Any visit to the dealer is a potential new car sale... Even if reliability reputation/perception is poor.

Especially when you consider that most Land Rover owners are fanatics and forgive the brand for it's frailties.   ::)

I've now dealt with every problem that the vehicle had/or could have, very fortunate to have found someone who has over 40 years experience of the brand , have to say it is a terrific vehicle to drive & tow with, certainly much nicer than the Hyundai & the V8 Merc which it replaced.

Cars, like all computer filled gubbins, are only as good as the programmers... Some are in the same office, some work for Apple :D
Trouble with modern software development methodologies mean that all new software is inherently more unfinished and less tested than that of a decade ago, which itself was worse than a decade before.

That is the same for PCs/Macs, home technology devices, and embedded stuff used in cars etc.

The central locking system for Jaguar/Land Rover must be a fantastic little earner for them this has been documented for years, I've had all mine replaced now on the Range Rover + the bonnet alarm sensor which is another known problem , the indi I use has assured me that the ones he has fitted will not fail he gave up using the original ones about 5 years ago .
I've only managed to find 2 companies who make them for mine (and guess yours is same if it has passive entry but not soft close), Brose who are the OEM, and are shit, or a chinky one who's name escapes me currently, who are even more shit, if ever that was possible ;D

I fitted some patterns to mine, in the hope they would last longer. But they didn't ;D

What makes you assume I towed with the Merc ?  Are you more stupid than you appear to be ?

Thats a pretty good summary of Agile, I might use that one in some presentations ;D :y

I was just having a gander through our local internal vacancies, and every single one mentions Agile, so must be the current wankword bingo top dog at our place.

Give it a few more years and there will be nobody left who remembers stuff being tested before it was launched so it worked as expected.The people who expected things to not need to be replaced every six months won't be missed by manufacturers either.

Every time I hear this word I passive aggressively ignore it. Maybe I'll raise my eyebrows, or nod. Maybe they'll think my team are implementing it. ;D

It might be fine for something trivial like a web site, but for a complex software system that actually has to be designed, it helps if you know where you're going beyond the next fortnight otherwise you end up with a mess that's been chainsawed about all over the place, and is impossible to debug or maintain. Not such an issue for a web site where users can always hit the refresh button. More of a problem for an embedded system that needs to run for years unattended. ::)

OMG, you dropped the D-bomb.  Apparently any form of design designed to be used beyond the next sprint can't possibly be agile, thus the word must not be used.

Despite the fact I have recently been infected with Oxford, courtesy of Mr AZ, even I can still see you are speaking far too much common sense than is allowed nowadays :P

Have no idea of what make they are but seems confident that they are fit for purpose ,he also mentioned that there are a lot of  inferior pattern suspension pumps available which are "total crap" as mine had recently had its one replaced he confirmed it is a genuine one thankfully, although they are not that expensive to replace if required.
