Re: Too many defects

It’s not a dealer issue... dealer and service should only recognise the fault and replace. The problem is from factory since there was no quality control in my case with so many defects. Really awful for a premium automaker. The sad side of the story is that I was told Rattles are normal and humidi...

Re: Can't wait to get rid

I'm also very very allergic to rattles and a bad audio system, especially with a new car ! So that would also be big issues for me, but hopefully it doesn't come that far. Myself I'm driving a new Peugeot 5008 and in the beginning it also had a rattle that drove me nuts but "we" (myself not the dea...

Re: Standard XC 40 Stereo

I am very disappointed with the HK system. That amount of claimed power through that many speakers should be able to blow the windows out, but it is nowhere near that. The phone is actually quite difficult to hear at times. The only positive I can hear is that it is distortion free - but, then agai...

Re: Can't wait to get rid

I know people talk about their problems on forums (and not so much about the good stuff) but I'm getting a bit scared when reading all this (and other subjects) regarding the XC40 my wife has ordered. On receiving the car I will look for visible problems and make reservations if so but the main pro...

Re: Can't wait to get rid

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2015/15/contents/enacted The above may help ( taken off the Jaguar forum so all manufacturers have their issues, some more than others obviously ). Real shame when this happens but stay calm, know your rights and you should get things sorted. I have no idea where...

Re: Can't wait to get rid

I would imagine you would have to go through the supplying dealer initially, I ended up going through a combination of the dealer and the manufacturer. Depending on the mileage they may / can make a small deduction, I took a hit of about £100 in the end, on both cars, can’t remember the exact milea...

Re: Can't wait to get rid

Sorry to hear you've been having problems. It must be so frustrating and disappointing. Generally vehicle dealers get paid very little, if any, diagnosis time on warranty repairs, hence their (bad) attitude. That is their problem not yours though. A change of dealer may make all the difference. Alt...

Re: Can't wait to get rid

Hi As long as your under the 6 month timescale you should be fine. I rejected my last 2 new cars, gave them 3 chances to repair ( but didn’t need to give so many ) In the end they offered me a replacement vehicle which I refused as didn’t want to risk another. One was a Jaguar F pace, the other a P...

Can't wait to get rid

I am beginning to hate this car. It's been in to the dealership three times for the stereo problems and each time it hasn't been fixed. Originally the air-woofer was defective and replaced. Then it was the air inlet that needed replacing so they did something behind the dash and most of the rattling...
