It's not £600, it's £600 worth of options.
No it wasn’t. It was £600 of compensation for not having certain equipment fitted that should have been standard at the factory

Actually delivered to customers and then because there is “no fix” they are offering $600 compensation! Outrageous. I would be driving it straight back and getting my money back.

When are they finally going to learn how to build a car properly. To make it worse these are the cars contracted out in Austria.
£600? Imagine buying a new Luxury car with all that missing? Not even Apple and Android ICE?

LMAO
Hmmm that’s not great is it ?

Looks a class-action waiting to happen
That doesn't mention how many cars are affected - could be 10 cars for all we know?

It's always been a very good factory. One of the lads who used to work in our warehouse has been up there for ages working for DHL on the logistics side and finds it to be generally well run.

In other news, the all new 3 litre V6 Ingenium engine will be built at the JLR Wolverhampton engine plant: https://www.insidermedia.com/insider/midlands/jlrs...

Funny you should say that, I was wondering whether I'd not heard it was straight.

The engine in the picture (in the linked article) looked pretty 'boxy' so I assumed a V6.

And fk me! That's a straight six?!? Looks unbelievably boxy. Must be all the electrical and emissions gubbins I guess?



Good luck to them anyway.

All the ingenium engines are straight because they are modular and therefore the 4 has just been extended to a 6 and it will be chopped to a 3 as well.

It might as well be. It's in Speke and has a Liverpool postcode....

Nope. It's in Halewood.

It's in the Liverpool postal area, but then so was Southport until they won their campaign to get it changed.

I don't suppose there are statistics published, but I'd be gobsmacked if Scousers aren't in the minority there.

What most people think of as a scouser and what a scouser really is though are two different things. It’s a bit like being born in east London does not necessarily make you a cockney

Here's an alternative analysis of JLR's "challenging market conditions in China" -

It says the luxury car market rose 8%, while the general market fell for the first time in 28 years. JLR's competitors, including Lexus, Volvo, Audi, Cadillac, Mercedes and BMW increased their sales in the same period...

And the bottom line is this really is where the issue lies. JLR still aren't making them properly. Until they get their own house in order, they can't point the blame at any other 'challenging conditions'. I personally think some of their products are very stylish but this isn't good enough as a purchasing proposition.

I saw not one but three LR products on the back of AA lorries on the M1 yesterday, one being a black 68 plate full fat Range Rover.
Someone else mentioned underbody/chassis corrosion on F Types as well and googling to reveals that yes, they can rust like a bean can.

The plight of the X Type seems to mirror that of the XE as well:
