cxvargas, service can be a hit or miss thing. I used to service my Rover at a very well know (in the area at least) dealership. Although they were very polite, the quality of the work was hit or miss. Now I go to the new dealership in the area and they are really awesome in all regards. I'd suggest you solicit opinions from your local LR owners' club and see what they say. I've had three Rovers that of which is my 2006 LR3 and of all those trucks, the LR3 seems to have the least issues. Good luck and welcome to the world of Land Rover.

I know some have put the Nitto 285/65 18's on the LR3, but has anyone tried the same size BFG's?

For example: In the San Diego area We only have LR Miramar. I have purchased two LR vehicles (01 disco and 06 LR3) and both from LR Mission Viejo. I drive the 60 miles to Land Rover Mission Viejo because of the service. Its worth it to do your homework, because on these vehicles it will make the difference. Find the most knowledgeable sales person and I would ask to speak to the lead service person and ask tough questions as well during the sales process. LR MV has been great on service and warranty issues so far. There are a few sales people there who really know LR and the service guys have been fair and never challenged me on requested repairs. Its also always good to find the local independant Rover service center because the rights techs can be real helpful about your needs post warranty. If there is a good independant service center in your area those folks may have a good recommendation on which dealer to go to. I walked up to people with LRs in parking lots etc and asked them their experiences to get advice because the local LR dealer appears to be active in the local club (i think the meetings are there!) so I didnt think I would get unbiased advice

I saw that General is going to start producing the Grabber AT2 in the 255/60 r18 this fall. They already make this tire in other sizes and the reviews on tirerack from Disco owners are very good. The tire appears to be what many of us have been hoping for....
#3937 of 4548 brake pad replacement
Sep 18, 2006 (4:25 pm)
I have 05 RR with only 28k miles on it and the BRAKE light lit up on the dash. Dealer told me that I need to replace the brake pads, about $650. Is this normal for RR? I had BMWs before include X5 and brake pads were good for 40K and beyond. I do realize that RR is much heavier. How about the price? Can I have my mechanic in a local shop to do it for half of the price, even though IT IS a leased car? Thanks for any input.

#3939 of 4548 Middle row center seat belt locking problem
Sep 19, 2006 (1:09 pm)
When I fold down the center seat in the middle row, the seat belt locks up and does not allow me to unfold the seat.
Anyone know what to do about this? Is this a common problem?

What do you mean by 'locks up'?
Also, do you mean folded up in just the first position or completely down into flat-mode?
The only time I have had this happen is when I did not return the seat from flat mode completely, and after I pulled it up hard, it locked properly, then I could unfold it..
Other than just getting use to it, I have no issues with mine so far - only put it down to check it out though - I haven't had to opportunity to actually use all that space yet.

Now my 2005 LR3 has an apparent wiring fault or shortcircuit, again... the left rear speaker constantly crackles very loudly and the "left rear door open" warning is on (no, it isn't open). If I turn off the light above my head, the warning and crackling stop.
Car is in the shop - has been for three days and I just got back from the USA to find that Budds have not delivered it back.. so I shall be takiong taxis tomorrow (and for heaven knows how long). Has anyone had similar faults?
