Nightmare Revisited

Post by The Highlander » Mon Apr 16, 2018 12:48 pm

Well, part ex’d My DS, got a new LR with faults, dealership has taken it away by transporter today and left me with a curtesy car!

This is like Groundhog Day meets Nightmare on Elm Street. Same colour, specs as my trade in apart from no heated rear seats. Where is my paper bags with holes cut in for the eyes. :shock:

You have my deepest sympathy Highlander and hope you get what you paid for - bloody long way on a trailer to Ullapool!

It seemed like a double decker 8 car transporter. The driver told me he was going to Wick before heading south. Think you basically book a space on the trailer, so other jobs along with mine. I’d hope he would avoid single track roads, but not my problem. :roll:

Ullapool to Wick then wherever u got the car from - that's one hell of a trip and from memory the A9 beyond Dornoch is a bit lumpy!

Highlander, what can I say except I sincerely hope that you get it fixed to your satisfaction. Or will you reject it and move on to another marque?

Yep, think he was going back to Dingwall, then over e Ord, but you’re right, past Dornoch it gets interesting. If you hear of a LR departed company from a car transporter up Berridale Braes, you’ll know who’s it is. Takes me back to when SWMBO was on placement in Caithness and wouldn’t drive up there, so I had to take and collect her every week. :roll:

Thanks Chippy, me too. I discovered another bit of bodywork amiss today when I checked it prior to the transporter - front bumper in the area of the headlight, but only visible when viewed from above, not from the front, must have been at manufacture.

Oh and I’ve discovered the DS is a 240 rather than a 180. Can’t tell the difference personally.

Sorry to hear this Highlander. Only issues with mine are InControl bugs and the media ports not recognising the phone and intermittent power through them. Having the software reloaded tomorrow so hope it fixes them. Mechanically so far so good and no missing bits I’m aware of. Could be as it ex LR managment so went through a closer pre delivery inspection ?

So I take it you ordered a TD180 and got a SD240 ?
Wow - that’s incredible !

Hope you get sorted.
