The XE is now over 5 years into production so the honeymoon is over and we are going to start to see problems arising which we normally associate with "older" cars.

But hopefully not seeing all the “teething problems” on new cars that plagued it in the first five years!

I was thinking along the lines of worn track rod ends or bushes but you have beaten me to it .

59k seems to be a low mileage for worn bushes though . I suppose the condition of our roads wouldn't help .
I think the main problem is speed bumps. These days when car diy is mainly a thing of the past, most drivers have no idea what a track rod end or a suspension bush is and how much damage they are doing to suspension, tyres and steering components by going over these confounded monstrosities at more than walking pace.🤬🤬🤬
Yes the days of having to grease suspension joints and prop shaft Uj's are long gone .

In the wars with this car engine light back on saying no engine restarts in 515 miles diesel exhaust dosing malfunction? Garage has already changed the oxygen sensor from another engine light.

I believe sometimes issues related to DEF dosing can be as simple as the DEF injectors needing cleaning as the fluid can crystallise on them. I would take advantage of the fact you’re still reasonably covered for the first 6 months of a used car purchase (it sucks for the dealers, and I kind of feel for them especially the independent ones).

This dosing issue would probably have no effect on the car in day to day use it’s just the environmental regulations that mean JLR legally must stop the car from starting it would be nice if somebody could find a way to hack the software and increase the distance to 1,00,000 miles :lol:

There's a fairly lengthy previous thread on DEF messages.

I know the discussion has moved on a little to other topics, but related to the tires, I replaced a fairly new set of Pirelli P7 with a set of Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires yesterday and the difference is remarkable. Straight-line is a similar feel, but turn-in is sharper, and I can carry around 20% more speed through a corner (at least - I didn't yet find the limits of the new tires as I'm on public roads). Quite happy, and they were very well priced.
