The contact owns a 2016 Land Rover LR4. While driving approximately 60 mph, the vehicle suddenly shut off. Moments later, the engine was restarted and the vehicle operated normally. The vehicle was taken to Land Rover pasadena (3485 East Colorado blvd, pasadena, ca) to be diagnosed, but the failure could not be duplicated and no mechanical failure codes were displayed. The cause of the failure was not determined. The manufacturer was notified of the failure, but no assistance was offered. The failure mileage was 35,000. The VIN was unknown.

Wiring harness of two year old Land Rover LR4 likely constructed of soy wires. Rodents are attracted to the wires and eat them regularly. This causes reduced safety through a compromised electrical system. Manufacturer and dealer refuses to recall vehicles and re-install with appropriate and safe wiring. Further, both manufacturer and dealer push cost of repair ($1200) to consumer and will not honor warranty. Constructing a wiring harness out of materials attractive to rodents appears to this engineer to be a clear design defect that puts drivers, passengers and the general public at risk. Would like to see manufacturer recall vehicles with rodent compromised wiring and replace with new, rodent resistant wiring. This is common problem known to all manufacturers. There have been several class action lawsuits against various manufacturers. Land Rover knows, or should know, the danger of this type of wiring. This problem appeared in my vehicle during normal use and normal storage in a Suburban driveway. I do not train, breed, work to attract, or do research with rodents.

I had a 2011 Land Rover LR4 with major issues the car was taken back by the dealership only a year and a half after purchase, due to lemon law. The dealership replaced the car with a 2016 LR4 due to the many and continued issues. Only 6 months after getting the new LR4 the car randomly caught fire in the school parking lot while stationary. The car was out of service for over three weeks and after only a few days of getting the car back the parts that were replaced by the service department are not working properly. I am afraid the car may catch fire again. I am concerned the car is still a fire hazard and the safely of the car overall, being 5 months pregnant with two small children do not feel safe driving it. The dealership cannot look at the car for more than 2 weeks and so I will be without a car until then and until a diagnosis and repair can be done. I have addressed these major safely concerns with Land Rover corporate but get nowhere. I have let them know that at this point the risk is too great to continue with the car and they need to take the car back, I am not asking to be compensated for the many many inconveniences I have experienced over the past 2 and a half years, but that I just need to be in a car that is safe for me and my family and that is not a Land Rover product! any help you could offer would be appreciated! regards, [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
