints related to Land Rover FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM.
I have not been able to fill the gas tank completely, and the pump shuts off multiple times during the refuel process every time i pump gas. I have tried different angles, different gas stations, tried to refuel slowly but it stops multiple times.
This vehicle loses power while operating at any speed. While going 70mph out of nowhere it goes down to 40 within seconds with zero warning and 3 accidents have almost happened. It was "fixed" once by a local land rover dealer but has happened 3 times since. The "d" for the drive gear flashes red when this happens, it appears the vehicle is going into lymp mode and is absolutely unsafe to drive.
The car basically shut down while running. It started to shake and than just powered down, twice. According to the dealership there is an issue with the "purge system" they old me the vehicle was released to early. There is an issue with the software and management system. The car is unsafe to drive. When the car powered down i was at a red light inching forward, the car started to shake and the red battery light came on. I turned everything off and was able to move forward but only slightly and the car powered down again ( i also caused a small accident behind me) the car always felt like it was working hard to accelerate and felt like it was "sticking". In speaking with the service team at range rover the velar in general has had issues and the service department cant keep up. The car isn't safe and i've been told it may need to go back in even after the repair.
I was driving on the highway going approximately the speed limit of 75 mph when all the sudden the car began making a knocking noise & started losing power and rapidly decelerating out of my control. My rpms began running 7k+ and i needed to jam down on the gas pedal in order to try and maintain speed and avoid an accident, which worked for a second and actually allowed me to gain back speed. However, with the gas all the way down it only kept speed for a short period until the check engine light popped on and i began dropping down speed again. I could not maintain speed. I immediately changed to the right lane and was able to pull over at a rest stop. I read the manual, and according to the warning transmission signal which displayed, my car may be driven but performance may be reduced and i should immediately take it into a dealer, which i did. I was later told by an authorized dealer that? My turbo had blown? With cracks along with a destroyed solenoid and other parts relating to the speed of my car. It currently has under 80k miles and is in the repair shop as we speak. It has had routine maintenance and just underwent service care (replaced oil/ oil filter, transmission fluid , etc) less than 2 months ago. The total estimated repair cost relating to this safety concern is roughly $5,200 usd from an authorized dealer (a new turbo, solenoid, labor, etc).
When driving the vehicle, the fuel gauge came on, indicating the fuel level is low and illuminates the warning lamp, however the tank actually has more fuel (full tank of fuel).
