Re: Financial Compensation

Sorry to hear that you have been unlucky with your car. Sounds like a real lemon. I have no experience of compensation however I suppose you have to as a starting point find out what the car is worth to LR. Which would be 2nd hand trade in price minus a little for your trouble.

Re: Would your buy a Discovery 5?

Hi Phaeton sounds like you have been fortunate and got a good one.🤣🤣
If I had had the problems you list I think I would also be looking at a rejection. You wouldn't be the 1st. Might be wrong but I believe the HSE LUX seems to be more buggy than other trim levels.

Re: Gearbox Fault

Ok got you. I believe the manual refers to switching on the ignition. Have you put your query to other LR D5 sites?

Re: Gearbox Fault

1st I've heard of this. Also never heard of starting up in aux mode. What is this and how do you do it?

Re: 1 year old HSE 3.0L - but now a new 3.0?

Possibly negotiate some interim oil changes. Obviously don't know your driving style but doesn't seem to make much difference as far as I can tell most on here require a oil change around 6k. Nothing wrong with the engine other than that.

Re: Would your buy a Discovery 5?

I think you get used to the larger vehicle on the road. The only problems is the small car parking spaces they can be a real pain.

Re: Deployable Towbar

Occasionally it will fail first time ie stop half way. About 1 every 10 operations. But no more than that.
