67k spent on an Hse
Less than 3000 miles, and 2 problems so far:
- tailgate flap no longer works (can be lifted manually fortunately)
- driver side window no longer lifts (the seal has self destructed)
Drives nicely, but not very impressed - am I just unlucky?

Less than 1200 miles on the clock and mines been in the dealership twice for problems.
Info screen freezes and scrolling to other screens just show empty pages, rear window seals on passenger door falling out, Air Conditioning packed up and pumping our mega hot air, Auto Emergency braking warning shows when driving on otherwise empty roads. Drivers door speaker not fitted correctly and pushed into door cavity.
And that's just to date, who knows what will happen tomorrow !
Build quality is very poor and dealership (Marshalls Melton Mowbray) just trying to fix and fire fight the issues. JLR need to get this resolved.
For 60K + vehicles these issues are not acceptable.
