Re: Diesel Exhaust Fluid Dosing Malfunction

Thanks for the warning MMAA101. Sorry to hear of your bad experience.

Re: Diesel Exhaust Fluid Dosing Malfunction

Hi Sodum, Thanks for letting me know that the message reappeared in your case. It sounds then as if I should have the issue looked at. There is another reason to take it in - the start/stop works very infrequently (a few times a month) despite being 'fixed' by the provision of a new battery (under w...

Re: Diesel Exhaust Fluid Dosing Malfunction

Hi all, Here is my experience with this, which may be helpful. I got this message on my MY2017 DS with 40,000km on the clock last Friday, with my son driving, halfway into a 500km trip from Sydney to Guyra on a backroad. See attached photo. It said "No engine restarts in 870km. Diesel exhaust fluid ...

Re: New to 4wding

Glad to hear you are happy with the off road performance of your DS. Regarding the recovery point on the front of the vehicle, I have advice from Land Rover that you can use it for recovery, with certain caveats.

Re: Beach Recovery Equipment

Vehicle Recovery.pdf Hi gneissdiscosport , The manual says that the front recovery point is not for off road recovery, but I have had it confirmed by Landrover that this is basically a disclaimer. It is quite solid and strong enough for snatch recovery. Regarding my MY2017 DS HSE, Landrover Custome...

Re: Seat belt fault?

Thanks for the link Simon. This sounds a likely explanation. Strange that it is only 1 seatbelt though.
I will try to get more information from the dealer.

Seat belt fault?

I was due to pick up my new DS HSE at 4pm today when I got a call at 2:30pm from the dealer to say that the car had failed pre-delivery testing due to a problem with a seatbelt. The car requires a replacement part that has to be sourced from the UK (I am in Sydney, Australia). Until it is fixed it i...
