#1122 of 1131 Re: Brake pads on LR2 (15k miles) - lease [jcmanhattan]
Oct 19, 2009 (8:14 am)
I've had my LR2 for 19 months, have nearly 24k miles and have never had the dealership mention new pads and it's been to the shop three times for routine maintenance. I love the vehicle and have had only minor electrical issues that have not posed any problems. The only major problem I've had was a complete loss of power steering due to a leaky hose that resulted in a drained power steering system. Landrover picked up the vehicle, replaced the pump and fluid and got me back on the road within 24 hours. I'd find another dealership and report this one to Land Rover Corporate HQ.

I have an 09 RR Sport with the 20" Stormer Rims (same ones they put on the super charged), and I have had a ton of vibration issues with the steering. Actually, you feel the vibration throughout the whole car. If anyone has been able to resolve this, PLEASE let me know. It is literally driving me nuts. I start feeling it around 50 MPH or so and it does not go away. I have brought the truck in for tire balancing 4 times at 3 different places, tried new tires, and it still vibrates.
The other issue I have is the seat slides. Supposedly Land Rover has had this issue with the Sport since 08 models and has not formally fixed the problem. The dealer tells you to bring the car in and they tighten some linkage in the seat and it lasts about a couple of months and then you bring it back again.
You would think with a $60k+ car you would not have these issues. If anyone has had these problems, please let me know. I am ready to start with the Lemon Laws.

It was Land Rover of Palm Beach. They were offering $10K off all previous year cars at the time, but I think it was this dealer's manager/owner who did this, rather than Land Rover in general. Good luck!
#1127 of 1131 LR2 2008-HELP w Reliability
Jan 03, 2011 (5:37 pm)
I am very interested in purchasing a 2008 LR2 w about 26,000 miles on it. The warranty goes for about another year or to 50,000 miles. I am interested in purchasing addl miles/years, but am offered only to 60,000 miles at additional 4 years, cost $2600.00 plus taxes.
I do not plan on putting a lot of mileage on the car. I am concerned about the electric system mostly. This does not have satelite radio or navigation. Any and all comments welcome.
Btw, I live in an area where in the winter the off-road capabilities will be used just going up my driveway

I have driven the LR's on loaner when my truck is in for repairs (which is often) and quite frankly, the drive on the LRs is worse than the Sport. I found a lot of play in the steering and there is a good amount of vibration. Keep in mind these have been loaners I have driven, but wanted to let you know my experiences with them. The $2,600 is a lot of money, but these cars are known to be costly to repair. Its a trade-off. Also be weary as to who is backing the warranty. If it is not Range Rover, I would not even bother getting it. I thought the certified pre-owned only cost $2,000 for the certification/warranty. This sounds like a third party and when your car breaks, these guys are going to be difficult to deal with. As a side note, the other day a tow truck guy broke my suspension on my rear wheeel by jacking it up incorrectly and it cost $1,300 to repair.
#1131 of 1131 Burning oil between scheduled oil changes
Mar 05, 2012 (12:09 pm)
We have sent our 2008 LR2 into the LR dealer 3 times now for the same problem: it is burning oil like crazy (1.5 quarts in 3,000 miles) with no signs of leaks, spills or cracks. The customer service rep told me that she has a call into HQ, but LR has said that it is normal for an LR2 to burn a quart every 1,000 miles. I'm not a mechanic, but I know this is a ridiculous amount of oil and it sounds like an excuse to get out of anything they may need to do to fix it properly. Can anyone give me any advice or direction? Please?
