Over sensitive Emergency Lane Keeping system!

The emergency lane keeping feature, is so flawed, it’s only a matter of time before it causes an accident, it keeps coming in on back roads, when it often thinks you are about to drive into a ditch, and try’s to steer you into the middle of the road. Happened to me the other day, when I tried to pull into the side to pass a tractor, and it attempts to steer you into the path of it instead!
I have now got into the habit of disabling it before every country road drive!
Have spoken to JLR about it a couple of times, but they refuse to acknowledge it being an issue!

I have seen it mentioned on various other forums, and it seems to be quite a common moan. My dealer acknowledges that my vehicle does this, as does there demonstrator, however, they say that until JLR comes up with a fix, there is mothing they can do about it!

The car drives perfectly on country roads when it is disabled, but alway defaults to on when you start the car again!

Janes May has an item in today’s Sunday Times regarding this being sent, without notice, over the air, to his Tesla S and how on country lanes he had to fight against it to avoid an incident with a tractor because the car wouldn’t allow him to pull off onto the verge........... I’ve had the same issue on the back roads around here when I’ve had to pull over and had to fight the car. I have it inhibited both in the touch screen settings and the steering wheel switch and it still wants to get me back to the middle of the road as it seems to run in the back ground even when you think you’ve inhibited it. There’s no way that it is smart enough for country road driving where there are white lines on the side but no central narkings Epsom Green Tdi300 County Hard Top converted into a Station Wagon

On the demo I had I never noticed it at all, and yes I was on narrow back roads, I didn’t check the settings but had no fighting with the car.

FYI my 110 has no issues on back lanes and works perfect as expected on normal roads.

I live in a very rural area 60% of my local driving is narrow roads. 130's have feeling's as well you know Smile

Hi Andrew, so are you saying you never feel it attempting to correct you at all on back roads, does the red lane warning not flash on the dash when it does? Interesting, because mine does it all the time, ( except in rain and darkness funnily enough) , and so did the demo I tried. My dealership also confirmed it was an issue on not just the defender, but some other jlr models!
So maybe its not a fault on all cars, just some, which makes it more frustrating as JLR will do nothing about it!

Same here. We purposely drove around the small roads of the Surrey Hills, on coming cars, cyclists and many a time having to leave the tarmac to get round other road users. No issues that i can remember.

My friend has a BMW M3 and hates that feature. Again it never really switches off even when it has been turned off in the options.

Correct its never ever tried to correct at all. Never had the dash lane warning. To be clear we are talking about roads that have no white lines on the verge. 130's have feeling's as well you know Smile
