Thanks a lot “spikkyboy”, I will refer to your dealer in Cambridge. Hoping it works. Worse fear is being intoxicating mypassengers and myself when occurring. Opening windows is not always an option...

Chris B, like you I actually love the car, I still get a huge grin after 3 years and just over 40,000 miles. In the conditions we had when the beast from the East struck I took her over Shap Fell and she was brilliant. But unlike you we don't have a dealer I have any confidence in on the Red Rose side of the Pennines, I have a catalogue of being told untruths, denials and refusals to do warranty work that is well documented (oil contamination, rear disks, interim oil changes), and on occasion only getting satisfaction by involving JLR Customer Services. Whilst the car is covered by warranty I can live with all that, but I want a little more ownership life than that, and I won't risk it outside warranty.

Ours went at just before two years old. It was the untruths from the dealer over well known warranty work that put us off. I did read further up this thread way back that one chap put a CO meter in the car and got dangerous readings. Could actually put you to sleep on a motorway! We had to put video cameras in the car to prove the fault. Because of escaping hot gases we had numerous other odd faults. Sat nav radio and parking sensors then final straw was the steering. Had that one on video and told them to take it away and find the fault or don’t bring it back we rejected the car but Dealer refused.

I have had the dilemma this summer - 'replace or extend warranty'. I, like you, will not run a DS without the factory and dealer support and decided that mounting mileage would accelerate deprecation and increase the chance of "issues" so 19MY is on order for September delivery before 3rd birthday of current car!!

Responding to the original post, I had smells of exhaust fumes in the cabin. Car had 3000 miles

Dealer diagnosed as cracked inlet manifold and leaking injector and replaced both.

No exhaust smell after that

There were a huge number with this issue. The smoke came during the DPF regent cycle about every 1500 Miles. A gasket was omitted during assembly. Of course JLR denied this and blamed the dealer for losing it during investigations.

My 2.0 65 reg has just started with this same fault. Returned to dealership and have been told the issue is due to a faulty section by the catalytic converter. Cat and 19 other parts need to be changed to fixed the problem. Unfortunately there is a part on back order so still in a courtesy car from the dealership. Dealership have been great did not seem surprised by the fault.

They used my 65 as a guinea pig to find what the fault was. A shame that it took nine months and we now drive a Ford Kuga.

I'm after a bit of advice if thats ok. I've got a 65 plate, 2.0 litre diesel. It had it's first MOT and the end of the warranty in December. Just before that, I had a DEF warning come up on the dashboard. When they had it in, they ended up having to replace the DPF and the pipes, and they also put a few software updates on it.

Now, we're getting a really strong burning smell both inside and outside of the car whenever it's driven for more than twenty minutes. Coupled with that, I'm getting low battery warnings (which I seem to get after any time it goes into the dealer!) and this morning have also now got "parking aid not available, please contact dealer".

I rang the dealer up, but they said they can only see in on March 11th. When I said that I wasn't sure, with the burning smell, whether the car was even driveable, they asked if I had extended warranty (I don't, only the five year service pack) and they couldn't suggest anything apart from to call a breakdown service through my insurance.

Should I be expecting to pay to get this fixed as the car is now out of warranty? Or should I be expecting the dealer to sort it given they only replaced the part less than two months ago?
