Rejection

Post by Jockmcsporran » Sat Dec 01, 2018 11:27 am

Saw the other thread and a lot of info in it which I’ll read through later.

Just wondered how many had successfully rejected for oil dilution issues? I’ve had 4 services in 26000 miles of owning the car (bought at 13000). Basically every 8000 miles give or take. Means I need 4 or 5 services per year for my miles, mostly motorway trips.

Not sure, a couple maybe more, you could try putting in oil dilutions d having a read. Also not sure if these people had purchased new.
sometimes it makes it easier to reject. Why not try simply asking for your money back because of the servicing? They might well say no, but there’s a slim chance they might agree?

I rejected because of a different reason and it was Hell. If you’ve an awkward dealer, it takes time and a lot of determination. Sometimes I honestly wished I’d never started it. It was not a pleasant experience.

My 15 month old discovery 5 was rejected due to oil dilution. Had 16000 miles on the clock and 4 or 5 services.

Got a velar now.

Cheers. Gives me some hope for a positive outcome. I’m hoping that they’ll realise I’m not going to lay down then they’ll settle and move on but I’m suspecting it’ll go all the way and be dragged out

Will depend on your dealer, if you already have a case open with Landrover and how you word the rejection,

Having a case with Landrover certainly helps, then give the dealer one final chance to resolve the issue with guidance from Landrover technical. When it does not work - reject as unfit for purpose, not as described or of satisfactory quality.

Took me 4 ish weeks from letter to new car.

As above, it took me 5 months of total grief. Others on here took over a year.
