2014 Evora with Black Pack purchased at Lotus Greenville
I just purchased a new 2014 Evora and just wanted to provide some information on the new 2014 Evoras on the market now. You may have read about problems with the Traction Control light coming on, perhaps followed by Check Engine and failure to run or "limp mode". I've read about this issue being caused by issues with a few different sensors including "steering alignment", "brake sensor" and "loose throttle body". I use quotation marks because I'm not a Lotus technician and those may not be completely accurate.
Apparently my car had issues with two of those, the throttle body and when that was fixed, the steering alignment sensor. So, there are some issues with the cars that should be caught at the factory.
However, we know these are rare, hand made cars and these problems do come up. These issues are minor and are easily fixed by a good dealer. I purchased my car at Lotus Greenville and they did everything possible to take care of the problem quickly and to make the best out of a bad situation.
I picked up the car on a Saturday and experienced a problem Saturday evening. They had a truck there within a couple of hours to take the car back to Greenville from Asheville NC. Sunday morning, their Land Rover affiliate in Asheville met me at Land Rover Asheville at 9:00AM on a Sunday morning to put me in a new Land Rover while the Lotus was being repaired. I picked up the car and experienced the same issue but with a different sensor. They once again provided me with the same new Land Rover while the car was under repair. The problem was resolved quickly and I haven't had any other issues with the car. It's performing flawlessly just like my Elise did.
My message is that I'm confident you can buy one of these cars and not have any issues that aren't easily resolved. Just be sure to do business with a dealership that will provide excellent service for the car and for you. I can recommend Lotus Greenville without any reservation.
