    I purchased my Range Rover 3 years ago, in France. There were issues that I quickly identified and were dealt with by a Land Rover dealership near where I live. There were a few issues that provided them with a challenge and eventually, the Service Manager suggested I might be better using a local garage that employed Rover experienced engineers, who might better help me. The implication was that the Land Rover dealership, employed fitters, who were highly competent with current models but we're less capable of dealing with older models. I had used the local garage for many years and was happy to give them my business. However, whilst they were fine with brake discs, pads etc, I was paying them to not get answers when I had issues with the car. I have had an Air Suspension problem, almost certainly involving a sensor in the rear nearside wheel station. After 2 visits and 2 charges they could not apparently pin down the problem. The main problem that has recently occurred, put the transmission into get home mode. I advised the garage that I suspected that the fluids and filters would probably be the first thing to check. They agreed, did the job and when I collected the car and asked what they thought, they used a highly technical explanation, quote " Your Trans is f***** ". I can drive 19 miles with full use of all gear's, kick down etc but after halting at a junction, the car goes into limp home mode. I suggested to the garage that in my simple world, if something works fine and then stops but after a while will happily operate perfectly again, until I have covered a further 18-20 miles, that the cause may not be as simple as the transmission being f*****. I am happy with classic military vehicles but understand nothing on my Range Rover. Does anyone have any ideas, or is it time to pension off my lovely old Rangie?
