Re: JLR UK sales rise again in June

There is definitely a trend. . . But is this the reason for JLR's problems? The last time Jaguar Land Rover's overall first quarter sales were lower than the figures released today was June 2015. For Land Rover / Range Rover cars you have to go back 6 years to June 2013 to find lower first quarter ...

JLR UK sales rise again in June

The UK sales division of Jaguar Land Rover continued to lead the pack in June, increasing its total sales by 4.6%. Well done, Mr. Glover. But sales to the EU, USA, China and the rest of the world again fell sharply, wiping out the UK gains to leave corporate numbers down 10.1% for Land Rover and 8.5...

Re: Approved Used Disco Sport Price Negotiation Tips

I’m looking to buy an Approved Used Disco Sport HSE (Petrol) low mileage (sub 5000) and I’m wondering how much I might expect to be able to negotiate off. I’ve got about £30k at the mo and £33-34k seems the basic price on Autotrader etc for what I want. I’d be paying cash. I’m wondering how long I ...

Watch the financials. This looks like just another carefully-timed diversion.

Re: Jaguar Land Rover posts huge financial loss

Shorting stock is a bit rich for my tastes, I think someone might have been watching too much Billions. In any case, thanks to JLR's mis-management and lack of market foresight, the TTM stock is trading close to a 15-year low at just $11.34 at close of business today. How would anyone who didn't alr...

Re: New Disco Sport Owner

Hi MamLew, I trust you are getting a good deal because they are desperate to get rid of the last few hundred of the old model. I just received a call from the dealer that sold me a new DS in 2017 (fools hadn't updated their database). Was I interested in a new Landmark for 12% off list with another ...

Re: New DS? Dilemma re oil dilution etc

You are allowed the take the car out of automatic mode to increase the engine rev's instead of just pressing the loud pedal harder to achieve the same thing. 7th gear on the 9-speed auto will keep you above 2,000 rpm without destroying fuel economy completely. It also reduces 'lugging' which is esp...
