DPF Again

DPF blockage is back, even after a replacement and only 20 miles after a 100 mile motorway journey.

On a positive note I managed to get an F-TYPE 3.0 R Supercharger or whatever it may be called as a courtesy car from LR assist. It's an incredibly fun car to drive and the engine noise is just music to my ears. They have a 2 week backlog of breakdowns to fix so doesn't look like they will be getting this baby back until at least after Xmas.

Well this has well and truly confused my car changeover plan. Had planned to order a MY18 RRS again which would set me back 75k.

Alternatively can get a demonstrator 730d M Sport for 40k, AND a 15 plate F-TYPE R for 35k. Giving me best of both worlds. At least the BMW won't break down (or at least shouldn't) MY16 (65) RRS, HSE, White, 21" 507s, Pan/Black Roof, 7 Seats, Ebony/Cirrus, Surround Cams, Fully Color Coded

2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

The Grand Tour are running a 2.0ltr F Type Coupe as their equivalent to “A Star in a reasonably priced car” this series - sounds OK on the outside and pretty quiet inside but I know that unlike the bigge engined F Types the induction sounds and exhaust sounds are electronically made.........
Have you seen the depreciation of any F Type? It is huge as in mega that’s why you can buy very very low miles pre-reg ones very cheaply - you used to be order your used F Type from the factory too! But.......... it is still a beautiful car which ever engine is in it. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring
2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, the best car I have ever owned, totally reliable only a cou0le of rattles in 3 years, now no longer in my care
Also in my garage is a 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT made into a fake CSW

“Electronically made” - only insofar as controlled injection overlap and a symposer, a tube from the engine into the cabin, isn’t it?

Don't kid yourself - other marques have their issues as well. Plenty of well-behaved RRS out there, you just don't see people reporting about them on forums such as this, only the problem children.

The OPs car obviously has an issue that is causing the DPF blockages, and I wonder if it is over fuelling due to air leaks on the induction side. Not many people know that intake air leaks can cause DPF issues.

So far, it would appear his Dealer has treated the symptoms rather than their root cause. MY2016 HSE D SDV6 - gone due to fuel dilution problems.

I do get amazed when posters compare choice of a 4WD with a car. Must be I think 4WD as fit for purpose and others think it's all about ??? M16 SVD 4,4 HSE with a few extras, Sold R50 , Wife SQ5 , BMW R1200GSW.

More importantly synthetically made engine and exhaust noises. Anybody who buys cars with these should be sent to Madamme Guillotine. Any car with this is a Play Station Car not a real one.

Well I have given up hope that the dealer will ever sort this. After a regeneration sometimes just a day of driving in town (about 30 miles) can cause a blockage. The robots at JLR are preprogrammed to blame driving style. I argued that if a car with a freshly regerenated DPF cannot cope with a day's driving in town, then that car isn't fit for purpose. The technician's responded again "....must be driving style". I did ask him never to use the words "driving style" in my presence again unless he wanted to sustain some serious injuries.

As rejecting a vehicle after 27 months isn't an option what other remedies can JLR offer for customers with problematic vehicles. MY16 (65) RRS, HSE, White, 21" 507s, Pan/Black Roof, 7 Seats, Ebony/Cirrus, Surround Cams, Fully Color Coded

They are probably waiting for the crankshaft to snap then they will charge you for a new engine as it’s not covered under warranty then that will probably fix the dpf problem,,,,at a price of around 20k though.

My sons two and a half year old Audi A6 Quattro 3.0 l has just had a new engine fitted under warranty after 60,000 miles at a cost of £31k so JLR don’t have the monopoly on break downs
