EXCERPT FROM BLOG

We have had a similar experience except my husband was working for Land Rover and had to resign because he could no longer sell them to other people when we have an unsafe and undriveable car ( where the power steering and power brakes failed at the same time) which has spent 20 of its first 53 days undriveable and in the service centre. All that servicing doesnt include the issue that still remains with the issue mentioned above. Please can u give us some guidance on how to exert pressure as all our efforts, thus far, are falling on deaf ears. We dont want a replacement as we no longer trust them. They tried to blame us when the clutch disintegrated after only 4000kms even though we had brought it in 3 times about the clutch smell only to be told that Land Rover in England had said that this was normal for the manual transmission land rover discovery 3. We cant sell this vehicle and we cant drive this vehicle as who knows when the steering and power brakes will fails again. It is only an intermitent problem . LR admitted their top engineer was drving the manual for the same reason yet now they tell us it didnt happen at all
Have you any advise? We bought ours in Melbourne Australia at ULR

Horrific stuff

Do you realise you are in great danger of being labeled a TROLL??????

This thread is about Landrover problems, the reason for it is , to highlight the danger and unreliability of them , this being particularly important to us , having boats to tow, and I am hoping by posting the truth, and these various links people will decide for themselves,

Keep the insults coming , it wont deflect from these flawed 4x4 s

The thread is about Land Rover problems because YOU started it. Funnily enough those of us WITH Land Rovers don't seem to find them "DANGEROUS OR FLAWED"

Why do you take it upon yourself to attack Land Rovers so much?

Normally you come over as quite rational - if you can't see this fixation of yours as being a problem then you REALLY need help!!!

Not a flipping clue - just some sort of bling Jap SUV the Yanks buy.

Just typed Nissan and Problems into Google. Never again though - unlike Gavin I can think of better things to do.

We took a Touareg on a short section of the Roman road but decided to leave Gap road in the Beacons well alone. The Discovery romped them quite easily.

Which Toureg was it - the V10 - a mate has had a few of them lent to his company now and they ARE lovely on road but that's about it. Still want to see that engine in a RIB though!!!

Having driven both extensively on various off-road surfaces, gradients and in a variety of conditions I'm afraid it is.

Matter of opinion - you are welcome to join me for a foray across the Brecon Beacons anytime you like - quite how you will drive home again on buckled wheels and flat tyres is beyond me however.
