Rear suspension HSE TD6

Post by peowsage11 » Wed Feb 07, 2018 3:59 pm

Hi. My Disco 2017 bougt and driven in Norway (excuse my writing) has a very bad rear suspension compared to my previous LR4. If you drive slightly to fast over a speedbump it hits bottom with a bang.. Talked to my salesperson and he says, we are aware of this, and the the Discovey will be available with a differet suspension later this year... Anyone with similar problem? Is this how this car should be?.. Its really bad in daily really think you have a puncture :shock:

Unless you are driving with the car at entry height it sounds to me like you have a problem of some sort. On entry height you will hit the bump stops on even the slightest bump.

I'm on my 4th Disco, and the 3rd with air suspension (HSE-Lux TDV6 bought in July last year) and its the smoothest yet. If you still think you have a problem I suggest you get an independent review (or another dealer at least). On normal ride height I find faster over speed bumps than most cars works best and I certainly have never heard any nasty noises, hit bump stops, or anything nasty other than the look of fear in some passengers.
I have never hit the bump stops on any "normal" speed hump or bump while at normal ride height. I would get it checked.

Don't forget also, if you are driving off from parked there is a slight delay while the car figures out that it needs normal height and starts lifting, not long, but be aware. If in doubt, hit the ride height button right away.
