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...

Just posted my oil analysis results and they look truly awful. At 6450 miles the viscosity was 8.38 cSt, the Fe 203 ppm and the fuel dilution 5.2% (the SDD said 7%).

Re: Service interval

I'm in the process of preparing a formal complaint to JLR with a possibility of rejecting the car. It is surely unacceptable that the oil needed to be changed at 6500 miles with a derived fuel dilution of 7%.

Re: Service Plan

I have been following this (and related threads) for a wee while now with mounting concern, having just sold an SUV from another manufacturer with a known serious engine problem.
