Owned or leased a Jaguar Land Rover that suffered performance issues?

If so, this could have been your Particulate Filter (DPF). Even if you have not experienced a problem, you could be entitled to claim up to £16,000 in compensation due to potentially increased running costs.

Our investigations reveal certain Jaguar Land Rover customers purchased cars with defective components, including diesel particulate filter (DPF) systems. These vehicles are defective in their design and can cause significant on road safety and performance issues for drivers. The defects may also cause accelerated engine wear forcing customers to pay additional costs for servicing, including in some cases engine replacement.

Over 500,000 new car owners may be affected and thus eligible to make a claim, and hundreds of thousands of additional pre-owned car owners may also have claims.

A new group action seeks over £3bn on behalf of Jaguar Land Rover customers who purchased cars with defective components. If the case is successful, claimants could receive between £3,000 and £16,000 each in compensation.

Eligible models include:

  • Land Rover Discovery Sport (L550)
  • Range Rover Evoque (L538 and L551)
  • Jaguar E-Pace (X450)
  • ​Range Rover (L405)
  • ​Range Rover Sport (L494)
  • ​Land Rover Discovery (L462)
  • ​Jaguar XE (X760)
  • ​Jaguar XF (X260)
  • ​Jaguar F-Pace (X761)
  • ​Land Rover Velar (L560)

What issues can I claim for?

Reduced engine perform

A blocked DPF can cause the engine to lose power. You might notice that the vehicle doesn't accelerate as quickly as it used to, or it might feel sluggish and unresponsive.

Poor Fuel Efficiency

If the DPF is not working correctly, the engine may have to work harder, which can lead to increased fuel consumption. This may cause you additional costs

Warning Lights

Most modern vehicles have a warning light on the dashboard that will illuminate if there's a problem with the DPF. This is often the first sign drivers notice when there's an issue.

Frequent Regeneration

If the DPF is faulty, the vehicle might attempt to regenerate the filter more frequently than normal. This can lead to increased fuel consumption.

Engine Damage

In severe cases, a blocked DPF can cause back pressure in the exhaust system, which can lead to engine damage. This can be a very costly problem to fix.

Forced into 'Limp Mode'

Some vehicles will go into a safety mode known as 'limp mode' if the DPF issue is severe. This mode limits the performance of the vehicle to prevent further damage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. This is a different and separate claim to the emissions cheating case being brought against Jaguar Land Rover. The defective components (including in relation to the DPF system) are separate problems which we believe Jaguar Land Rover needs to answer to. You can still sign-up if your vehicle is already enrolled as a claimant in a dieselgate claim but please let us know by emailing [email protected].

We believe Jaguar Land Rover has sold cars with defective components, including diesel particulate filter (DPF) systems.

Jaguar Land Rover uses a DPF system to reduce emissions from their cars. The DPF system forms an essential part of the diesel aftertreatment system. A DPF system collects combustion particulates in the filter which are then burned off when the engine reaches a high temperature, in a process called regeneration. When functioning properly, the DPF system should be self-cleaning and remove the soot build up. We say that the DPF systems installed by Jaguar Land Rover were not fit for purpose.

A full or clogged DPF can cause the car to enter “limp mode”, making it slower and less responsive, increasing the risk of an accident and putting both the owner and other road users in danger.

We believe that consumers were sold a luxury vehicle on the premise that it met the required standards and would perform as advertised. Put simply, certain cars have not lived up to these promises.

– Jaguar E-Pace (X450)

– Land Rover Discovery (L462)
– Jaguar XE (X760)

– Jaguar F-Pace (X761)
– Land Rover Velar (L560)

To meet the claim’s eligibility criteria, the cars must have been purchased after 1st July 2018.

‘DPF’ stands for diesel particulate filter. The DPF system is part of the diesel exhaust after-treatment system, designed to comply with European standards.

The purpose of the DPF is to capture soot and pollutants from diesel combustion. It is designed to be able to regenerate and clean itself, to prevent the system from clogging or blocking.

When functioning properly, the DPF system should essentially clean and remove the soot build up in the exhaust.

In short, people have been paying up to £120,000 for cars that were not fit for purpose. Drivers had a reasonable expectation that their luxury car would meet the safety, reliability and performance standards advertised by Jaguar Land Rover, but Jaguar Land Rover failed to deliver. 

Limp mode: A full or clogged DPF can cause the car to enter “limp mode”, making it slower and less responsive, increasing the risk of an accident and putting both the owner and other road users in danger.

Shortened service intervals: The defective components mean the affected cars need to be serviced more frequently than would have been expected when they were purchased, with the associated costs being met by the car owners.

Engine damage: Driving with a full DPF filter can also cause damage to the car leading to oil dilution and increased wear and tear of the engine. The defects can also result in the vehicle needing more frequent oil changes.

Higher costs: costs of additional servicing, increased fuel consumption and maintaining the defects are often passed onto the drivers.
