Re: Poll: Which engine/transmission are you looking at, or have purchased?

Had my RDesign T4 for 10 days now I am averaging 34mpg with mixed driving town and motorway used eco setting most of the time and considering it’s a new engine I am more than satisfied, after reading some of the horror stories on this forum mileage at present 295 Wow that's really good! I averaged ...

Re: T3 performance issues

We test drove a T3 manual (MY2019, so 150bhp) and a T5 auto. The T3 performed very similar to our current 2017 diesel Tiguan, if not a little quicker on the sprint. Obviously doesn't have the low down diesel grunt but still impressive for a small engine. We took the option of the MY2020 T3 manual (...

Re: My car is a turd.

Hi Senwar, that is exactly the noise I have. We went down to Cornwall a few weeks ago and it drove me mad the whole way down. Im really pedantic about rattles so the XC40 and I are not getting on very well! Good idea about the buyback as the values do seem to be incredibly strong. I'm the same with...

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...
