VDS
Last week I took the liberty of
Posting it in Facebook on a few of their Latest posts and twitter to ( Autocar, JLR press , autoexpress, honest John now also has the poll results) .

A little bit of publication might just have helped focussed the minds too.

I had the same with my DP and dealer as chippy , which is good , but it gained far more traction once I let JLR press know through twitter with the link to the honest John site and other public posts were increasing too.

From my mind it was posting to the PR arm of JLR that had most effect.
Their post .....above and beyond the Discovery Sport...blah blah....
I post straight underneath
", why do the need welding after 34 days from new , look at this image of all the unhappy customers, 3 years from production JLR have no fix. And link to forum "
Picture of defect fix hammering and chiselling " the unsuccessful fix poll too.

Got this back

Hopefully these mails aren't just noise to keep the recipients quiet for a while...

I dropped mine in this morning. On the subject of oil dilution, he said it was no problem to give me the current reading when they obtained it, but he did point out that

"We don't do the oil/filter change unless the dilution has reached 7%" :-/

So, providing they don't suddenly decide to do a change on this visit, I'll be taking a sample & sending off to Millers when I get the car back (syringe kit was due yesterday but hadn't arrived yet to take it before dropping the car off).

The recent posts show that there clearly are different ways to deal with a problem.

I’m a firm believer in only escalating as far as is necessary leaving further possibilities open. I also don’t want to do anything to alienate my dealer principal unless all other efforts fail. His help is worth far more than from anyone else. I also know who my alternative dealers are and there is no way that a dealer conglomerate owned by a major Swiss organisation can offer any semblance of personal service. That’s what I need in this kind of situation.

The main thing is we all get what is justifiable ours and it’s up to each of us how we go about it. There is no single right way just the way that gets us where we need to be.

LOL - I had the exact same words in response to my email to Dr Speth this week regarding my spare wheel issue. They do though appear to be getting into gear to resolve the problem.

That doesn’t surprise me in the slightest. Let’s hope that they will get it sorted (service interval issue) before too long but heaven only knows how.

Yep spare wheel is easier sorted rather than defective chassis build and engine configuration.

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%). A quick extrapolation (assuming the relationship is linear) indicates that the engine may have done around 4500 miles with the oil viscosity below the minimum for a 0w30.

Agree - they are some of the worst I've seen on here to date. Sorry to see this, Bill.

Out of interest, are you able to shed any light on the kinds of journeys you are making in your car? I'm certainly not going to play the "driving style" card, but I'm curious to understand if there is a correlation between the kinds of journeys you do and the high level of oil dilution within such a short distance.

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 motorway trips as well. All in all quite varied but with virtually no stop start heavy city traffic.
