Land Rover Sunroof Shatters

have uncovered a serious defect on LandRover whereby the sunroof shatters for no apparent reason. Although this is widely documented on the internet, and VOSA has issued a recall on the vehicle I have about the Sunroof, LandRover are not honouring the warranty. I intend to take them to court, and would welcome any supporting instances of this type of behaviour that you are aware of. Kind Regards Michael Hayward

2011 sport 13k miles. 630 am, not hot,not cold, car idling in parking lot of work. 8 miles from home, heard a pop and sunroof glass was shattered. No reason. No rocks nothing. Dealership said they never heard of it. They don't have Internet I guess.

2006 LR3 Sunroof Shattered

My 2006 LR3 sunroof shattered for no reason parked in my driveway. this happened less than 24hrs after getting my vehicle from the land rover service center. It was having a major repair after my coolant hose broke for reason causing my vehicle to overheat on a freeway. Land Rover will not take ownership for anything.

My Disco 3 sunroof shattered overnight whilst parked on my drive. Fortunately I got it to the local garage without it falling in. Just had a call saying that they've sourced the glass and will fit it tomorrow - £239.45 (exc VAT and fitting) - ouch!

Sun Roof Shattered

Same here, just driving on the freeway and BANG the drivers side "Sun" roof simply exploded. I have a 2005 Freelander, 2 door. The glass guy I normally use gave me a hearty "good luck" when I asked him to order it. He has had several vehicles with the same problem.

04 Discovery Sunroof Shattered

I was driving my discovery on the interstate yesterday with my sunroof open. It all of a sudden shattered and exploded shattered glass all over me and inside my vehicle. I know have to cover a $500 deductible to fix it.

2004 Disco

I was driving on the freeway and my rear sunroof shattered. I still can not figure out the reason why. My Disco has 110k miles. The temperature that day was in the high 90s. The highway also has a problem with little rock sometimes flying around because of large trucks. I was going at a speed of 70-75 mph. Really took everyone by surprise. Sounded like a meteor when through my window...big explosion sound. I'm just glad I didn't have anyone on the jumper seats. Glass everywhere!

06 LR3

06 LR3 moon roof just shattered sitting in driveway. We heard a pop and looked outside and that's what we found. Called corporate and they were not helpful. They should take responsibility for this issue. The car was just sitting there for crying out loud!!! Not acceptable for a vehicle of this class. Very disappointing. After market replacement cost is about $550... Dealership $800-900. Just purchased six weeks ago... contemplating selling already.

2006 LR3

Glass shattered sitting yard, car had been parked for 2months, as I travel over seas for work. What can I do to have Land Rover to replace?

2006 LR3

Mine shattered while on the freeway and glass chunks showered me and those behind me on the freeway. Pretty sad that the manufacturer wishes to have nothing to do with it - except install a new one for me for $1,300.00!
