problem #4

Range Rover

  • 16,000 miles


My car has been in 4 times with the same issue, the vehicle will randomly shut itself off, I.e. the car shuts off, the transmission moves to park. It is not ecostart or from my unbuckling the seatbelt. This happens when I am turning into parking spaces and immediately after the vehicle stops, occurrence is 20+ times now. The fault will not save in the computer and land rovers engineers have admitted its probably a software glitch but cannot fix if it doesn't show in computer. I have attempted buyback process with Land Rover with them admitting my car has "inherent defects" they will not buy the vehicle back, are unable to fix this and other issues with the vehicle. Land Rover claims the issue does not affect driveability.

In stop and go traffic for approximately 20 minutes the Range rover's eco mode was engaging properly and shutting down the engine. It had been restarting properly however in one instance the vehicle did not restart and the ┐D┐ indicator flashed. This left the vehicle disabled in the middle lane of traffic. Restarting the engine solved the problem however this could have been dangerous if I had been unable to reengage ┐drive.┐

While driving on a 4 lane road at approximately 40-45mph, my vehicle (5 months old, 6,200 miles) suddenly lost power and rapidly decelerated and would not accelerate. A large warning signal displayed on the dashboard indicating "warning gearbox failure". luckily traffic was light at the time and I was able to maneuver to the shoulder of the road without incident. It appeared the transmission froze and the vehicle was towed. Land Rover has not been able to determine the problem. If I would have been in an area with heavier traffic, or on an interstate I have no doubt that a major crash would have occurred. In researching the 2015 evoque it appears Land Rover has been experiencing significant issues with the 9 speed transmission in this vehicle based on web search results. It appears this transmission has been recalled in several countries, specifically china. I believe that in the interest of public safety a review of this vehicle model's performance history needs extensive review.

Range Rover 4WD 6-cyl

  • 1,829 miles
I was stopped at a light and when I went to go the car would not go into drive - it would only roll backwards. I rolled backwards into another car. After the accident my car would also not go into park. I had to stay in the car with my foot on the brake until the police and tow truck arrived. Land Rover said they were aware of the problem and applied a software patch to the vehicle to correct the problem with the electronic transmission. I feel that this is a potentially fatal condition that should warrant a mandatory recall. Land Rover does not feel that consumers should be notified, and the software patch should only be applied on a case by case basis.
