    Default Problems with the 2019 Land rover discover 5 SE V6 diesel?

    Hi everyone. Any reports on problems with the 2019 Land rover discover 5 SE V6 diesel.?

    Just wondering because my husband has had problems from 1000 kilometers. There is a book bigger than a telephone book of problems.. Stared small with decals falling off..and endless suspension problems.. There is just to many things to mention. Car wash bought at one dealership and serviced at the same on.. Now it's on 44 000km.. Nee gearbox new transfer box and know it needs a complete new steering rack. Car is more at land rover than what we have the pleasure to drive it.

    Not many D5 owners here. I know two owners with zero problems. Why havenít you taken this up with LR customer care or the DP of the dealership? Make noise, throw toys etc.

    .. This problem is with JLR south Africa.. DP we have had so many meetings and it's just not getting anywhere. DP just said will buy the car back art R800 000 so we left with lost of almost R750 000. They keep on repairing the car and leave us with a SHM Land rover so like you all know it's like a car hire but JLR pays for it but if something happens there is payment of R20 000 for insurance. So that leaves us with paying for a car that ends up standing at land rover most of the time.

    I dont drive a land rover but if they come to the party everytime and repair the issues and offer assurances that the repairs are covered for a decent period then stick with the car.Once you get to a point where you can trade to get out of it then consider that option

    But the issues must stop at some point. Why then buy a brand new car if the problems started at 1000km and just got more and bigger and know at 44 000km it's still not right. Or am I missing a point.

    It's at that point where we can't plan a weekend.. Because there is no more trust in the vehicle we are paying a monthly payment for vehicle we are not driving..

    Well except for the engine most of the bigger things have now been replaced.Im sure its not nice to have issues like that on a vehicle with such a price tag.If however they can guarantee that the fixed items will no longer pose any problems i cant see what else could really go wrong after this.I suppose there must be a point where you must say enough is enough.
    However that offered buyback price is not even an option.
    Have you maybe try to go higher up at LR to see if someone is willing to listen and offer beter options?

    Seems crazy for them to offer it, it sounds more like a "go away" offer than a "lets service the customer" offer. I can understand your frustration here...

    I have driven Landrovers for the last 25 years. Defenders, Freelanders and then a D4 XS. Best of all was the D4.

    1. They do not like buying their cars back. All Mine where sold privately then I went back with cash in hand.
    2. Always had good service with my local branch, East London.
    3. Why do I now drive Toyota Reasons given to me while sitting in the pool at Nossob.

    a) I will get most of my money back.
    b) LR service agents are far apart. Where I travel I will wait many hours for a rollback maybe even days.
    c) Where ever you are in SA there will be an agent close by or someone in the camp/caravan park that will get you going.
    d) Deepest Africa is the last place you need to breakdown in a Landy.
    e) At Sussosvlei I was the only Disco in the carpark, surrounded by at least 50 Toyos. Makes you think.
    f) Too expensive. Out of my bracket.
    g) After the service plan you will sweat blood when a simple service is done.

    I miss my Disco, but am growing into my kitted Hilux.

    You have a very high level of patience with JLR.

    I donít think I would have been as patient with them as you seem to be.

    I think the answer is pretty simple. Strike some kind of deal with them to get out of this damn vehicle and into another vehicle.

    Its no good starting a road trip or similar and you are already stressing about the vehicle reliability before you have left home. I mean whatís the point of having the lemon then?

    Lemons of this kind never turn into peaches.

    Exactly where I got to three years ago after driving LR since 1997. I never got into the vehicle wondering if we would ever get to where we were going.

    My daughter, now 21, still gets anxious when having to go on a long trip regardless of the vehicle due to the number of times we were stranded at the side of the road.

    good grief... sounds like a Friday afternoon vehicle.

    I'd suggest you go see a lawyer and get them to send JLR a nicely-worded letter to the effect that they need to take their p.o.s D5 back and give you another one (minus kms used).

    I had to resort to this in 2011 when they refused to acknowledge that my Puma's steering was not right from the factory.

    The car is just over 2 years old and has done 44 000km, seems to me that you got decent service out of the LR even with all the issues.

    That said, I know this is not a nice situation. Friend of mine had issues with his LX450d. First issue was at 2000ks and reoccurred at 3500ks. At this point he immediately insisted on a new vehicle and after throwing his toys and squatting in the DP's office, Lexus finally agreed to replace the vehicle. The longer you tolerate the issues the less likely the manufacturer is to come to the party.

    Personally, I would declare fullscale war in a situation like this (the type where you drink wine from the skulls of your enemy😇&#128519. Do not care what opinions may be out there, it is an unacceptable situation. I actually think you have been much too tolerant.

    A vehicle like this and you are not in a position to go away for the weekend without wondering if you will get there (or back). A Datsun Go at a fraction of the cost will get you there and back. Nothing to do with the brand, can happen to any manufacturer.

    Open hostilities and have at them.

    Am I right in calculating that you paid R1.55m for this vehicle?

    A quick google search (let alone this forum) would have informed you very quickly that it was not a good option in the first place.

    But then again, being under full manufacturer warranty for 5 years or 100,000km should give you peace of mind.

    Good luck, I hope it all works out amicably in the end.
