This morning my the sound from the radio just stopped. Everything on the screen is fine, but no sound. If I turn on the NAV, the sound form the radio starts and only comes from the drivers door speaker, and when the nav wants to give directions, everything is silent. TUrn the Nav off and theres nothing at all.

Also when stopped at a light or standing still, the car shakes a bit, it sputters every 15 seconds.

HELP!!!

Mine has done the same thing a few times. If you turn the car off and let it sit for a second it should correct itself.

Re: 2010 S/C

I was seriously thinking of trading in my RR for a 2010 RRS but now I think I'll just hang on to it until Land Rover gets its act together, or maybe just move on to another brand. This is back to pre-BMW days for Land Rover, terrible.

Based on the complaints to date on this site, it seems to me that most all the problems w the 2010's are electrical/software in nature. Mechanically, the 2010's seem to be sorted ok (granted there is not as much difference there except for the engine).

If you wait too long it may get worse in 2013 or whenever the new new RRS comes out. If there's 500# of wiring in the 2010's there may be 700# in the 2013. Giving the Brits more wiring to work with is always an invitation to disaster.

In any case, whatever brand you choose, you have a better chance of not rolling snake eyes snagging a later model in the upgrade cycle. I buy my cars and keep them for 5-7 years, so I've learned the lesson a couple times not to buy the first model year--BMW being one of them. As a result I buy them later in the model cycle. If you can afford to lease a new one every 3 yrs, don't keep it beyond warranty, and enjoy the attention of the dealership service department being lavished on you, then go ahead.

Re: 2010 S/C

G'Day Gooseyloosey.

In full agreement with your interpretation regarding the reliability or otherwise of the new MY2010 Land Rover products so far !

I can remember the problems the new generation Rangies experienced from the '89 model onwards and are detailed in the RRC listing of this forum-one only has to look back 20 years to see the new electrical/software and later on the mechanical failures ?

It's better to stick with the face-lifted model (i.e. '07-2008 RRS's) rather than suffer the pain of being towed back to the dealer.

Cheerio,

Re: 2010 S/C

Other than lacking about 2" of needed legroom, I am ecstatic with my 2010 RRS HSE. And with its weight and size, I won't even complain about the 14.5 - 16 mpg the beast attains :mrgreen: 8) .

Mine only has 200 miles and the gasometer/milageometer tells me I am getting 8.7mpg :shock:, 14.5-16mpg is what I was expecting and what I was getting on my 2006 but maybe there is a break-in period?

Proly the difference between a heavy foot in the snarl of annapolis (gorgeous town BTW) vs. a light foot in the ruralness of PA 8)
