Rear started making grinding noise when accelerating and turning to the left or right. I took it to the dealership, they said that they did not hear the noise and I may need to wait until it gets worse, numerous online complaints of a faulty design for the differential - Land Rover told me that they have replaced 2 differentials in last couple of months and if that is what is wrong with my vehicle it could potentially lock up while I'm driving and could cause an accident. Will you please look into why Land Rover has not done a recall ? thank you very much, laurie.....updated 10/19/15

Went in for regular oil change: Multi point inspection revealed "rear haldex leaking badly need price and fluid". dealer says "read differential failure: Needs to be replaced". dealer quoted cost for the replacement: $5199 + labor charge. Review of several Land Rover forums shows this is an ongoing issue dating back to 2011, one particular forum "landroversonly.com" has 160 complaints on this very particular issues. The NHTSA website has 46 complaints (majority of them regarding this issue. Requesting immediate attention to hold Land Rover/dealership accountable for this known defective part.
