Great advice, exactly where would this noise be, as I don't hear it? My wife complains of a rattle but does not know where its coming from??????
some folks say they dont hear a tick, but this could be for a few reasons. we know they are all made the same way, at the same Halewood plant, using the same materials, thus it is high probability that all DS's are prone to this tick issue. some have reported it comes and goes with seasonal temp changes, other say its there all the time.This tick thing sounds pretty darn intrusive as an irritation. If the only resolution is to "stomach" it, doesn't seem too flashy and attractive.
I don't believe the center screen you are speaking about is the same I reported. I am talking about the 5in or so screen in between the tach and speesometer. It is now rounded graphic like the Evoque and even the turn signals are loud like the evoque.Plenty of pictures of the new center screen on the internet---and remember that's only if you get the Entertainment Pack option. If you don't specify the option, everything is like it was before from what I understand. And that Entertainment Pack option is a whopping THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS. SHeesh.
The screen is wider and you have some different displays. Great...$3k. No thanks. haha.
if you opt for the infotainment pro system you also cannot get some of the safety feature options, so choose wisely. it is kinda baffling however that JLR has somehow engineered available safety features based on what infotainment system you get, this makes zero sense to me.I don't believe the center screen you are speaking about is the same I reported.

they'll probably tell you that its not a lemon, that they have a fix for it. you can then tell them their fix is a safety hazard and will negatively impact the value of the vehicle, as does the annoying tick. Lemon Law applies in this case. i myself would not buy a used DS that had the tick-TSB fix done to it (unless i needed the DS just for on-the-farm use).I am going to get service for the rattle issues again this week.
1) The tailgate noise started again so it is going to be my 3rd fix, which is leading to Lemon Law finally.
2) And, in the last service, they didn't agree with me that B-pillar was making noise. Now, I can easily reproduce the noise. Making a left turn it is. Or, driving on a rough road will reproduce the b-pillar noise too. I will share what their reaction to Lemon Law would be.
Please check this doc regarding Lemon Law in CA, where I live. http://www.dca.ca.gov/acp/pdf_files/englemn.pdf If they failed to fix the same warranty issue four or more attempts, it is regarded as lemon. I agree with your concern of losing reselling value, and I believe not many buyers would notice the b-pillar ticking when I sell my car. However, I just can't drive this car with the tickings one more year.they'll probably tell you that its not a lemon, that they have a fix for it. you can then tell them their fix is a safety hazard and will negatively impact the value of the vehicle, as does the annoying tick.

Value and safety preempts the TSB, because executing the TSB inherently will impact value and safety of the vehicle. thus should be covered under your lemon law.The problems are covered by the warranty, substantially reduce the vehicle’s use, value, or safety to the consumer and are not caused by abuse of the vehicle;
i would bet ya, if you presented this quote in arbitration you are likely to win the case. since the TSB provides many unknowns and no safety data from the maker post TSB, the assumption that can be made is; there is known probability that the TSB does impact safety because the vehicle is now at a point that is not as originally designed nor originally produced from Halewood.Value and safety preempts the TSB, because executing the TSB inherently will impact value and safety of the vehicle. thus should be covered under your lemon law.
I have a 2017 HSE as well and was told by dealership I had it. Its actually in the shop right now because the motion sensing liftgate isnt working. Neither are my keys. Let see what they say maybe i will get the same explanation.So to get back to the original post...
I noticed that my HSE was spec'd with the motion sensing liftgate, but it's not on the vehicle. I was told these are early iterations and this option won't be present until later assembly dates. Does anyone actually have a touchless rear hatch/liftgate?
side stitched, stronger, epoxy ??Are you an engineer, I'm a 4G certified welder in stick and wire feed and this seems like a perfectly legit repair, it's not rocket science! As long as you don't over heat the effected area it will be fine and actually stronger than the original with the side stitch welds. For that matter you could use a two part bonding epoxy like they use on alloy Jag panels and it would be just fine!
I thought the 2018 is sporting the new Ingenium engines ???Hi there....I have the option of purchasing a stock DS 2017 SE model with delivery very soon or waiting until November for the 2018 model....does anyone know what changes they have made between the years models....>>
