Hello there! Tell me, has anyone noticed a low-frequency noise (vibration) in the car, that appears at speeds of 50-60 km/h or when you press the gas pedal when driving at low speed at engine just above 1000 rpm?

Hi Anton, I just took delivery of my new P250S in December 2020. I am having the same issue as you describe. It was my catalyst to join the forum.

I have not yet determined the cause. I suspect its a sound wave generated from the floor space. I'm searching for solutions and trying different things. If I find anything that help I'll come back and post an updated reply.

This sounds like the drive line vibration that was the reason I had to reject 2 new Jaguar F paces which are built on the same platform as the Velar. JLR stated that this was a characteristic of the F pace and could not be rectified so it led to the rejection.
I have not had the same problem so far in 14 000 miles with the Velar.

I'm having the same issue. New Vellar 2020 with under 500 miles on it as of today. At around 1000 RPMs, there is a hum or drone type noise that resonates deeply in my ear drum. Feels like when the back window is open while driving.
Above 1K rpm, no problem. If driving in traffic, stop and go, and engine revs at around 1K RPM, this noise happens 100% of the time.
Feels like a low freq harmonic being generated by the engine at this low RPM. Brining my car in today and hope they can figure things out.

Yes, that's an accurate description of when my noise comes up. It comes from engine vibrations when driving at such low revs!
And what did they say?

I can only tell about my D300 MJ 19
I had the vibrating sound exactly at 1500rpm.
I was told this is the charchteristic.......several times over 1 1/2 yerars. Suddenly i had a vibrating sound while standing at the trafficlights. Every single stop. So i drove to the Dealer, and guess? I was told that this is a Range Rover, and he he could show me a Sport with even more vibrating. And finally: I hast a defective rear light, so again to the dealer. Got another mechanic, told about vibrating even while Just running, He listend, lifted, found, fixed with cable ties and.....gone!!!!
The 1500 Rom Vibration and the one while Standing!

I was told ist was the def AdBlue vibrating and hitting i think the body.

Im happy now

I recently started to notice similar behavior, but only with few difference:

- only on RPMs around 750 , when car is standing IDLE on "P"
- applying gas and raising the RPMs is removing the vibrations
- there is unpleasant feeling when getting out of the running car , just like mentioned in previous posts "back window is open while driving" in the space of door opening.

I got P250 engine. The car will be get service in April so I will certainly mention it to my dealer. No need to panic right now.

Has anyone gotten a good answer to this question? I have a P250 and the same issue: an annoying drone through the cabin when cruising at low RPMs (anything under 1,400). It's obviously resonation from the 2.0 Turbo, so I brought the car to the dealership and they performed an ECU update. It helped a little, but the sound is still there and drives me nuts. I can correct it for by using the paddle shifters and downshifting to keep RPMs above 1,500 but I don't think I should have to fix Land Rover's mistake.

Interesting! I have the same sensation although it sounds rather like a low humming, not entirely unpleasant 😏 ... definitely different from the sound of having rear windows open which would create a type of vacuum on the cabin which is unpleasant on the ears.
But the sound and slight vibration is definitely there at low revs in our P250 ... if this is a a 'characteristic' of the Range Rover line, so be it. The car certainly sounds still more refined than our previous 2016 Volvo XC90 .. but not as nice as our previous XF 3.0 V6 😁

I have ordered a new Velar - seeing this thread brought back bad memories with the only Jaguar I have owned. It was a new XF back in 2011. It had this low frequency noise between 1000 - 2000 revs, so always in traffic. It went into the dealers 3 times and despite the technician saying not only could he hear it, he had heard it on other 2011's as well. The dealers and Customer Service Avoidance said it was a characteristic of the Jaguar and was part of the 'Jaguar experience'. I sold the car after only 1 year at a great loss as I couldn't tolerate it anymore. I found out on a Jaguar forum some time later, that Jaguar were forced to admit that it was sound attenuation from the brake pipes on the bulkhead - to resolve it was a total engine out job and so they had tried to dodge the issue as it was so expensive.

I am starting to get concerned about my very expensive P400e HSE !

My new P400e has this very low frequency drumming/booming noise at speeds below 30MPH, which is extremely uncomfortable and gives the same sensations as, say an ear infection or sinus infection. I'm suspecting it is coming from the sub woofer and speakers, due to a mistuned or faulty Active Road Noise Cancellation system. It's at the dealership, but would be interested to hear your thoughts...

Hi Fadelovo. Mine has spent the past week at the dealership, and I've been assured that it is a software issue that will be fixed within the week. Fingers crossed. I'm surprised that it isn't a more widely known/reported issue, as the service Velar I was loaned was the same.

Out of interest, could you describe the "symptoms" that you're experiencing?
Cheers

I will share with you my experience with my 2020 Velar (D275SE), issue noticed at approx 600 miles from new.

At around 1500rpm you would hear what I can describe as a resonance noise, every time at 1500 rpm whether going up the revs or down.

I arranged to take it into dealers and whilst they could hear it they could not find the source of the noise, so they started root cause analysis by taking bits off the car (that was until I found out), by this point they had removed the N/S door card and passenger seat, all to no avail.
On hearing that they were disassembling my car I stopped them and collected the vehicle. I rebooked the car in and agreed with the dealer that they would only allow a master technician on the car and approach in a more scientific way and not to slowly disassemble my car and in turn induce more squeaks and rattles.

On the next visit they quickly called me to state they "had fixed" the issue, on asking what it was they stated that there was a bolt missing holding a bracket to the gearbox (a bracket holding hydraulic pipes). I even sensed excitement in their voice that they had found the issue, as though they were proud !! My concern was more with what other bolts could be missing from the vehicle, maybe more important ones. I ended up speaking to the dealer principle and he assured me someone would go over the car checking all key areas to make sure nothing else was missing.
On collection of the vehicle and approximately a couple of miles down the road my wife called me upset saying she could still hear the noise.

At this point I was losing the will with this car so I then got in touch with customer service and told them what had occurred. I explained that this situation was totally unacceptable and that I fully intended to start the process to reject the vehicle. They asked me to give them one more chance to resolve the vehicle and they agreed to send engineers directly from Land Rover to meet the vehicle at the dealer and to work with the technicians to find the issue.
After 2 days at the dealer they called to state they had found the issue, The service manager who had heard the noise on road test prior to rectification and now road tested again assured me the noise had gone. It turns out that that the fuel pipes were not fitted correctly resulting in this noise.

Now 9000 miles on there is no vibration noise ..........................................but there is now a creaking from the steering system on slow speed maneuvering ...............another visit to the dealer !!

I have the same issue which started from day 1 of driving the new vehicle: there is a low frequency vibration noise between 1000 - 1400 rpms. It only starts after the car has been driven 10 minutes or so (once the engine is warm). I had to bring my 2021 Velar into the dealer today for a recall/update to the InControl system. I mentioned the vibration to the service consultant and they are looking at it now. I will report back on what they find/say.

Unfortunately they could not figure it out. They heard the noise and looked through everything but could not determine the issue. They also said that they had another 2021 Velar in for service and it made the exact same noise. They recommended that I mention the noise again when I bring back for its one-year maintenance service. I guess I will need to learn to live with it.
