Re: Return of the SD1 ( or Princess ? )

Re: DPF Bracket

I would agree absolutely with this but the line they are taking is that the DPF is not covered and the bracket is part of the DPF. I feel exceedingly let down by this Land Rover dealership warranty. Further, we took out additional insurance for the tyres and at MOT were told one tyre had a nail in ...

Re: Just in the process of buying ny first disco sport

I'm also just about to take the plunge with a DS. But just reading around the Internet, am concerned about apparent poor reliability. Should I go ahead or look to get something else? I can only comment from my experience and the overwhelming evidence on here, the DS was a nightmare and yes diesels ...

Re: Getting rid!

You bought a new XC60, and the dealer let you hand it back, giving you a full refund, because after driving it for a while your wife thought it was a bit small ? Well the finance company took it back, the dealer didn’t care as they had been paid for it 👍 I was amazed too that we were able to just h...

Re: Getting rid!

Why did you hand the XC 60 back? Tim Hi Tim, the wife just found it to cramped inside as she is pretty tall, also she could not stop comparing it to the XC90 we had before the DS. I would have kept it but the wife had the final say 🤔 I was amazed they just took it back with no questions asked, if i...

Re: Getting rid!

Quick update, exactly a year to the day the dealer has settled out of court. 12 months of hard work and a lot of stress we got close to what we were after, not only that but we handed the XC60 back that we got to replace the DS and have now purchased a used BMW X5 which so far has been great. So for...

Re: Could this be my next car?

Just filled up and I only put £10 more than normal in the car with the bigger tank, distance to empty 560 miles. Now that’s a big difference. I just picked mine up today! Not as fancy as yours, just the momentum with winter pack. My wife is not sold on it yet, she loved the DS but it had to go 🤔 ve...
