“Law360, New York (March 19, 2015, 1:26 PM ET) — A New Jersey federal judge on Wednesday pared claims in a putative class action alleging Jaguar Land Rover Automotive PLC manufactured and sold Range Rover vehicles equipped with defective electronic air suspension systems, refusing to toss the common-law claims but cutting consumer protection claims as time-barred.
U.S. District Judge William H. Walls partially granted the automaker’s bid to dismiss a second amended complaint in the suit alleging model years 2003 to 2006 of the Range Rover have a suspension defect that causes the suspension system’s rubber air bellows to develop leaks, subsequently releasing air pressure and losing their ability to hold the vehicle’s weight.

The case is Majdipour et al. v. Jaguar Land Rover North America LLC, case number 2:12-cv-07849, in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey.

2011 Range Rover Sport

This 2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is outfitted in elegant Autobiography trim, and if this car fits your life story, you’ve clearly arrived. The cabin is well-appointed and comfortable for an average-size guy like me. The caramel-color leather and stitching are gorgeous, and the dashboard looks like someone slathered scotch all over it. I mean that in a nice way; this color looks as if it should be poured over ice and lightly stirred. Even during a rainy commute, the interior was isolated and serene. The elevated road view was useful in seeing taillights far ahead on rain-slicked roads, which was critical in minimizing panic braking on what could have been a treacherous commute.But the real star of the Range Rover Sport is this blown V8, which serves up the torque in gobs low in the band. Bury your foot from a standstill and hold on: This thing shoots to 50 mph and revs to 5,500 without breaking a sweat. The exterior has strong military bearing and looks imposing, like the proverbial rolling fortress. If I had kids and a Labrador, this would be one of my SUVs of choice.

2010 Range Rover Sport drive train and electrical problems

I have a 2010 RRS S/C purchased in January. It’s an incredible vehicle, but has been unreliable for me. It’s currently at the dealership for the 2nd time in as many months undergong diagnosis and transmission review for what appears to be bizarre electrical problems. The first time this happened, every warning light on the dash came on followed by multiple error messages. I lost power steering and virtually all engine power. The vehicle was towed to the dealership on a flatbed, and a few days later I got it back with a “no fault found” diagnosis. The problem did not rear its head while at the dealership so the fault codes stored in the ECU were reviewed then cleared.

A week ago last Monday a similar problem occurred (all dash lights and multiple error messages), but this time the transmission wouldn’t shift out of low gear. The dealer has had it now for over a week and they are “still working on it”. The ECU’s session files have been forwarded to LRNA but since this is the first time this problem has been seen, there is no knowledge of the cause nor is there a fix. The FSE-Field Service Engineer has recommended the vehicle’s wiring be checked and to have the transmission pan pulled, and although they did find a high-resistance ground point and fixed it today, I have very low confidence that this is the root of the problem.

Although the RRS is a fantastic vehicle when it works, my confidence in it has eroded, and I’m really not sure I’d buy another one. Fortunately for the rest of you, this does not seem to be a common problem. I am currently reviewing the Lemon Laws for my state.

I saw a Santorini Black 2010 RRS S/C on the road today and drooled… until I remembered that I actually own one.
