The Range Rover Velar is a midsize luxury SUV introduced in 2017 as a stylish and avant-garde addition to the Range Rover lineup. It's characterized by its sleek and minimalist design, combining cutting-edge aesthetics with traditional Range Rover sophistication. The Velar offers a high-quality interior with advanced technology, a spacious cabin, and a choice of potent engines. While it maintains the brand's signature all-wheel-drive capability, it's primarily designed for on-road comfort and performance. The Range Rover Velar appeals to those seeking a blend of modern design, luxury, and urban versatility within the Range Rover family, but it does not come without some problems.
Transmission Issues: Some complaints of the transmission stuck in park for no reason. This was later found out to be because of a faulty brake light switch in which the vehicle’s computer deemed as “dangerous,” thus locking it in park.
Infotainment System Glitches: Many owners have reported issues with the infotainment system, including screen freezing, slow response times and connectivity problems. Software updates can generally fix any of these issues.
Fuel Leaking: Fuel leaking in to the engine compartment is common with the Range Rover Velar due to the poorly made fuel rail end caps.
Door Handles Issues: Quite common, the door handles in the Velar can become stuck. Lubricating the door handle hinge should help alleviate the problem.
