Air Suspension System Failure
A vehicle’s suspension system is responsible for smoothing out the ride and increasing control by reducing the impact of bumps and hazards in the road. Air suspension is a style of suspension system that is powered by an electric pump or compressor that pumps air into compressible bellows. These bellows behave like springs in a spring suspension system. Air suspension failure is usually caused by rust, moisture, or a puncture to the bellows.
Common symptoms of air suspension failure include:
- Vehicle rides lower than normal
- Abnormal noises during operation
- Vehicle pulling
- Feeling every bump
- Difficulty steering
Oil is responsible for lubricating parts of the engine, helping to absorb heat and reduce overheating due to friction. Most oil leakage is the result of degraded engine gaskets, oil pan leaks, oil seals, or bad connections.
Common symptoms of oil leakage, which can indicate a more serious problem, include:
- Dark puddles under your car
- Smoke from the engine
- Engine overheating
- The smell of burning oil
The car’s electrical system is composed of the battery, starter, and alternator and is responsible for things like starting the car, powering the dashboard, and other electricity dependent systems such as power locks, power windows, sound systems, and lighting, among others. An electrical failure can be caused by a loose electrical connection, a blown fuse, battery failure, or defective components.
Common symptoms of electrical failure include:
- Battery problems
- Engine won’t crank
- Headlights aren’t working properly
- Burning plastic smell
- Fuses keep blowing out

Notable Land Rover Recalls

- According to Land Rover, a defect in the airbag inflator may cause the inflator to explode without warning. An inflator explosion may result in sharp metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.
Front Brake Hose(s) May Rupture (NHTSA Safety Recall Campaign No. 16V374000)
- In May 2016, Land Rover recalled nearly 75,000 vehicles for failing brake hoses that may rupture and cause a loss of brake fluid.

This problem may result in the loss of the front brake circuit. If a substantial loss of brake fluid occurs, a red warning light may illuminate on the dash. The loss of fluid may also result in increased braking distance or total loss of functionality of the front brakes.
Autonomous Emergency Braking System Failure (NHTSA Safety Recall Campaign No. 18V603000)
- In September 2018, Land Rover recalled its vehicles for potentially defective autonomous emergency braking system failure that may cause the system to fail to intervene when needed.

About Land Rover
At Wirtz Law APC, we are dedicated to protecting consumers from large automakers like Land Rover. Land Rover is a british auto manufacturing brand dedicated exclusively to building and designing luxury SUVs. In January 2013, Land Rover fully merged with auto manufacturer Jaguar. The brands share manufacturing plants in countries across the globe including Brazil, China, India, Slovakia, and the United Kingdom.
While the Land Rover brand remains widely popular among buyers, it has a long reputation of consistent unreliability. In 2012, reports stated that 71% of used Land Rovers and Range Rovers break down each year based on an analysis of 50,000 warranty policies.
The American data analytics company J.D. Power’s reliability scores for Land Rover vehicles between 2007 and 2016 show that for eight years the company’s reliability scores were below average, managing to only reach a maximum of 2.5 out of 5.
In a second study conducted in 2016, J.D. Power researched the average number of problems per 100 vehicles from multiple manufacturers. The average number of problems was 133 per 100 vehicles. The results for Land Rover were, unfortunately, much higher, with the brand seeing 179 problems per 100 cars, just under 2 issues per vehicle.
When Land Rover brags that it goes “above and beyond” it’s easy to imagine they must set the rather low.
I think I have a lemon. What do I do now?
Under California’s Lemon Law, if you’ve given an automaker a “reasonable number of attempts” to repair your vehicle but the problems persist, your car might qualify for repurchase or replacement. Big automakers like Land Rover often try to muddy the water and re-define the analysis of Lemon Law qualification to their benefit – which is why consumers should never fight the big automakers alone! Generally speaking, as few as two (2) repair opportunities can be enough for your car to qualify. Don’t rely on Land Rover’s evaluation of your repair history, contact the professionals at Wirtz Law today.
