Yep of course.
It's money again
Yep of course.
I think everyone has the right to their own driving style. Never owned a vehicle before that tells me where and how I should be driving, and for how long. I really don't have time to be forced by my car to go for a half hour drive especially when it tells me to do it every week. And I won't.
Don't hold your breath, my dpf was changed and the yellow lamp was back 5 days and maybe 50km later at most. No fault found now and they are giving it back to us. We will need to trade for a petrol.Karwomann wrote: ↑Wed Feb 21, 2018 7:18 amYes I agree. It’s infuriating that the blame for these filters is being put on the owners. I can’t believe they ever started saying that, they’ve made themselves look ridiculous. Since when do you spend that amount on a car only to later find out that it can’t cope with town driving! My dealer is not saying that fortunately, but I did get it from a central customer services call. When you start thinking whether you should just walk somewhere instead of driving because the car might not like it, that’s not good!
Mine is still at the dealers, after the exact same scenario- software update and new injector after the engine light came on. 5 days and about 10 miles later the amber lights came on and soon after, the red. I’m driving a courtesy car while they investigate the scrf thing I was advised about and they tell me what my options are, that doesn’t leave me out of pocket.
Interesting to read all these posts about people having the same issues... I have a RR Sport '15 and having the exact same problem. DPF warning has come on 3 times so far this year (as well as other times in previous years). Took it to the service centre this morning and it's just 'normal' apparently and all down to the short trips I take. BULLSH*T!! We live in a city - were always going to do short trips... why on earth would we or anyone else spend a huge amount of money on a car which is going to be a massive pain the ass?! I took it on the highway for a 4hr round trip and 2 weeks later - the filter is full. I called LR Australia and the guy said - no that doesn't sound right... but the guys at the service centre thought that was normal and then proceeded to explain the filter regen process completely wrong... they don't even understand how it works!! ARGHHH. (it took me 5 minutes of googling to find out how it worked when I got home)dsaus wrote: ↑Fri Feb 16, 2018 8:32 pmhope that helps
What is the average distance people getting before the active burn light has been coming on ?
We were never informed about the Filter when purchasing the DS.. and i think this is JLR fault
So far we have had the car towed twice due to the filter blocking up
the Exhaust filter has been replaced once ( it went from yellow light to red light in 20km)
Even now with the new filter it is filling up and needing an active burn in 249km (it take me a 20km special drive to emplty it, 40km round trip)
so as a guess in 12000km of driving I have had to do 1200km of special drives to to keep this car on the road!!!
plus fuel and my time......Landrover Experience.....
Good to hear you are trouble free.adeolly wrote: ↑Tue Mar 06, 2018 11:20 pmI have been reading these posts with a sense of dread as to when the amber light would appear as my wife does a fair few short trips alongside the twice a day 9 miles at a reasonable speed school run, and the odd longer weekend run. Manual car too, rarely goes onto dual carriageway and only seen a motorway once. So far though, after 2200 miles all is fine (touch wood). Our DS was built in mid-Nov '17 and the VIN is outside the range listed in SSM73697.
