2005 Land Rover LR3 Owner Comments

Front differential roaring and feels like major drag anytime you are not applying gas petal. Had front differential service done and fluid was full of debris.this trucks suffered from a faulty coating on the inside of the differential housing from the factory but landrover never issued a recall and expects someone to spend 4000 to replace the part. They do not sell any type of rebuild kit or parts. I have continued to drive my LR3 and it decreased the fuel economy not to mention the roaring noise. The noise is continuous when driving. Landrover forums show page after page of differential problems but landrover will do nothing.

Rear locking differential started humming. Currently (within 1000 miles) it got very loud. I was told by the dealer it needs to be replaced at $3,200 out of pocket costs. After checking online forums seems like this is very common issue and known to manufacturer. They should make national recall for all vehicles exhibiting this problem.
