Welcome. Sorry to hear it.Took delivery of a new first edition today. 36mi on the odometer and 20mins from the dealer while driving on a city street I hear a loud 'bang' from the rear of the car and there's a shudder.
I think maybe a tire blew out, but the car isn't pulling to any side. An instant later the warning announcements start: Traction Battery Fault Detected, pull over safely, reduced performance.
I pull the car over and it's telling me it's going to shut down. I'm stopped on the side of the road. I attempt to put the car into P, but the warning 'Speed too high for Park' comes up on the screen. I can put it in N. Getting it onto the flatbed to tow back to the dealer the rear wheels are completely locked up and have to be put on skates.
Searching around I don't see much info on similar incidents. Anyone heard of anything similar and how JLR ended up handling it?
Hopefully it will be better than Tesla, and you will need less than 5 new rear motors in the first 10,000 miles. One front motor failure has been reported as well as an arson.
You didn't even mention contacting JLR's online cell assistance. How did that work for you?
