The emissions light came on while driving in town. Upon diagnostic testing, it was the turbo charger that went out. Computer read out was "turbo boost building up pressure". The mileage was at 47,000 miles only. I had to replace it and replacement was $4825 new or $3661 for remanufactured. This is something that has to be replaced or would further damage the engine. The printout on my receipt read "cracked exhaust manifold (turbo), internal fault solenoid replaced turbo/charger/exhaust manifold. Replaced wastegate solenoid. "

The reverse light on the driver's side will not illuminate when the vehicle is in reverse. I have replaced both bulbs and 5 amp fuse. I believe the issue might be with a fault in the reverse light switch. The light does not illuminate in any driving condition.

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 vehicle would accelerate normally than out of the blue. It looses power, engine light illuminating advising not to continue driving. Code advising p0299? Turbo charger? Common problem apparently mechanics advising online forums and repair ideas. Vehicle only has approximately 60,000 on it and all approved maintenance. Now they are denying major repair that is a common issue!!

THE TURBO CHARGER IN MY 2016 LR Discovery Sport IS BAD AND NOW NEEDS REPLACED, OTHERWISE THERE IS MINIMAL ACCELERATION (ACCELERATION WORSE THAN OF A SMALL COMPACT 4-CYLINDER CAR). IT IS ALSO VERY NOISY DUE TO THE BROKEN PART. IT ONLY HAS 60K MILES ON IT. LEARNED FROM A RESPECTED AUTO BODY SHOP THAT SERVICES HIGH END VEHICLES THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM.

When using keyless entry, walking up to door and opening without unlocking, the door latch won? T hold closed. Causing the door to swing freely. I? Ve had to try to lock and unlock or start and turn off my truck. After 15-30 min, it will usually latch. But there? S no concrete remedy. The first time it happened i didn? T realize it. Taking a right hand turn and my door flew open. It? S super dangerous! The first time it happened was june 6th. This has happened about 4 times in the past month. After researching the issue, i? Ve found that this is common in range rovers. Land rover hasn? T been a help. You can? T get through to their main office. The local dealership wants to charge me for diagnostic fees and repairs.

Brakes to done function properly! There is continual drag and not coasting due to brake issue. Had accident because car slide 5 car lengths would not stop. Car engine shuts off and needs to be put into park and restarts when hitting brake quickly, happens on freeway very dangerous. Had to replace all brakes at 9k miles now needs all 4 brake pads again at 15k miles. Service department will not acknowledge an issues and states this is normal wear and wants $1200 each time for brakes. Does not acknowledge that they car slides and fishtails rather than stops smoothly when quickly braking. They did not even put notes in the service invoice on what i had described. Very concerned another accident will take place not to mention the constant cost for this. I have another repair shop and car expert in writing stating that there is issues with brake system.

Seat belt issue: seat belt to the 2nd row, right door side activating with alternating red (x) and green (check mark) not able to discern that my 10 year old son was in the car. On 12/16/19, the same error occurred with my 9 year old nephew. Once he exited the car, despite no seat belt being in the slot, the alarm kept beeping saying that it was and that it needed to be addressed. Transmission: the car has been "jumpy" in terms of transmission changes since we first bought the vehicle. It has had transmission computer upgrades with the most recent in 10/19 having no effect. It now is shifting out of drive or sport while driving at various speeds on the highway. The d (if in drive) will flash and there is no acceleration capability. Both my husband and i have experienced this event and getting on and off the highway and not being able to accelerate can pose a serious safety issue. I was not able to accelerate while getting on the highway with my son and his friend which could have led to an accident with rear end involvement given that there was a car close behind me trying to accelerate as well. I am not sure if this is the same recall problem that occurred with the 2015 model but land rover has been notified of this issue and they have stated they can't find anything wrong when they do the diagnostics. On 12/13/19 i contacted land rover warwick ri due to my concerns and was told to not put any more money into the vehicle and to "get rid of it. " on 12/14/19, i notified land rover of norwell regarding transmission concerns and was told that there were no issues they were aware of. Cape cod land rover also was made aware of the transmission concerns and they were the ones that did the last computer upgrade which again did not fix the issue as described. Please assist as the safety of myself and my family is now of concern.

While sitting in park at idle rpm i heard a loud thump from the engine compartment which was followed by an electrical system warning and an engine overheat warning. I turned off the vehicle immediately and had vehicle towed to my mechanic. When care arrived at mechanics shop the crankshaft pulley literally fell off the car. Upon inspection the crankshaft pulley experienced a complete failure that resulted in total destruction of the engine. Entire engine needs to be replaced due to extensive valve/engine damage.
