    So today my 10 month old discovery was sold back to the dealer at what I think was a good price
    Far far better than WBAC and even managed to squeeze a bit extra out when they came to view prior to the agreed price.
    It had just done 2000 miles and was telling me service due in 300 miles Rolling Eyes
    So with it gone and a new pick up ordered I think that will be my last Land Rover for the foreseeable , even though swmbo has a low mileage freelander 2 which has been faultless since new😁
    My disco had been in to dealer 4 times since new , and now showing wants a service🙄

    Anyway big thanks to you guys for help tricks info and banter Thumbs Up Bow down

    But now time to move on after 37 years of Land Rover ownership everything from a series 2 to lightweight ,101 ,various range rovers and discovery’s

    Thanks chaps Thumbs Up

    Good luck. Thumbs Up

    I left my D5 in my garage today and drove the boys Corsa SXI in black. When it needs petrol, he just leaves it to fester in the driveway until I take the hint. Rolling Eyes

    I started to get to know the new car.
    So far everything I've tried is working, other than maybe the rear seat entertainment.
    No response to remote - I know its sending signals because its lighting up when I press a monitor button.
    I'll give it another go tomorrow.
    They put on Android Auto and ACP just before I left the factory, I'm wondering if maybe they didn't update the rear seat entertainment - according to posts I read here that's important?

    I have to say, we hear a lot of negative stuff about these cars and JLR but looking at the design and the amount of kit on this car its a masterpiece of engineering.

    I really like the HUD and the lane keep assist.
    both are significantly better than I was expecting.

    Remote might not be paired. To pair the remote, hold home and power buttons down for a few seconds. Left and right selection buttons will start flashing. Then select 'pair remote' in the rear media settings.

    Spot on RavRav, thanks to you rear entertainment is fully up and running, much appreciated I hadn't thought of that.
    So it looks like everything's working as it should - haven't tried the advanced tow assist yet, but I think I've tried everything else now.

    I'm made up with this car Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

    Crying or Very sad a common tale...The Pickup bit is something I hear and see on a dailiy basis round here now.
    One quick look at the Auction Marts carpark says it all. Rolling Eyes
    I get that landrover may have made a conscious decision to bin off the Agri Market and Utilitys etc.
    BUT whats baffles me is the tales of woe constantly from their new "core" market of folk who probably dont take them offroad but are still having major aggro and what is often just total disregard for Quality control and basic customer service.
    I'm sure a hefty focus of Quality from the top etc could reverse things.
    In my opinion they have a brand name and image to die for but appears to be dwindling fast...

    Like most on here I love my D5 and in many aspects its up there with the best but still a niggling feeling ref Oil service and Adblue etc... Compared to our fleet of other vehicles which probly visit the garage 2-3 times in 3 years it just seems daft.

    oh well that my two pennyworth anyhow..
    Have a great Monday everyone! Very Happy

    I checked the app to where where the dealer had taken it today (this time nowhere) however noticed they had left it unlocked at 8pm on a friday so the thing I did with it, was lock it via the app.

    My problem with this whole JLR, Reliability, customer care scenario is that the J in LR seems to have set the president for what we are all seeing now, reliability seems to have gotten better on the whole but there are flaws and niggles that go beyond what can be deemed as acceptable on a new vehicle, For a manufacturer to produce a product that is not ready for market with a view to update it as and when they can be bothered if at all is way beyond what i feel is acceptable in to days market. Customer services should be geared up for that but instead they have just attached a pair of ear muffs, blinkers and tied their hands behind their backs......

    It is almost as though JLR are in a race to the bottom, sell it, blame them for it meanwhile we will prosper flourish.....

    JLR's Face Book pages are awash with angry customers slating reliabilty and technical issues, vehicle been in dealers for weeks and even months whilst some one is sat there at JLR taking incomming replies with the same old response verbatim which is making customers even more aggressive....

    On the whole the same thing is being echoed over and over again..... Customer Services are Rubbish, they won't listen, they are ignoring us....

    owners statiing this is their 4th, 5th or 6th vehicle and will never buy another.....
    I'm hearing it a lot and it is always the same !

    This is my first JLR product, to be fair nothing has really gone wrong with it (other than paint fallong off the bumpers and wheels) but the dealer has been terrible including outright lies, 3.5 months into ownership i wont buy another JLR product.

    Whereas the Volvo i had before, went to dealer 5x in 5.4 years and 100,000 miles. Would i buy another? Yes, and had it not been for some silly wanting more than 4cylinder i would have this time

    Unfortunately for us mere mortals who buy this rubbish, taking their Lies comes with the territory, i'm not sure how this has happened or even why we take it, the problem is once the money is handed over theyve got you over a barrel, there is certainly no respect what so ever for the customer, as i say i'm not quite sure at what point the customer ended up always being wrong, but some corporate Johnny come Lately has obviosly devised some marketing strategy that these imbeciles have adopted.

    Fortunately not all sellers utilise this form of lurid distain toward their customer base.

    No inagree, other brands are consoderably better especially the cheaper end of the market! Kia, hyndai, skoda all offer higher levels of reliability and service
