Land Rover doors can fly open, sunroofs fly off

"Doors that can fly open as you drive? Sunroofs that can leak or fall out? They might not sound like the kind of problems that can bedevil a high-end luxury vehicle -- but they were the subject of two Land Rover recalls on Wednesday."


Well, these are defects I never have to worry about! No sunroof and doors that don't open even when I want them to

I test drove a new Land Rover last week and good to see they are as unreliable as ever. The one I drove already had a warning light on and stumbled when you accelerated from a dead stop.

At least with a Defender you know you bought a bucket of bolts. No pretenses.

Defender doors are also known to randomly open on turns or on the highway.

Defenders can turn? I've been straight all my life


At the Rover dealership when I parked my truck the whole building emptied to look it over, sales people and mechanics. So I guess those of us that drive these "antique's" have class!
