Land Rover's Discovery 5 is a midsize luxury SUV introduced in 2017. The LR5 is known for its blend of off-road capability and on-road comfort. The LR5 combines luxury and practicality, making it suitable for both family transportation and off-road adventures. Certain issues do arise from time to time in the LR5 and can be found below.
Electrical Problems with the Infotainment System: Touchscreen issues, slow responses, smartphone pairing problems and screen freezing plague the LR5. A software update should rectify these issues.
Water Leaking: Owners have reported water leaking in to the cabin from the windshield.
Driveshaft Problems: If you feel vibrations when driving, it may be from an unbalanced front driveshaft.
Timing Chain Failure: Rattling noises on a cold start or a message on the dashboard about a restricted performance can signify a timing chain failure. Many times this is due to poor construction of the chains, which causes them to stretch.
Taking care of these problems immediately should be a top priority for any Discovery 5 owner. For the best experience and the lowest cost, we highly suggest that you bring your LR5 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.
