Totally understand my friend, I would be severely p Censored d off if I’d paid that kind of money for a D5 so I understand your frustration. Not a good advert for Land Rover so if they stumble across your posts let’s hope they take note Thumbs Up

United Kingdom 2015 Discovery 4 3.0 SDV6 SE Auto Santorini BlackDiscovery 4

The main thing Land Rover at the moment are lacking in is good old reliability it's continually at the lower end of scale compared to the Japanese etc and seem to recall somewhere things will change with new cars coming onto the market against outgoing freelancers/D4/RR......
Well 2/3 years on nothings changed What car and others knock them for warranty & reliability but haven't given feedback as to why?
Or is it all about ££££££ don't care attitude as they are still selling well?...

I can't readily find any Disco5 sales numbers for Oct 2017,


October figures




what are these figures? worldwide sales?




Whats going on in the UK, 18% drop in sales? Brexit turmoil?

I suspect Australia is heading for some form of economic correction, every economic indicator turned negative in Aug/sept, YoY luxury car sales down 10%, retail sales dropped, ATM transactions at one of our largest bank dropped 20% in a month and the 55 year run up of Sydney house prices came to an end.

a entry level house in a respectable suburb in Sydney is around 1,500,000 pounds.

United Kingdom 2011 Discovery 4 3.0 SDV6 XS Auto Zermatt SilverDiscovery 4

Taken from a press release I've just read:

Quote:
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) sales in the UK slumped in October according to new figures released by the car making giant.

The company said "difficult market conditions" led to retail sales being down 18 per cent in the UK compared to October 2016, while sales were down 3 per cent in Europe and the US.

However, JLR continued to perform well in China with sales up 12 per cent. Other overseas markets also increased by 16 per cent.

Overall JLR sold 46,418 vehicles in October, up 0.2 per cent year-on-year. It said there had been "solid sales" of all models, including the new Range Rover Velar and the Jaguar F-PACE.

Andy Goss, JLR group sales operations director, added: "It's pleasing to see our global sales have been maintained year on year in October, despite facing increasingly challenging conditions in our key UK, US and European markets."

Jaguar retail sales were 12,336 vehicles in October, down 14 per cent on 2016 while Land Rover retailed 34,082 vehicles last month, up seven per cent.

England 2016 Discovery 4 3.0 SDV6 HSE Lux Auto Waitomo GreyDiscovery 4

Quote:
Jaguar Land Rover Automotive plc today reported a 38 per cent increase in second-quarter pre-tax profits to £385 million in the three months to September 30, 2017. Revenues were up 11.5 per cent to £6.3 billion with an increase in margin (EBIT) of 1 per cent to 5.2 per cent.

Higher sales and profits reflect the continuing ramp-up of new models such as the Range Rover Velar, Land Rover Discovery, Jaguar XF Sportbrake, Jaguar F-PACE and, in China, the Jaguar XFL. Retail sales grew 5.1 per cent to 149,690, with increases in China (27.4 per cent) and the US (5.1 per cent) offsetting lower sales in the UK and Europe.

Prof. Dr Ralf Speth said: “We have delivered solid growth in quarterly profit and revenues amid rising demand for our award-winning products. Although we are facing headwinds and uncertainty in some markets, Jaguar Land Rover is well positioned to deliver further global expansion.”

As part of our ongoing product offensive, manufacturing expansion and new technology programme, our investment spending was more than £1 billion in the second quarter. Investment spending for the full year is expected to exceed £4 billion.

Dr Speth concluded: “Our product portfolio continues to excite and surprise. The all-new Land Rover Discovery is now on sale everywhere and exciting new and existing customers, while the new Velar, the fourth Range Rover, is now enticing a new audience and helping to drive sales growth.

“Looking ahead to the rest of the year, we will continue to focus on our strategic objective of achieving profitable, sustainable growth and will continue to adapt and innovate in the current challenging market conditions.”



Seems sales are ok.

Okay-ish; it’s a well written statement, given the difficult trading conditions in the US, Europe and the UK.

Nice central number plate and symmetrical design, however more likely to be a mule for a hybrid powertrain

No facelift, there were rumours of tailgate redesign for 18MY but still retains its current setup, all that’s been added is the option of a 2.0 Si4 ingenium petrol, digital dash and Incontrol Pro now standard on all models.
