Brake Squealing at Low Speeds: Some 4th Generation Range Rover owners complain of a loud squealing noise with moderate braking at low speeds.
Digital Instrument Cluster Blackout: Other Range Rover L405 owners have noticed that the instrument cluster may suddenly go dim or completely black while driving down the road. This may be especially alarming at night!
Shock Absorber Problem: The front shock absorbers may suddenly fail, evidence by excessive bouncing on uneven terrain on the nose of the vehicle will dip when braking.
Windshield Washer Problem: New 4th Generation Range Rover owners may find that their windscreen washer have insufficient pressure to completely cover the windshield while driving. This can leave the driver with a dangerously smudged windshield.
