Exhaust Manifold Cracked 2017 DS Gas

Post by SevillianSTS » Wed Jun 09, 2021 8:10 pm

Hello All,
I just got a 2017 Discovery Sport HSE Luxury with 2.0 gas engine. 73,000 miles.
Noticed an exhaust smell inside the vehicle.
Just confirmed a severely cracked exhaust manifold on the far right passenger side.
I have come across a class action lawsuit online; so this is clearly common.

Any updates on this?
Fix is a whole new turbo assembly; $2,500-$4,000
Waiting to get feedback from the dealer.

Not heard of this on here before, so not all that common. I assume by use of ‘gas’ you’re in North America and in 2017 that could be the old Ford engine or the Ingenium engine that replaced it, not sure which.

ETA: Just seen the dates on the document so that’ll be the Ford gas / petrol engine which wasn’t sold over here (OK, a couple got out), and as this is a primarily UK / European forum where we love (loved?) our diesels we wouldn’t have seen this issue much,

But good luck.

Interesting
The claim is that the turbocharger housing (and turbo) fail before the useful life of the engine. The first two claimants bought 2015 cars that had turbo failure in 2020.
So anything that is engine related that fails before what the customer believes is the useful life of the engine (300,000 miles ?) and you can sue?
A car that breaks down 2 years after the warranty expires should still be fixed for free, even though the failure isn’t safety related?

Why have a warranty agreed by both parties, if either party can say that they are going to vary the terms as and when it suits.

2016 DS HSE auto, for 45k nice (grey!) car.
2014 Ewok for 6 months, really really rubbish.
2008 FL2 for 185k miles, should have kept her.
2006 FL1 for 110k miles, brilliant car.
2000 FL1 for 100k miles, fell apart but started the LR bug
