2017 Land rover DISCOVERY SPORT Structure Body Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID1513110
 Internal NHTSA #11151034
 Model Year2017
 File date17/09/18
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemThere were poor construction of the b pillar and spot welds that have made the frame less stable. The issue has not been able to be resolved through multiple attempts at repair, and the manufacturer has known this issue and now does not want to repair, replace or refund. This has also created a distracting issue of noise in the driver ear that makes it distrcting to drive. This same issue has been issued as a recall by subaru for a b pillar welding issue with insufficient spot welds which is the same issue the land rover discovery sport has had and is documented in numberous areas both internal to land rover and external sites and sources. This happens when the vehicle is in motion on an surface and is very distracting and is also seemingly a safety problem as reported by the nhtsa as "not having those welds means the strength of the structure is reduced and that could "increase the risk of injury in a crash" subaru said. In this case the problem could not be fixed, and in the land rover issue i have the problems could not be fixed over 6 repair attempts across 2 different discovery sport vehicles, where the first one was swapped for a second new one which both experience the same problem.
