Picked up my new velar today from Farnell Land Rover in Bolton. D300 R Dynamic all the bells and whistles First thing the sales lady said was that the front and rear mudflaps and the activity key are on back order and the car would have to come back on Friday to be completed. No prior warning of this. So after a rushed handover I drove away.
Whilst on the motorway I felt my seat and the cabin getting very hot, (even though I’d not touched any settings) went into the lower screen and it had froze, great! I pulled off the motorway got out, locked it, left it for 5 minutes and started it again. The lower screen had come back on but the sunroof shade was opening and closing without pressing anything.
Got home to find a rather large scratch On the bonnet, amateur attempt to cover it up.
Then tried to register in control, and a new car is registered to someone else?
So disappointed that I got home and haven’t looked at in since. Wish I’d kept my sport autobiography!
This is on top of an awful sales experience which is another story!
Buy one at your peril, dealers just want your cash. Had to many bad dealing with Range Rover over the years
Sorry to hear the issues you are having with your new car.
I have also had kinda had similar issues... but I am slowly realising that there are fixes, which I am figuring out myself (LR staff are largely pathetic).
My climate control started blowing hot air too, all by itself even when the temperature was set to 20! Later I realised that I had touched (by accident) and the air was now only blowing through the upper vents... I turned it back to 'Auto' and all was back to normal.
Regarding the frozen screen, I had that once, later I realised that there is a setting where one can personalise what one wants to see on start up... perhaps something to do with that...! I am still learning the settings on my car, and getting on top of things. LR sales guys were generally poor in their knowledge about their own product which is laughable. One sales man didn't want to demonstrate park assist to me and came up with stories that the insurance might not cover it... etc, until I insisted and then he called on a colleague of his to demo that for me! This guy also told me the lock symbol; underneath the ride height setting was to lock the screen... I suspect it is not, it to lock the ride height.
Hope to get your problems fixed... and fave fun with your new car! All the best!
