Bottom line I think is that we're all speculating here because none of us actually know - and that's simply down to JLR's continued reluctance to be completely open and to obfuscate. If ever there was a lesson in how to hack off a swathe of people who effectively contribute to paying their wages..... Quite simply so many of us are now so hacked off with this charade I wonder whether (m)any of us will believe anything JLR now say and consider investing with them again?
Here, here!

I for one am certainly on my last LR

Yep not much else we can do though.
It's pretty obvious by the quantity of possibly affected vehicles that this isn't a bad batch!

Unless they have a massive DPF store

There is always something else one can do - sell ones DS for instance. Sound familiar? ;)

True but it also goes along with the old mouse or man proverb .

We can all walk away quietly , or we can kick up a stink on the way :lol:

Remember sending the photographs of the b pillars chisel destruction to mr Speth and Hicks by a few members did result in the chiselling of seams being stoped and changed to a "wiggle" with pliers.

Hi, Jist wanted to thank you guys for this thread. It’s definitely a very important piece of information. My nightmare stories are posted at the “Restricted Performance” thread. And a very big thank you to Barnsh who made sense of the numbers in this SSM (would anyone know what SSM mean???- I’m guessing “M”is memorandum?).

No wonder I am in deep mess, my VIN is right smack in the middle 688###. The faults are not mine/ the drivers... it’s “a quality flaw”and its expected to fail.

The diagnosis was done sometime 12December though the report that they forwarded to us was dated 9 January. I wonder if this valuable info (especially no. 5, on retailer’s action “if any repairs are carried out, please book to warranty” was even considered at all? Hmmm, I guess Barnsh had a good foresight when she said it will all boil down to them saying it’s “driver’s fault.” That’s their convenient excuse to make us shoulder the repair on an already rejected car (first breakdown 28 days after purchase- then 3 more after that).

Again, thanks.
