Re: Rejection Advice

Well as of this morning I am no longer a DS owner, my dealer eventually came up with an acceptable offer to buy the car back from me. While in many respects a fine car, it went back with the usual outside temp fault, a wayward climate control system and a loud rattle from loose trim somewhere in the...

Re: Service interval

If it used to be a combination of count down genuine miles driven and then subtracted some calculated value of miles given by the Oils service algorithmic counter for number of starts etc then splitting would just leave count down to miles done service . That hides dilution figures . Edit and count...

Re: 2015 Cars worth more than equivalent 2017 models

Interesting indeed. For reasons you may recall I have been looking at car prices quite a bit recently, mainly nearly new. I've found that the retail price of cars which on the surface look very similar can vary quite dramatically. A quick and dirty way of getting an approximation of the trade value ...

Not just customers who are easily confused. JLR's own internal document JLRP00100 refers to it as a DPF.

Re: Rejection Advice

Thanks for the advice and support. It's all too easy to fall prey to the constant stream of alternative reality emanating from JLR/dealers and start to doubt your own reasoning. Sadly my dealer got off to bad start by initially promising to take the matter up with JLR CRC and get back to me asap. Si...

Rejection Advice

Has anyone successfully rejected a car for the oil dilution, short service interval problem? If so I would be grateful for any tips or advice. So far seem to be in head and brick wall mode. The story so far. The car is a MY 17 150hp SE Tech bought last May with 3700 miles on the clock. Needed it’s f...

Re: Service interval

Service manager at supplying dealer tried the driving style card but to be fair he didn't push the issue. The car lives in a rural location so, yes, there are some short trips to the nearest town 3-4 miles but lots of longer trips as well to reach civilisation - mainly on quietish A roads but some m...
