As do most, no 4wd needs no mods to get the most out of it, all other 4wds get a 2 inch lift, not required, all other 4wds get recovery points, not required as they come standard, all other 4wds get AT's at the least mmm same same.a standard D4 is going to struggle to tow in soft sand? Absolutely.
Some vast generalisations there but we understand you are a defensive rover owner. I drive a pretty standard company Ute which embarrassed it - let’s keep things in perspective.
It looks like they are turning the Defender into a Disco too....
I bet you actually touched the flappy paddles without you realising, that puts it in full manual mode. It also changes the D on the dash to the gear selected change to sport mode with the dial and back to D then it will go back into auto modeHi All, I am a new Land Rover Discovery 4 2016 owner. I have only driven the car 10,000kms (it had 110,000 on it when I got it) and had mostly been driven in the city. We have done a little bit of beach driving so far. Purchased the car as there are 6 of us and it reduces the fighting (well kind of). Recently the car seemed to get stuck in gear when I was coming off a set off lights. It revved to around 3,000 and would not change gear. I popped into in neutral and then back into drive and it corrected itself. I asked my local mechanic, what may have caused the problem, but he wasn't sure. Just reading through all the great information people offer on these forums and was hoping someone might be able to tell me - what happened and whether I should be concerned. Appreciate thoughts. Thanks Jem
