Oh that's interesting? What do you need when calling them, the order number? And which factory? I'm based in Ireland but suppose it will be in the UK :)
I actually called the JLR Customer Experience Centre at the Halewood plant and said I was interested in booking a factory tour if it could be coincided with the build of my car. The next question was……..can you tell me if/when my car is scheduled to be built (which, as it turned out, had already began. We shouldn’t have to be so shady but there is almost zero link between the factory and JLR HQ / Dealerships. Audi/BMW etc keep you bang up to date every step of the way. And that includes each phase of the build process (chassis/paint/QC) etc.

Oh, to answer your question, I just needed my order number.

I was due to pick up my car tomorrow, all the paperwork was completed online, car insured, all set to go…then a call from the dealer telling me JLR have told the dealer not to release the car as they have identified a problem with the wiring harness on a batch. So maybe a few days delay. Not a great start….the cars got a problem before I’ve got it!

Oh no!! Mine is due at the end of this month 🤞
I wonder if mine will be in the same batch as it was due mid month but it’s pushed back to the end May/beginning of June. The customer experience centre said it was scheduled to start build on the 4th May but the Vista sheet is still showing it as committed to build.

I hope you manage to get yours soon!!!

So the problem relates to a wiring harness pin that connects to an airbag. Next update from JLR not until 23 May.

Before you leave the dealership make sure everything works! I got mine a month today and the dealer has had it for nearly 2 weeks fixing the gestured tailgate that didn’t work when they did the demo :mad: It was lovely to drive when I had it 🤣

Both my previous BMW SUVs were the same. It’s just an iffy piece of sensor tech that either works (properly) or not. Tbh, it’s more hassle (99.9% of the time) than hitting the fob or touching the boot open/close button.

My Gesture tailgate works randomly aswell lol i just use the fob or button on the boot, i certainly wouldnt spec gesture tailgate if it wasn't as standard on any future orders.

Had the car 3 weeks now and absolutely love it, its great to drive very comfy and turns heads what more can I as for :)

Mine has never worked not even for the numerous sales staff that tried to demo it during my handover, hence why its back with them supposedly being fixed. They thought they’d fixed the problem only to discover that it only worked when the key wasn’t in a pocket or bag and less than 2 inches from the boot, which even the dealer admitted wasn’t acceptable. They’ve blamed the battery in the key, the onboard computer and are now adding an additional part to the sensors. Supposedly this is the first time the dealer“s had the problem. I”ll let you know if the solution works 🤪

There is a smart key transmitter in the tailgate. If that has failed the next closest are in the rear doors. That would tie in with gesture only working with the fob close to the boot as the fob is probably getting a weak signal.

The car has finally arrived at the dealership and I have got Update 4 in my inbox! Agreed a collection for Tuesday lunchtime……..and then a drive back to Edinburgh (from Peterborough 😏). Shame that I head off on my holidays the next day so I won’t be able to enjoy it 😂😂😂
Arrival picture with protective strips still on pillars etc. first impression……..positive. 😎
