Nissan is Junk compared to Land Rover

Guys - After owning my 2016 LR4 for 2.5 years and 30,000 miles I can tell you I had way more issues with the 2004 Maxima. The LR4 has had one suspension fault, repaired under warranty and other wise has been rock solid. The Maxima had problems from new starting with the electric seat and moving on to multiple issues with the CD player, the ABS Actuator failing ($2,000 back in 2010ish) and all the sensors going bad. The front conrol arm bushings went bad early on and cost over a grand to repair. It even had the heat go once and I froze my butt off, it was a blower motor resistor. The maxima was always recovering from an issue, had an undiagnosed issue, or was waiting for a new problem to happen. I never trusted the car and who would have thought that a Land Rover would crap* all over it quality wise? The paint also peeled and cracked and bubbled within the first 5 years and they wouldnt fix it. The sunroof leaked. There are more things but my point is guys avoid the 6th gen, its a lemon.

You sound like a real cool person to hang around in real life.

So you are comparing a 3 year old car, to all of the issues you have experienced with your 15 year old car? Get back to us in 12 years when your Land Rover is worthless, has plastic pieces falling off left and right, has massive oil leaks, transmission issues and multiple electrical problems.

Stupid thread. But I expect nothing less from someone who pays more that rock bottom price for a Land Rover. Great way to throw your money away.

this

honestly, no offense but any LandRover made in the last 30 years is junk. like everything else theyre fine to about 100,000km but people ditch them when the 100k service comes up

when i worked in a garage years back, we touched any make/model. people were bringing in early 2000's LandRover Disco II for repairs and it became the first model the boss said we wont do anything more than oil changes and tires on. theyre junk, one had only like 120,000km on it and got a cracked cylinder. we put a used engine in it, no lie one month later it shot a piston straight out of the side of the block onto the road. then the trans grenaded 4 months later. we had a few other LandRovers come in where you fix one leak, another one comes 2 weeks later and its just miserable

and also no **** youre going to have more problems on a 15 year old car than a 3 year old car when the Rover hits 15 years old, it'll be on Craigslist for $1500 needing $10k of work
