The problem i had was that I was unaware of the issue at the time. It wasn't until I researched the fault afterwards that I realised that switching to low could have prevented the problem.
Now that hat I know that the dealer was aware of the issue I believe that they had a duty of care to advise me at the time of my service especially since I mentioned that I was planning to use the vehicle in soft sand.
I want the issue to be listed as a recall or at the very least be mentioned to customers so that others are not caught in dangerous situations.
The dealer has now looked up my VIN and told me that my model is subject to this fault. Apparently it is a combination of engine, suspension and diff ratios???
My is a Quadra lift CRD but the issue also happened to my friends 3.6L steel sprung GC? I have been advised that it will be fixed upon the service managers return as he is the only one with the software update on his PC.
