Re: Hello ALL DISCO 5 owner changing wifes freelander

I thought the fuel consumption might be a bit better than that, my 370Z Nismo does about the same. What did you get on your diesel model? I get just under 40mpg. Good point for comparison - I got 32mpg over the years on my D180, I guess I have a heavier right foot though in truth I guess it’s more ...

Re: Hello ALL DISCO 5 owner changing wifes freelander

Her car is mainly short journeys Buy a petrol DS. Hows yours going Dash? All good, not getting much use at the moment of course..... Averaging 24mpg over 10K miles so far, varies between appalling (late teens / early 20s) in short journeys or having to some fun to reasonable (late 20s) on longer ru...

Thanks for that.

A shame. Sadly another reason for me to move from JLR when the time comes to change.
Seriously? A few hundred pounds on a circa £40K car?

Re: Replacement time looming. Stay or go?

New car is a lot better, it’s the car the original should have been. Just feels better in all respects and cabin is a bit more Range Rover now. New gear selector is good with parking brake a simple press of a button. Tailgate button on the tailgate is much easier to operate. And for me the most enc...

Re: 2 Questions about New DS

1/ Now that we are well into the Mk.2 model DS, do we definitively know whether the exhaust architecture has been altered to prevent the previous problem of increased Regenerations, resulting in lube oil dilution? 2/ Given that DS is said to have peerless off-road ability using sophisticated electr...

Re: DPF regen and Covid

My understanding is that is not necessarily a higher speed, but higher revs that generate the heat to allow it to function correctly. I drive in sport mode on shorter journeys, staying in a lower gear (revs 2000-2500) that keeps the revs up with a higher pressure and heat flowing through. I have ne...

Re: Power Steering Failure

Hi Guys My DS is a 2016 model (124,000 miles) and now out of warranty. I'm a competent DIY mechanic so would it be possible to replace these bolts before they fail? If you have carried out the replacement could you list the type of bolts used and the process followed to replace the bolts. Thanks. I...
