Please help. I bought a new S dynamic Evoque on 10th July 2019 and it's been in now 6 times with engine warning lights and oil services.
It's diesel and this DPF amber light appears around every 2 to 3 weeks then I give it a good run on the motorway and it clears. On Monday the engine warning light came on and it has been in with LR from Tuesday morning (it had a new DPF filter fitted after just 2500 miles and a new oil filter changed at just 2000 miles) I have been informed today that DPF filter is not full and they are not sure why engine light came on but is apparently something to do with DPF filter???? LR asked the technician dealing with me car to ring me to ask me details about my drive cycle as these ejits are basically blaming me for these reoccuring issues??? I drive between 40 and 70 miles per hour 4 times a week at least, yes do school run 5 mornings a week in traffic before heading to work but I can't control the traffic. I am done with this car, is anyone having similar issues? Are LR sunddenly trying to blame you for the drive cycle? You any advice on how you are meant to stop DPF issues?

Well known fault, first identified in 2017 and investigated to conclusion on the UK Discovery Sport forum. It was hoped that the 2020 PTA cars would come with a hardware fix - sadly they chose to leave things as they were.

I've had yet another 2 engine warning lights come on within 2 weeks and have now been told my car has been recalled due to a fault with DPF. Where does that leave me? I paid £5000 deposit and £3000 of payments in 7 months from I reveived the car, should they refund me all this money or offer me a new petrol evoque to the specifications I picked for my original car? Stressed out with all this carry on

Before allowing them to attempt any "fix" (there isn't one ) you ought to think seriously about getting legal advice. The folks at Stormcatcher know all about this issue and will give you a free initial telephone consultation with a barrister. If you appoint them to manage your claim, they'll provide a fixed-price service which, last I heard, costs about £800 incl. VAT.
