Anyone with a MY18 having steering wheel button issues?

My car has gone back to the dealer with various issues including a failure of the left side buttons on the steering wheel.

Has anyone else had this issue?

Hi

No mine has been all good. i suspect you have just been unlucky.

I am sure they will sort it asap.

My car has now been in the dealer for 2 days and there is another car with the same issue at the dealership. Will let you know the outcome (which hopefully won’t be the part on back order).

Adam over on the sport forum nearly all those with the 18 model are having these same problems.

Blimey!

I'm off to the new Cayenne launch on Tuesday night.... Not sure I want to move from my MY14 to a later car, or watch my current one depreciate even worse that it is already....

Mind you, forums only have bad news on them don't they? 2014 SDV8 L405 Autobiography. Luxor with ivory. 22's...

Oh dear...

Well the replaced switch-pack has failed again after approx 120 miles and 3 hours of driving...

To add insult to injury the car was damaged (very likely to need a new steering wheel) whilst being repaired.

I am a few poorly chosen words by the dealer away from rejecting this car and giving up on Range Rover (much as I love to drive them) - they break too frequently.

Adam,
so far mine has worked without any issue. one to watch me thinks, but there again i have only drove it 4/5 times.
bad news when u feel like this been there badge and t-shirt, like you it won't take much to move away for good if there any issues with this one i have collected.
Massive shame as we all love these cars and when they are right nothing beats them.
Best of luck my mate.

I have spoken to soon on two occasions the left hand buttons have failed to operate.
Bearing in mind it has only covered 500miles and about 15 journeys
Oh dear

Oh dear indeed - the good news is that my 2nd pack has worked!

The bad news is that my Bluetooth has now failed...I am starting to think that this is a Friday car....

Genuinely don’t understand how this continually happens - they can’t pay their electronics people half what everyone else does, they don’t buy the components on Alibaba, they must carry out industry-standard testing, they aren’t assembled in the dark. What is so difficult?
