I appreciate roadsters comments but JLR need to take a look at other manufacturers who seem to be able to get it right. Or take a look at the aviation industry. Glad JLR don't make aircraft!
Fair enough but how many zeros would be added to the price if cars were made to aircraft standards?

I wonder if this is a factor in the statement made on the local Midlands news this lunchtime that Land Rover sales were down against 2017 by 6% to just under 78000 total, yet Jaguar sales were up 4% overall to 37000. More attention to quality being focused on the big cat brand perhaps?
Hmm - I took delivery of a brand new F-Pace in October and I have now covered 3,500 odd miles. (The DS is my wife's)
Faults to date = zero.
Rattles = zero
Build quality = excellent; no issues

I have ITCP which is far better than my expectations, plus I had Apple CarPlay enabled in December (free) and that works brilliantly too. (ITCP is way faster than the MMI system I had in my previous 2016 £42k Audi).

The only thing I don't like is that there was no option to have all season tyres factory fitted, so have Pirelli P Zeros which are hard as nails.

Overall I'm very happy with it. Oh, and distance to service is declining neatly in line with miles covered.
