...
But buying a second hand car with a supposed 21000 mile service interval and then seeing additional oil changes would surely be a red flag for some? ...

For someone who does some research before buying a used Ingenium engined vehicle I would say seeing interim oil changes is a good thing overall. If it got to 21,000 miles before having an oil change I would be worried.

Either the vehicle hasn't had the s/w updated to warn when oil is diluted or they have a dealer that gives them the "ignore that, it's just a glitch" response!

In his latest on-line Agony Column, Honest John looks to have finally "removed the gloves" regarding the Land Rover exhaust problem, its causes and effects: it is, as many had always suspected following JLRP00100, a case of a square peg (brand-new transverse engine + Eu6 exhaust) which was hastily forced into a round hole (old Freelander II floor pan) where it failed to work properly. Yet somehow this was a problem that arose, according to JLR, as a result of the behaviour of its customers, many of whom had paid between £40,000 and £50,000 for their cars.

RB from Cornwall wonders why, given that the problem is now fully understood, JLR isn't doing everything in its power to find a solution, or at least saying something reassuring in the interim to owners who bought what they thought was a "sports utility vehicle", only to discover that, in some respects, it doesn't actually meet the definition. In the next letter JG then asks whether JLR ever intends to fix their "design fault".

HJ believes that the problem "can't be fixed" and if this is true, then of course the message to JG and others is "Sorry, it will never be fixed, just live with it". The answer, apparently, is to get the SI4 Ingenium petrol version. That's great advice I am sure, but only if your money is still in your wallet.

I'm more bothered about what JLR is going to do about the members of this forum and people like my friend who decided to keep her DS (against my advice) and has now had 3 oil changes in a year and a half and multiple visits to the dealer for forced regenerations? Even when you've escaped from this miserable situation it still has the potential to raise the blood pressure.
