  1. Is Collision Avoidance Braking Standard?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I'm looking at CPO 2015 and 2016 RRS HSE. I know there's an optional package that has additional safety and cruise control features, but I was wondering if the standard RRS HSE includes the emergency braking system that most modern cars come equipped with. A system that brakes autoamtiaclly if...
  2. Engine Surge while stopped

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I just bought a 2013 Range Rover Sport and have only had it for a few days. Three times so far the engine starts surging while I am stopped and I have to press really hard on the brake to keep the vehicle from moving forward. Then after a few seconds it goes away. It only seems to happen...
  3. Rear Left Wheel Lug Nuts Extremely Loose, Noise When Braking

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hello Everyone, I have a 2010 RRS S/C (just bought it 3,000 miles and a few months ago, 45k miles now). About 1.5 months ago I noticed that 1/5 lug nuts (only on the rear left wheel) was extremely loose. So, I tightened it and went on my way. Now, however, I'm starting to notice a "clunking"...
  4. Standard Braking System Squeaking on Light Pedal Application

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hello All, I own a 2016 RRS TD6 and have noticed when I apply my brake pedal on light application it tends to squeak. I understand Brembo brakes have a known issue and have revised brake pads to address but what about standard brake systems? Does any L494 owner had this happen to them. I washed...
  5. Weird light in headlight comes on when braking

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Weird. I replaced my brake lights recently with LED when one was out. Noticed when checking them in garage that small lights come on in the front of the vehicle when braking, a small bulb in each front headlight. A small yellow bulb toward the edge of the vehicle, one on the passenger side...
  6. L405 Braking Performance

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Hello all, First post here. Wondering about the L405 braking performance. I understand that all models use the same rotors/calipers? How well does it stop? Brake fade? Is the brake setup powerful enough for such a big and heavy vehicle? Users experience appreciated. Thank you
  7. 2008 Sport SC shaking when braking

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I am looking for some help, I own a 2008 Rage rover sport supercharged. I have a few issues, I'm not sure as to whether they are connected or not. 1st, I get a serious steering wheel shake whilst braking at speeds of around 80 kmh or less the shake is very noticeable. I have just replaced all...
  8. Steering wheel vibration when braking

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I'm sure your first thought is, "Oh, the rotors are warped (or have pad buildup from excessive heat)". After the dealership has replaced front pads, rotors, and sensor 5 times in the past 3 months, I can pretty much rule that out. Additionally, the dealer has replaced both front lower control...
  9. Steering shimmy when braking at 50+ mph

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I looked through the forum for some answers, and found some posts on this, but I could not find an answer, so sorry if I missed it somewhere. I have a 2008 RRSC with 62,000. Love the truck. For some time now I have a shimmy when braking at higher speeds. I have had the rims checked for any...
  10. Braking using the Engine/Gearbox - Tips please

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    My RRS SDV6 3.0 arrives soon and I would like to get my head around this in advance... My current SUV has a 5-Speed Box with a similar Sport setup to the RRS, in that if I push the gear selector to the left I can then manually go up and down the box. I frequently use that for initial or...
  11. My test for braking distances on snow

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I recently acquired a 2012 Sport V8SC and was wondering how well it brakes on snow. I was unable to find anywhere a comparison with other cars, so I decided to test myself, and share the info here in case someone else is interested :) I compared to a VW Tiguan. Both vehicles are fitted with new...
  12. Clicking noise when braking

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I dropped my 06 RRS HSE off at the Dealer yesterday to take a look at the issue. When braking, either at high speed or low speed, there is a clicking type noise coming from the rear driver side. It sounds as if it's doing it once per rotation on the wheel. I can reproduce the issue every time...
  13. Is adaptive cruise control retrofittable? + intelligent emergency braking?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Is adaptive cruise control retrofittable? + intelligent emergency braking? Is adaptive cruise control retrofittable on a 2014 Range Rover? A dealer has one coming my way and it's the only feature I really wanted in my next Suv that is missing. I would also like to know more about intelligent...
  14. 1998 4.6 HSE dash instruments fail when braking.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hello all, My 98 RR 4.6 HSE was working perfectly until a few days ago, with a couple of minor exceptions, and then suddenly, when I turned the car on the dash lights all started blinking (ABS, Battery, Oil, Check Engine, Traction Control, EAS height, Overheating, Low Fuel) plus the ODO and the...
  15. Close call with Intelligent Emergency Braking and Forward Alert system

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Close call with Intelligent Emergency Braking and Forward Alert system So far my IEB and Forward Alert system had been working normally until very recently when I nearly rear ended a brand new Jaguar F-type convertible (oh the irony). I was driving at about 35-45 miles an hour on a minor road...
  16. Engine Braking

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Driving a SCV8. Around 2nd gear (from 3rd) as I keep my foot of the accelerator, I often times will feel a jolt forward due to (from what I think) is engine braking. Has anyone else noticed an issue with the engine braking? Maybe it's normal and takes getting used to??
  17. Engine Braking For Steep Grades

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    With every other car I've ever owned, I've just change from D to a lower top gear selection (so typically from D to 3 or 2) to handle steep grades and used the brakes as needed when engine braking wasn't sufficient. With the L405, it looks like I've got a chance of switching the transmission to...
  18. Sloshing noise when braking

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Morning all, I recently purchased the new range rover sport and when I braking you can hear what sounds like petrol sloshing around in the tank. It is pretty loud and not what I expected when spending 70k. I am a first time owner and rather frustrated to say the least. I have spoken to the...
  19. Rover jerks right before full stop

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi everyone, Just before I come to a full stop, I feel the Rover jerk or kick (that's the best way I can describe it). I've searched online, but I can only find info on P-38s and newer. I've gone through the braking and transmission searches in the forum, but haven't unearthed much in the way...
  20. Intelligent Emergency Braking (IEB) not available.

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hi, I have my new 2014 RRS exactly one month and have my first electronics problem. Had a warning come on saying IEB System Not Available. Also means that the cruise control doesn't work as I have ACC. Called the garage and it's in with them for checking. Hopefully they can fix it quickly as...
