Intelligent stop/start not working
Hey Friends

Just joined this Forum today. First time Land Rover Owner! 3 weeks ago bought a 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport HSE.

2 Questions:

1. The intelligent stop/start does not work...nor has it since we bought it. I've read a lot of comments on the internet about this and it sounds like it's very fickle and doesn't seem to work much or very well at all? Is this true and shall i deal with it or shall i take back to the dealer for selling me a car that advertised it on the sticker but doesn't have it?

2. The car sticker also says Interior Ambient Lighting and from pictures i researched it seems pretty cool with different light...etc. But I don't know what the ambient lighting is...i just have regular white interior lights. There is no Ambient Lighting in the menu when i scroll through but pictures i see on-line shows there is an Ambient Lighting selection on the console computer...but not mine?? Is this different than what i purchased?

First item, be happy the start/stop doesn't work... I personally think it is the worst thing ever put in a car or SUV. The only reason they have it, is to pass emissions when doing testing; since the engine is not running during any stops in town there is zero emissions.

Second item I can't help with... sorry.

thank Joey
ok...thanks Joey

I'll take your word for it that the stop start thing would be more of a nuisance.

I'll go to the other site for the forum too...thanks for replying
