Should You Consider Selling Your Junk Car? – Land Rover Discovery

Junk 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport

We just purchased this 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport HSE in Lake Forest, California, with a blown engine. Unfortunately this car only had 61k miles before the engine exploded. The customer opted not to spend $16,000 for a new engine but to cut his losses and buy a new vehicle.

Although it can be heartbreaking to sell your car in events like this, at JunkCars.com we try and make the process as painless as possible by handling all the paperwork and towing your car away for free.

Here are some common issues reported by owners of the 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport HSE:

1. Transmission Issues: Some owners have reported problems with the transmission, such as rough shifting, gear slipping, or a delay in gear engagement.

2. Electrical Problems: Various electrical issues have been reported, including problems with the infotainment system, malfunctioning sensors, and issues with the electrical wiring harness.

3. Engine Oil Leaks: Oil leaks from the engine have been reported by some owners. This can be caused by faulty gaskets or seals and may require repairs.

4. Suspension Noise: Some owners have experienced rattling or clunking noises coming from the suspension system. This can be due to worn-out components, such as bushings or control arms.

5. HVAC System Problems: Issues with the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system have been reported, including problems with temperature control, blower motor failures, or weak airflow.

6. Turbocharger Problems: Some owners have encountered issues with the turbocharger, such as turbo lag, reduced power, or failures.

7. Electrical Drain on Battery: There have been reports of the battery draining quickly due to electrical system issues, leading to difficulty starting the vehicle.
