And yet another problem

So I'm already thinking about throwing the towel in.
Issue 1: I put the key in and then foot on brake press the start button it kicks over as normal but then cuts out. This has now happened 5 times in 2 days.

Issue 2: front wipers are always on auto now sometimes just stop working anytime and will only work on high never going into set position.

I hope somebody can help me my head is battered now all fuses look decent I called the garage but busy for the next week.

Let me add that we've accumulated a few really good working Land Rover Service techs who know your vehicle inside and out. LR Techniker being one of them, great guy.

At least you're not alone. You're in the company of a group that was all, individually, just stupid enough to purchase a Rover.

As one member's signature line reads: "I was warned. I did it anyway".

I bought one BECAUSE I heard for decades how bad they could be. I wanted to prove to myself I could win. It can be done.

A US market Freelander and an LR2 2008-2015 are two diferent vehicles. The US market Freelander is the worst car manufacturered by LR. The LR2 2008-2015 is a much better and reliable car as long as it has been taken care of. When you buy a used LR from LR they check the ones they decide to sell as used and get rid of the one the ones they know are not worth selling due to too many issues or things needing repair (what the service guys at LR that I know have told me). Many used LR's purchased by indy car dealerships at auctions are usually in need of a lot of work (the ones that LR let go) the indy car dealerships fix a few things and sell them off with issues.

I've owned BMW's since 1977. "The Ultimate Driving Machine". Why I haven't stuck a pistol in my mouth is beyond me. In recent years, they've gotten too many failure prone systems, become too expensive to fix, the parts are ridiculously over-priced and often tough to get ahold of and generally unpleasant owner experience unless you have the factory warranty. The Rovers of the last few years are no different.

No doubt the newer one's aren't in the same basket as the Disco's. But they ain't Accords and Corollas. But if I were 30 and single, I think I'd do better with an Rover than a Corolla. Sometimes that makes it all worth it.

Yea I was warned too but I have 2 dogs and the boot size had me hooked I thought maybe I'd get the good 1, I guessed wrong I always owned Mercedes never once had an issue just not practical for what I needed. I love the drive and the height and how large the boot is on the rover but it's killing me already 😐

The newer MBZ isn't immune either. The bigger cars are regularly for sale around here for next to nothing at about 10 years old. People buy them cheap without realizing they're buying a car for $12K but they're paying to fix a $120K car.

Little update car is going into the garage today lr say it's a common battery problem and that they need to triple charge it then put it on lock for 8 hours? I find this very odd but if it works we will see 😊

Batteries are cheap. I don't enjoy walking long distances or being late. If I had to do that, I'd replace the battery. if it's more than a couple years old, its on borrowed time anyway.

Sometimes it's the little things. I've seen batteries do some unexplainable things. I've seen alternators that tested good emitting an AC ripple that freaks out an entire electrical system.

I do know one thing for sure-- in about a decade, way more auto technicians will be living in nice houses in the suburbs.
