Continuing to have endless problems of the battery draining for unknown reasons. When the battery drains too low the vehicle then goes into "crash mode" and I have to have it towed and the computer flashed to have the codes reset or else it's not drivable. It's happened on multiple occasions since I have owned the vehicle.

I have 2009 LR2 with 93K miles on it. I got 130 multi point inspection by the Honda dealer where I bought the car for the humming noise coming from the back. They gave me clean sheet with just 1 tire replacement needed. 1 week later I got the car checked by the Land Rover dealership and was told its my rear differential which will cost North of $3K. I researched and come to know that there many people out there with this large cost problem with Land Rover... why hasn't this been a part of recall"?" I don't have $3K+ sitting around to address the problem. Please assist. Thank you

I bought this car new in 2009 ( was used as a retired loaner for 4 months- had 7000 miles on it when bought) had this for 5 years now, is a low mileage at 59000, would only use this to drive to and from work/home, did not ever engage in any off roading at all not once, had only used this terrain response feature maybe few times in the last 2-3 winters ( when we had snow); all the sudden I noticed, a light saying terrain response system de-activated...I don't remember doing or pushing any button prior to the incident, so I brought my vehicle to Land Rover in orland park- they told me that the terrain response system had failed; they couldn't tell me what would cause such problem. The terrain response system is not a wear and tear thing, it is a safety feature that has failed for no apparent reason. I brought up a case to the head office of Land Rover of America and they refuse to look further into this problem, such a disappointment; Land Rover is over-rated, I will never buy another one again.

2nd complaint! see NHTSA id number: 10471434. Ref service bulletin no.: TB-0081, engine vent hose coolant leak.coolant leak caused the failure of the alternator again, this time leaving my child stranded on the side of the road! gulf coast Land Rover repaired the leak and alternator in 2012 at a cost of $1122. But, did not fix the problem so here I go again! I will have to pay to tow the vehicle in for repair and Land Rover will charge me a bloody fortune to replace the defective vent hose (and alternator) that damaged the alternator with another hose that will eventually fail!
