But its the most capable and comfortable lemon on the marketAnd another one bites the dust. 37 out of its first 90 days in the dealer getting fixed.
It's worse still!
Emergency braking and emergency steering not available - drive with caution, smart key not working, the old coolant problem, cameras missing, adaptive 4wd mode not working, steering assistance not available, A problem has occurred with the remote climate, try again later, Traction failure. This one is a hamburger with the lot.
How embarrassing for LR
The features a complete gimmick anyway what’s the difference if it does or doesn’t work? This feature is to show the other dads at soccer in the car park and not actually use off road because in my experience knowing Water is too deep once I’m already in it is kind of pointless.The worlds most useless car feature. It doesn't even give you the right depth. Nice trick to show your mates at the Polo Club car park though.
they really don’t do themselves any favours adding useless crap like thisThe worlds most useless car feature. It doesn't even give you the right depth and you have to acknowledge the warning at every water crossing to keep the Land River Lawyers happy. Then it turns off if you get to 10kmph and you have to stop ( in the middle of a river crossing) to restart it.
It's just a distraction from driving - when you need to concentrate most. Not sure why you can't just look out the window to see how deep you are.
Nice trick to show our mates at the golf club car park if there are puddles there. It really is a 4wd for people who will never ever go 4wding but like to think they do. It will get a lot of use around South Melbourne where the road under the tramway floods a lot though.
Old farmer Harry thought they were alright but is choking on the price. He also made the comment of selling his Range Rover because this does everything it does which again demonstrates how they have cannibalised their own market
If they had kept it more in line with say a Mercedes Professional / G series that is more utilitarian sprinkled with some nice creature comforts they would of opened up to a new market of buyers instead of just stealing sales from themselves
Especially since they pack 175 dealers in England alone. 130 thouand Sq km, and half the size of Victoria. No more than a 45 minute tow to a service center and on bitumen roads.Poor farmer Harry is a multiple millionaire with a garage full of exotics he doesn't have to worry about unreliability.
This IS the Defender "New Defender, observations and opinions of the available information" thread isn't it? I know a few here only like to hear good reports. And there are plenty of those too.
Yep, a couple, do you also want to quote the long thread "This must be embarrassing for Land Rover" which makes this one look like a teddy bear's picnic. With comments in that thread like - 5 Owners refuse to give the service loan cars back to the dealer because theirs can never be fixed. Admittedly this comment appears to be about Disco 5's.The couple of owners on Aulro are very happy so far with no issues.
