Re: I-Pace Awarded Car of the Year 2019 at Geneva Motor Show

I spent yesterday at the Geneva motor show and JLR had no stand or presence there at all.
The subject of some amusement from BMW and MERCEDES that the I pace had won a prestigious award but the company who make it ... well who knows what will happen to them.

Re: JLR in trouble?

I just wonder if this “Investment “ announcement is to counteract the fact that part of Tata wants rid of JLR.

Any offers?

Re: JLR in trouble?

Rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic comes to mind. It is doubtful that this investment can in the short term reverse the gigantic losses being suffered from falling sales and mounting warranty claims to deal with the ongoing quality issues.

Re: iPace - anyone seen in the flesh on the road?

My dealer loaned me their demo I Pace for a day when my XF was having the ICTP upgrade and Apple play added recently. Fantastic driving experience and potential licence looser! Build quality excellent but far too expensive for me to consider one new. Followed another I Pace during the day and in my ...

Re: JLR in trouble?

Give JLR a break! UK manufacturing has been fighting these issues for the last 30 years I should know and despite negligible support from UK investors has managed to survive. JLR are producing world beating products in extremely difficult conditions. I drove past a new I-Pace today - what a stunnin...

Re: JLR in trouble?

I well remember my old boss saying FISH OR CUT BAIT and I think that the time has come for JLR to do just this.
No Company can sustain losses of this magnitude.

Re: Apple Carplay

Just had 18 C D. or whatever applied which has given me Apple Play,Google Maps and a whole lot of other things plus a much more pro active screen with Icons from my phone at no charge under warranty. The CD player does not freeze any more either. My dealer noticed that the rear brake discs had a rus...

Re: Brake wear

I understand that JLR Dealer service departments have a way of obtaining service and warranty history which could give them a clue to the previous user of a JLR vehicle. It could be intentional or not that sales people do not want this information and can pass off any JLR Oxford registered vehicle p...
