    Moving from LR3 to RRS

    Hi all, so we've got a lot of issues piling up on our LR3 right now, the primary one being the Air suspension. With close to 200K miles on it we are considering moving onto another vehicle. We've loved our LR3 and it has served us well for 6 years and over 170K miles that we've put on it. The...

    Best repair shop in Moab, UT

    Hi all, is there a good shop in Moab that is familiar with Land Rovers? I have an 08'LR3 that is down to the bump stops. Air suspension has completely failed. I've checked all fuses related to the EAS and DSC and they check out good. I'm suspecting the compressor but really have no idea and I'm...

    Dealer Advice - Parking brake

    Hi All, so I'll try to make this long story short. Several months ago I did the rear brakes on my 08' LR3. I screwed up the parking brake adjustment and the shoes on the passenger side ground into the rotor, and trashed the system. I removed the damaged shoes and all hardware and drove it like...
