Re: Vibration between 80-110 kph / 50-70 mph

Update

My 2L HSE Lux had this problem, I have just changed it for a 3L with 1600 miles on it, the first thing I noticed was that it did not exhibit this annoying fault ?

Re: Oil change at 6800 miles

Hi When Landrovers were Landrovers, the handbook used to state that if the vehicle was operating in hot, dusty conditions then the service interval is less, also if you are wading often this also had an impact.

Re: Vibration between 80-110 kph / 50-70 mph

Hello

The Discovery 5 HSE Lux is more money than a RR Sport, so for a Dealer to use the excuse they all do that is not what you want to hear after parting with some £75,000 ??
I can't believe JLR has so called engineers that drive these vehicles and do not pick up on the issues ?

Re: Loss of Electrical Power, Flat Battery & Gearbox Fault.

There was an issue with the earth lead from the batt to earth, the mounting was an issue and JLR bought out a modification, maybe worth checking the earth strap ??
