Car blacks out stall while driving after clicking sound on right side of car
For two years this car as had numerous episodes of while driving completely shutting down with no advanced warning and at various speeds. I have driven on warm, cold, wet and dry days when this has occurred. Most recently i was driving on a main street when the car just shut down and was almost hit from behind. The car has been in for service many times with no resolution, they say they can not duplicate the problem. This is a dangerous and unsafe automobile and i am lucky that the car behind me was able to avoid the collision. I am afraid to drive this car, luck was on my side this last time, i could have been injured or worse. Besides the shutting down this car has had so many electrical/computer issues and always needs software updates which don't really fix the problems and sometimes cause other issues to occur. (ie, the infotanment center, the bluetooth, the cameras, the media, the navigation, the access height moves while driving, the list is endless. ) since september 2018 this car has been in the dealership with many issues. Again, this car is dangerous and unsafe.
While driving the car it just stopped. Engine shut off and left me stranded. Crank is damaged and i was told i need a new engine. Land rover will not replace the engine under warranty. Said i need to pay for out of pocket. Apparently there is a recall for my year, make and model vehicle for this same issue. Land rover claims my vin is not part of the recall.
The incident happened on freeway. I was driving my car at the speed of 60 -65, all of a sudden the car started slowing down and i pulled over immediately. As soon as i pulled over i could see the smoke coming out of the hood. So immediately got out of the car and started to contact roadside assistance but while in the process of contacting roadside assistance within couple mins the car started catching fire from the hood side then i panicked and called 911. Thanks to the fire service department! They came by and put out the fire. Omg! My whole car except the rear truck was burnt. If i was inside the car for couple more mins i would not be alive to write this report. It was very scary and traumatizing! I don? T have any clue how this one happened all of a sudden and i could not believe my eyes watching the car catching fire. I strongly feel that i got a bad apple. In my opinion it looked like something was wrong under the hood as the smoke came from the hood. There was no accident involved and a car catching fire on its own is uncommon. This makes me anxious and scared.
Vehicle was in motion at 65 miles per hour on a major highway. Within a few minutes of warning indicators showing that the vehicle's charging system was not functioning, the car began to jolt and loose power. The vehicle lost all power within a minute. Fluid was leaking from the vehicle. Hazard lights were not functioning. The vehicle was towed. The initial diagnosis was a failed pulley, requiring that the engine be replaced.
ON SEPTEMBER 13, 2019, MY WIFE AND 2 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER PULLED INTO OUR DRIVEWAY IN OUR 2019 Range Rover Velar. SHORTLY BEFORE PULLING INTO THE DRIVEWAY, THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON AND A COOLANT ALERT WENT OFF. THE CAR THEN BURST INTO FLAMES WHILE PARKED IN OUR DRIVEWAY. MY WIFE QUICKLY GOT OUR DAUGHTER OUT OF HER CAR SEAT AND RAN ACROSS THE STREET TO CALL 911. JUST AS SHE GOT TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STREET, THE CAR EXPLODED. SEE ATTACHED PICTURES. *PLEASE NOTE: THIS FORM WAS FILLED OUT ON BEHALF OF OWNER BY COUNSEL.
The software of the car has a lot of bugs. The displays on the center console turns off , the radio connection comes and go and this is in nyc. A friend had his 2015 bmw to same radio station as my car and they were right next to each other. I was not getting any signal while his was playing. The car fogs and makes it very hard to see and drive. I had to take the car in for service 4 times in one due to this and software issue.
In cold temperatures the windows fog up to the extent they start dripping. The defrost does little to solve the issue. It takes anywhere from 10-30 minutes depending upon the temperature.
I started having trouble with my suv the engine light turned on and then the truck would start shacking out of the no where and turn off all of a suden, this happened to me several times, i took it to its dealer and my truck was at the dealer for a little over a month. Since thats happened i honestly dont feel comfertable now.
When driving in cold external conditions, existing defrost system does not adequately clear the side windows (front and rear driver and passenger) even after 2018 recall and stated "fix". Max defrost capability does not clear the windows. Windows are completely fogged up making it impossible to have visibility to safely change lanes. Visibility is severely impaired making it a safety issue. Service technicians claim that it is fixed when it is not fixed.
1. Car windows do not defrost when driving in cold weather. Especially the side windows greatly effecting visibility if having to turn or change lanes 2. Lower electrical panel goes out randomly while driving. This makes you unable to regulate temperature or change driving type.

When the front windshield fogs up in the mornings/night, the defogger ventilation just below the front windshield, does not totally clear the condensation, leaving behind a big patch of condensation that obstructs clear visibility. Also, i am facing a major problem with the media screens and entertainment system since the time i bought the car. While operating the car,the two media screens turn off from time to time. Some days, only the media player and bluetooth connectivity does not work. From time to time, when i connect my phones (iphone x and iphone xs) via usb cable, the phone is not detected. This is not always the case, but it happens more often than i imagined.
When trying to drive my wife? S vehicle the gauges for speed, tachometer, vehicle status etc turn off. The two touch screens also turn off so cannot control any climate, radio, drive settings etc. It will come on intermittently and turn back off without warning. The car still operates but without any instrumentation. Unknown how this affects safety features such as airbags. When my wife drives it is less intermittent but happens from time to time. If i attempt to start the car sometimes it won? T even turn on but after a couple minutes i can get it to start. It is push button. Have tried both set of keys.
