Hi from Leeds & Cornwall

Post by JDC » Thu Jul 22, 2021 4:23 pm

Hello all, new to the forum and did not want my first post to be a response to an ad!

2018 RR Velar D300 HSE, bought as approved used from LR in January and loving every minute of it. A few little niggles I am getting sorted under warranty, but very happy with it. Though I still some days miss my old 2010 LR Freelander 2 :lol:

Better then my old Freelander 2! I Tend to get somewhere around 43/44mpg overall out of a tank. Though it is going back in to the dealer for the fuel gauge to get sorted out. After the digital display was replaced I can not fill it up to full, just 3/4 and then it drops to half a tank in about 30 miles of driving, where it just seems to stay.

Quirks :D
