#14 of 22 is this thing a lemon?

it sounds like these ignition problems are pretty serious. Anyone know if these are just isolated cases, or is there a recall in the works etc? I dont want to buy a vehicle that will be in the shop 6 times a year.

I have to admit there have been no repeats and no other issues since. I think my greatest dis-appointment was the dealer attitude about the problem.. It was total apathy, not once did any one express regret, or apologize. It was a let down from the way I expected to be treated.

What's the dealership or where is it located? I'd rather avoid a dealership that has that type of attitude when I buy an LR2 which I'm 99% convinced I'm about to do. Thanks.

edog, did they fix the problem? Did they understand the problem when you brought them the car? I always give my dealer extra points when they can fix a problem that I bring to them. Unless, and until, my dealer can't or won't fix a problem, I always give them the benefit of the doubt, knowing that MY attitude will reflect back on me each and every time.
I own two LR's, the LR2 and the Range Rover Supercharged. Had the "hot start" problem, which disappeared when the software update was loaded. We just ordered a new Range Rover Supercharged, and have our sights set on the Land Rover bio-fuel version when they launch it.

Having the same problem with a 2002 Land Rover, so problem has been around longer than the 2008. Won't start intermittently until motor cools off. Car is at mechanic right now; saw a blog about pressing accelerator before turning key to start and that seems to help one owner. Another owner had sensors replaced, but did not fix problem. Sounds as if it is fuel related.

The LR2 doesn't share a single component with a 2002 Land Rover. In fact the LR2 is mostly Volvo in the engine/ignition components.

Every once in a while the fob will not connect with the module. The fob unlocks the doors, but will do nothing else. I put the fob in the chimes don't come on, the signals don't work, the windows don't go down and the clock doesn't come on. At one time if you put the fob in and took it out a few times it would work, the last time that it did this I had to manually lock and unlock the doors with the key. Could this be a security problem? Have had it to the dealer but they could not duplicate the problem.
