Newly in Northumberland

Post by Wool » Tue Jan 08, 2019 8:11 pm

Took delivery of used DS early December. 12k and presented on perfect condition by Lloyd’s LR in Carlisle.
Done a couple of Thousand miles and very pleased with it. Ran Hyundai and Nissan X trail from brand new before so lashing out best part of 30k for a used car was new to me but to date the DS has been a good move. The previous Far Eastern offerings had their knocks and squeaks even from new so pleased I went up market.
Only biggie for now is Satnav which the dealer has booked me in for software upgrade etc to hopefully resolve my issues.
For now, enjoying the DS and Lloyd’s customer service.

I don't think you'll be disappointed - it's a great car to drive. And if you get fed up with Lloyds, TVLR aren't too far away. You'll find the black really shows the dirt on those Northumberland roads, but with MY16 you shouldn't use too much adblue. While the service pack is applicable you should get free interim oil changes too. Unfortunately it only covers 50000 miles so mine will run out soon.
Things to do :

Enjoy!

Thanks for the tips. Unlike some I have read about on here, the car was fully serviced priory to handover to me. Sad to hear some dealers are releasing cars needing oil changes within a month or so. I’m pleased to see an area of the forum where people are being positive too.
I’l post progress on the satnav once looked at next month.

Welcome and enjoy the beast, from the north east, even though you bought it in the best county.

Hello from another newbie!
I'm jealous that you have black, that's always my colour of choice but my Firenze Red does at least have the black roof!

Black - so 2016, but it looks fantastic when it’s clean and gleaming! Then it rains.

I have to say, compared to my previous black Xtrail, the LR paint is far superior. My 2 year old DS looks better than the Xtrail did when delivered brand new, even on a rainy day!
