Hi rnlsg,

You are quite right ... there are good dealers out there.

On another point, I recall, whilst on a motorcycle police course, the police instructor told us that it costs councils loads of money to put in place the road signs. This being so, we should take proper note of road signs ... there is a good reason they are there! Getting back to the FL2, a lovely car, I was surprised to hear that Land Rover had installed an additional earth strap to the production vehicles from 2011(?). There was ,clearly, a reason for this mod. Let me guess Rolling Eyes ... the then current 'earthing' design or materials were NOT SATISFACTORY !!!

I would have been impressed with my local dealer and or Land Rover, I they had told me about this MOD at they time of my services and visits to them to discus the issues I had in cold weather... but they did not, and should have. That is what great customer service is all about, surely.

I do hope that Land Rover and LR dealers read this site ... they might pick up a few tips! Thumbs Up

England 2008 Freelander 2 TD4 HSE Auto Zermatt Silver

At -6 I had to jump the car after it failed to start and showed HDC fault. I fitted the earth strap on a cold afternoon a couple of weeks ago, today at -3 and after sitting for three days it started without a hint of sluggishness.
A great cheap fix that I wish I would have done during the spring as I had a couple of sluggish starts last winter and didn't know what the cause was.
Get it done while you can would be my advise , thanks to this forum for making it easy to sort.
