When driving down the road it bounces - 1999 Land Rover Range Rover

    I have the same problem. It bounces often when the car has sat for a day or two, and as soon as I enter the freeway the bouncing stops. My mechanic says it's normal, but he didn't inspect it, just said that in general it was normal. I can't believe this is normal because the bouncing seems really unsafe and makes me queasy. I bought this 2000 HSE 4.6 8-cylinder used a few weeks ago. I know nothing about Range Rovers.

Is it bouncing, or is it adjusting itself up& down? If it is adjusting itself, you have a bad ride height sensor.

If it is just bouncing a bit, this can be due to bad shocks and/or airbags. Or your vehicle could be on springs, a replacement recommended by many mechanics that don't know how to work on a rovers EAS.

Sounds like worn or blown struts - they control the oscillation of the car on rougher roads.

bounce a corner of the car to see if you have more than a bounce and a rebound,if more, then fit new shockers,always in pairs,front and rear.

Sound left forward when crossing any ditches


Your front struts or strut is more than likely not working properly. They "bottom out" on rough roads, but can not hear them on smooth roads. I suggest taking the passat into a mechanic and have him check underneath. You can also do the "bounce" test. Have someone bounce up and down on the front while you sit in the drivers seat.

You should hear the same sound. The vw should also bounce up more than once before settling down.

Good luck

Speedometer bounces while driving


your spedo cable is probably just loose which can be fixed by tightening or replaceing. Might as well go ahead and replace it since its a 14 year old truck and its the more sure fire way to fix the bounce.

2001 Ford Taurus rear end bounces/slips off to side slightly


This is most likly a low RR tire. Check the tire pressure first. If that is OK, I would slowly drive to somone qualified to examine the rear suspention to see what might have broken.
