Re: EV battery range of Disco Sport & Evoque PHEV (p300e)

Driving a petrol DS and getting 16mpg on 2.5 miles into town from cold at 2 deg C, that sounds OK to me given it’s a smaller engine lugging a battery and electric drivetrain around in the PHEV.

Re: Farewell Discovery Sport, hello Evoque!

As a postscript I've had a conversation with the CEO's Office re the corroded discs and they're happy that the discs only last 25k miles and were not prepared to offer a gesture of goodwill, which was disappointing and means I'll more than likely move away from JLR when the time comes to replace th...

Re: Harsh/ jerky gear changes

Not certain about the DS, as mine have both done relatively low mileages, but I am very familiar with the Freelander 2. The gearbox does "learn" your driving style as such if you drive like Miss Daisy for say 50 miles then the gear changes become smoother and at lower rpm, if you drive it like you ...

Re: Harsh/ jerky gear changes

You could always try a gearbox reset first. Not sure if this is urban myth, but it resets the 'learning' function of the gearbox. I don't think the gearbox does learn as such, but selects from a number of maps which one to use to match the desired response it 'believes' the driver wants. It's a tech...

Re: Software update for coolant system

You might want to make the booking now, as they are swamped with MCP/Fleet vehicles from Whitley currently. Thanks, have done so - via GS central booking line with £30 for a loan car which is something Stratford never charged, I guess that's why they closed.... ;-) Given how far GS are out of Coven...

Re: Software update for coolant system

So any rhyme or reason as to who gets the text notification (or any kind of notification)? My MY19 P240 has this listed for it in Topix, but no contact from LR or dealer. Your retailer in Stratford closed its site completely 3 weeks ago. All business has been transferred to Coventry or Northampton....

Re: DPF Cleaner Additive?

I wonder has the DPF regime changed? Our old DS would do an active regen every 200 miles or so, noticeable as a rise in fuel consumption and the stop/start non-function. The newer 240 DS to the best of my knowledge hasn't done an active regen, it certainly doesn't add fuel to the oil as the level g...

Re: Hard to resist

Mmmm, not so sure. The gearbox is the same as the 240/290 (in old money), and the D150 is the same engine as the D180 which with a few tweaks is now putting out 200bhp, just 10bhp short of the map. I think plenty of people have mapped the D180, it won’t do much more than 200bhp due to the fuel injec...

Re: Rear Door lock replacement

Wow, not heard of any of those door lock issues! Maybe the older DS are now hitting the age where failures happen and it’ll be more prevalent now.
