Common Faults and "things to look out for"

Well they've been out a while now and I suppose it can't be long before they start appearing on the second hand market..

Wondered if there was a list writing itself somewhere of common faults and "things to look out for when buying.."

Idly and intelectually curious..


 D3 K300NJH- still going strong
D3 K400NJH- gone to car heaven
FL1 - gone to Romania
D3 HD05- gone to a divorce diet
D1 V8 manual - gone but not forgotten
RR Classic - gone but not not forgotten
Too scared of listing the other marques for fear of ridicule

Watch out for knocking your head on the tailgate when it's open. Very Happy

I think J77 has had a few minor issues that needed sorting by the dealer. Thumbs Up

Think of everything that the D3/4 suffered with and you’ve got it covered Laughing

Mines had:

Recall for A pillar trim repaired

Plastic trim at 3rd row window fixed

Service warning, still no fix

Others have had problems with:

Incontrol Pro

Heating system

Cat flap not working

DEF quality warnings

Headlight shut lines

Didn't know a seperate site existed!

Don't disco3 and disco4 point at the same underlying database?

Or for when the D3 decides to terminally spit out its dummy!! Some day SWMBO will stop using the phrase "borrowed time" every time she sees a D3. Whistle Whistle
