Have had this happen a few times before - temp gauge showing -16 (when about 20 degrees outside) then quickly climbing back up to +20. Today though was the first cold morning since i've owned the car. Started up, temp gauge read 2 degrees, drove 3 miles to get some fuel, started the car back up and read -16. 18 miles later it had crept up to -2. it definitely wasn't that cold.

Will add it to the snagging list for first trip back to the dealer (if they ever reply to my emails that is)

Perhaps they meant it would be available in July 2018 and not 2017 :o

Never had it happen in my 2 years with our MY16 HSE. Its happened several times with my month old 2018 HSE.

Another "endearing" Land Rover feature.

Mine is booked in for the described software update next week; double checked it’s available with dealer today.

I hope it works and doesn’t make things worse.. (nervous)!

Will let folks know here..

Had my first experience of this yesterday. I was on a longish journey and made a brief first stop after about 90 miles. When I restarted I was surprised to see the ice warning alert at 3 degrees C. The outside temperature was well over 10 and it was sunny and dry. It fairly soon started to go up but I have no idea whether the readings are accurate now.

Had the software fix done today, so far so good.

Obviously, only time will tell if it’s a cure...
