How to Deal With a Suspended Driving License / Personal_Finance / Motoring

By: Anwar_Hossain

If you have a suspended driving license, it means your driving rights have been withdrawn temporarily, because of driving under the influence of drugs (DUIs) or having no car insurance.

It is a crime to drive a vehicle when your driving license has been revoked according to the California Vehicle Code 14601 VC. Besides, you can face severe suspensions from both federal courts and the California Department of Motor vehicles (DMV). The good news is that there are ways to reinstate your driver’s license.

Land Rover Discovery Sport Rear View Reverse Camera Test / Personal_Finance / Motoring

By: N_Walayat

Here's a test of the Land Rover Discovery Sports rear view reversing camera installed as standard on HSE and above, whilst available as optional extras on lower trims for the DISCO Sport model. We compare what is shown on the Disco's display against what is actually happening as you reverse your car i.e. how well does the screen display and warning bars compare against how much space you actually have left i.e. too much space and your not parking properly! Too little space which would be disastrous!

Land Rover Discovery Sport Oil Service Interval at 12,000, 14000 or 21,000 Miles? / ConsumerWatch / Motoring

By: N_Walayat

Land Rover's sales pitch is that the Discovery Sport's first service is due at 21,000 miles or 2 years, thus saving owners on expensive services. That and their service packs only tend to cover for 1 service every 2 years which may be the reason for the 21,000 miles service sales pitch. Unfortunately on the one hand there's the sales pitch and then there's the reality of what to actually expect when owning and driving a Land Rover Discovery Sport as there exists a wide gap between the two.

Here's a report on what the Land Rover Discovery Sports rattling / knocking sounds are like that emanate from one or more of the car's pillars when driving, usually at it's noisiest from the passenger side pillar C. Which given the number of comments about this issue online is coming to be known as the 'Rattle Pack'. Anyway if your thinking of buying a Disco Sport then be on alert for rattling noises when test driving, as this car was rattling from day 1!

Jaguar Land Rover Cuts 1000 Jobs on Diesel Sales Slump, Long-term Discovery Sport Review / ConsumerWatch / Motoring

By: N_Walayat

Britains biggest car maker Jaguar Land Rover has axed 1000 jobs from their Midlands car factories following a 26% slump in sales on Brexit and Diesel engines future uncertainty and the emissions scandals that will now bring the JLR work force to under 40,000. The Job losses will virtually wholly hit the Range Rover and Discovery range of vehicles, a huge loss of demand that on an annualsied basis would translate into a loss of demand of more than 150,000 vehicles on total 2017 sales of 620,000.

Z-Edge S3 Dual Car Dash Cam Review - Full Specifications / / Motoring

By: HGR

The Z-Edge S3 Dual Dash Cam sold by amazon for £140 could possibly be one of the best Dash Cam's currently on the market. A package that includes two 1080p front and rear cameras, a very compact stick on mount, and most important of all can take upto a 128gb micro sd cards! So whilst the cost of £140 is not cheap, but appears to tick all of the boxes. Our second video in this series cover the exact specs of the Z-Edge dash cam is capable of.

Land Rover Discovery Sport Extreme Driving "Beast from the East" Snow Weather Test / ConsumerWatch / Motoring

By: N_Walayat

The 'Beast from the East' weather from Siberia has been hitting the UK all week since Tuesday 27th Feb, with heavy snowfall fall of between 5 cm and 15cm disrupting travel, snow flurries falling every few hours soon covering gritted roads in the coldest weather experienced for the UK since at least the past 5 years. Many motorists decided to do the sensible thing and leave their vehicles parked rather than risk driving.

However, in the interests of wanting to test the Land Rover Discovery Sport's All wheel drive and for a better look at the impact of the 'Beast from the East's heavy snowfall, I decided to hunt down some of the most badly effected roads in the city of Sheffield, none more so then those going out of the city to literally within a stones throw of Derbyshire as the this video illustrates.

Best Car Dash Cam Review: Z-Edge S3 Dual Dash Cam - UNBOXING (1) / Personal_Finance / Motoring

By: HGR

Dash Cam, a camera that goes onto your car's dashboard is now deemed to be a necessity rather than optional as one of the first things your insurer will ask following an accident is do you have dash cam footage. However, car owners hunting for a dash cam can be bewildered by the choice that ranges across the price spectrum from as little as £10 to several hundreds of pounds.

So in the search for the perfect dash cam we spent some time hunting for the optimum spec, starting with a front only camera soon progressing to a dual front and back camera configuration as expectations are that any trouble will come from the back rather than the front. The next requirement was that the dash cam should be able to record many hours of footage so that we don't need to empty the camera too often, unfortunately most dash cams are very limited in the max micro sd cards they can take, usually to just 32gb, which at 1080p equates to about 3 hours of footage. Another potential problem is that most cameras make use of suction mounts which effectively tend to triple the size of the camera on ones windscreen, so our requirement was for a compact low profile dash cam.

Land Rover Discovery Sport, What to Know Before Buying - 2 Month Owner Drivers Review / ConsumerWatch / Motoring

By: N_Walayat

This is my comprehensive review after owning and driving a Land Rover Discovery Sport for 2 months, of what to expect if your considering buying one as it does take a few weeks of real world driving before one is fully aware of the cars good and bad points, such as the pretty feeble plastic trim that tends to surround Discovery Sports, the rattling sound that many owners tend to experience again apparently from poor quality trim.

So whilst the Discovery Sport looks great on the driveway and generally also drives well, in many other respects my 11 year old Zafira was better i.e. the back two seats are seriously lacking in leg room, definitely not enough space for adults! And what's worse is that real world fuel economy performance will come nowhere near Land Rovers sales pitch of the DISCO doing 53.3 MPG. Then we have the fantasy of the first oil service change at 21,000 miles, when in reality the car will be requesting an oil change much sooner! So watch my 2 month drivers and owners review for what you need to beware of before you buy one. Where this HSE Black was bought from Hunters in Chester.

Letting a Land Rover Discovery Sport Fuel Tank Run to 0% Empty / Personal_Finance / Motoring

By: N_Walayat

Given the poor fuel economy of Land Rover Discovery Sport's i.e. owners will be lucky to achieve 30MPG let alone anywhere near Land Rover's sales pitch of 53.3MPG. Add to that the small 50 litre usable fuel tank then Discovery Sport drivers will often see themselves running low on fuel, but what happens when you let your fuel gauge run to zero, 0% Empty, and just how reliable is the fuel gauge for I am sure Disco Sport drivers are soon aware that the fuel gauge tends to vary in its reading. We'll we put a Disco Sport to the test in this video to find out just how reliable the fuel gauge is and what happens at EMPTY.

Adblue and Engine Oil Change Indicator Reliability - Land Rover Discovery Sport / ConsumerWatch / Motoring

By: N_Walayat

Every owner of newer diesel cars such as the Land Rover Discovery Sport should be aware that they have a separate Adblue tank that needs topping up every x thousand miles, and that the car needs an oil change every x thousand miles, 21,000 in the Discovery Sports case, where to aid drivers there are countdowns for both of these displayed on the dashboard. However, just how reliable are these indicators when compared against the manufactures sales pitch. For instance adblue is supposed to be consumed at the rate of 1 litre per 1000 miles driven. Whilst the oil service indicator should be counting down to 21,000 for the LR Discovery Sport.

How to Check Engine Oil Level, Dip Stick, Land Rover Discovery Sport / Personal_Finance / Motoring

By: N_Walayat

It is very important for Land Rover Discovery Sport owners to regularly check their engine oil levels because the Land Rover sales pitch of only requiring an oil change every 21,000 miles does NOT match the reality of real world driving as likely most will been requiring an oil change a good 10,000 miles before 21,000 miles have been driven. So do check you oil every 1000 miles or so to ensure it does not need topping up or changing. So find out in our latest video of how to easily check your oil level, which if low should be topped up to prevent a much earlier oil change than that which Land Rover suggests.

How to Check Land Rover Discovery Sport Adblue and Oil Change Service Interval Levels / Personal_Finance / Motoring

By: N_Walayat

It is very, very important for Land Rover Discovery Sport owners to regularly check their Adblue and Oil Change Service interval levels because they don't tend to change in line with what Land Rover states i.e. that an oil service is due every 21,000 miles etc. So checking ensures you are not suddenly caught off guard by a dash warning. Adblue is a mixture that is added to diesel fuel so as to lower emissions and meet EURO6 regulations. You car will have a 13 litre Adblue tank which technically should be consumed at the rate of 1litre per 1000 miles driven.
