The Land Rover Discovery LR4, also known as the Discovery 4 in some markets, is a midsize luxury SUV that was in production from 2009 to 2016. It represents the fourth generation of the Land Rover Discovery lineup. The LR4 was known for its impressive off-road capability and spacious, well-appointed interior. Some of the problems Discovery 4 owners may experience are:
Cooling System Problems: Some LR4 owners have reported coolant leaks, which can lead to overheating and engine damage if not addressed promptly.
Electronic Parking Brake Problems: Issues with the electronic parking brake, such as failures to engage or release properly, have been reported.
Intermittent “Normal Height Only” Suspension Fault: The feature that allows you to raise and lower the suspension—most helpful if you plan on doing any off-roading with the vehicle—fails, making you unable to adjust the suspension at all.
Heated Windshield Problems: One side of the windshield no longer melts the ice and snow like it should. If the problem worsens, you might be left with a completely frozen over windshield.
Taking care of these problems immediately should be a top priority for any Discovery 4 owner. For the best experience and the lowest cost, we highly suggest that you bring your LR4 to an experienced British Auto repair expert who will have seen most—if not all—of these issues before and be able to easily tackle any problem that emerges.
