Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

2005 Land Rover LR3 Owner Comments

problem #3

Jun 112007

LR3 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,500 miles


Tires were unevenly worn at the 7500 mi. Check. The dealer replaced all four tires. The new tires were again worn by the 15,000 mi. Check and they had been rotated in between the two periodic checks. This time, Land Rover said they would only replace two tires because of the mileage on the car. I explained that the tires only had 7500 mi. On them, but Land Rover said tires aren't covered as it was normal wear and tear. I told them there was nothing normal about replacing tires with this frequency and that the worn tires represented a symptom, not a problem. My own dealer was going to replace all four tires. We bought two LR3',within one year, but I wa sbegging them to identify the source of the issue before I started chewing up the third set. I am surprised this issue wasn't disclosed before I bought my car. I purchased a 2005 leftove" in the beginning of 2006, long after the tire issue was identified. I am also experiencing problems with hesitation on acceleration. It has been at the shop twice to have that problem corrected without success. I feel cheated. It wa S an expensive car and one that should not require this level of maintenance so early into ownership.

LR3 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 16,000 miles
The contact owns a 2005 Land Rover LR3. The contact stated that all four tires have extreme inside wear. While driving 55 mph, she felt a vibration, looked under the vehicle, and noticed that the tires looked completely worn. The contact took the vehicle to a tire store and was informed that her tires were so bad, that the vehicle should not be driven. The vehicle was towed to the dealer who stated that this is very unusual because the vehicle only has 15,000 miles. The dealer stated that the failure was due to the alignment on the vehicle. The current and failure mileages were 16,000.
