Hi, I've just had the same problem. I was driving on the motorway when the engine suddenly cut out. There was no warning. I'm still quite shaken up as the motorway was very busy and it's a miracle I didn't end up in a horrible accident.
It's a 2015 2L Discovery Sport with 58,000 miles on the clock. We bought it privately a few months ago. The previous owner serviced regularly with LR. It was booked in for service next week but the garage said they wouldn't have picked this up. They've confirmed it's a broken timing belt and it's caused catastrophic engine damage. They said 6-8k to source and fit a reconditioned engine.
I see that some people have managed to get LR to contribute/pay in full. I've no idea where to direct my claim or what are the key points to raise. If anyone could point me in the right direction I'd really appreciate it.
