Hard to believe that wouldn't be an active feature if you added the correct package. If it doesn't work, seems like a huge liability for JLR

sooo......is the older model less dependable, or is the only difference is that it is in 4WD all the time?

Where are you guys reading about autonomous braking failure?
Yea, I'd like to know about that, too. I asked early on in this forum about it (how to test to see if it works because I don't have adaptive cruise control and can't set following distance). I think, but I'm not sure, that it might have stopped me backing up into something, but I that may just me hitting the brake when the car screams at me when something starts coming by when I'm backing up. The ABF I thought was a front-facing braking issue, one that is triggered by the camera mounted by the rear view mirror, or at least that's when the dealer told me triggers it. Thanks.

I'm also curious about seeing more information on that brake failure, for now those really concerned should call up the dealer and see if they have a technical service bulletin they're willing to share on it... that is of course if they have already identified the issue.

My SA must have lied because he said the 2016 DS I am getting has the ability to decouple the front and rear axles under highway conditions to save on fuel...

Can't wait - less than 24 hours to pick up the 2016 HSE DS

Actually I think your SA did not lie about that. I found that my DS did decouple the front and rear axles when I was on highway (according to the screen when you select "4X4") a few days ago.

Ah, I saw that on the 4x4 screen too.:laugh:


But I have a question - when the terrain response lights are not lit at all, does that mean it is in 2WD ?

I was driving in regular driving mode. However, I also e-mailed the Senior Executive Liaison of LR North America, he/she told me that DS models simply do NOT come with active driveline. I've sent him/her the following site.
New Discovery Sport: The most capable, versatile premium compact SUV
He/She said that it's a global website. wtf

No wonder that global LR video was deceiving - they showed the Discovery Sport having magnetorheo suspension and wade sensors from the mirrors.

I asked about that at the dealer and they were stumped. The GM said it was for other countries...:crying:
