Newbies Should Read This

Post by PhilMabbots17 » Thu Aug 03, 2017 12:15 am

If you have taken delivery of a new 2 litre diesel DS since 1st June 2017, or currently have one on order, like me you are probably expecting that the car will go 34,000 km (21,000 miles) or 2 years between services. Based on actual repots it is more likely that your first service will be needed between 16,000 km and 19,000 km (10,000 to 12,000 miles) even as few as 8,000 miles. Mine is eating up service miles twice as fast as I am adding real miles so I now expect to have to pay - yes, you read that correctly, "pay" - for an interim oil change in about 12 months time with a mileage of 11,300 / this is based on the current reading on the dash less the miles I'm expecting to 'lose'. I found out about this a month after I took delivery so am not best pleased to say the least. The sales rep who sold my car claims the service interval should be as per the brochure but that's looking more and more like total BS and LR seem to have confirmed the problem is real. There's a useful thread called Service Interval here, viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5379&start=210 (this is 2/3 of the way through but there's a useful download on this page) - as to whether the service plan will pay for it hasn't been decided, up to now its been done under warranty but from June 1st it looks like service plan only covers the standard services and these oil changes will be extra and not covered under warranty. I wish this had been known about before I handed over any money as now I feel I have lost any leverage I might had.

Is this issue widespread, or specific to model year, or a range of chassis numbers?
I am used to oil changes at 12k miles or 12 months, but 5-6k miles? Really?

This thread is supposed to be a pointer to the other threads on the forum. A pointer where folk can go and read everyone’s thoughts and opinions on all sides of the fence so to speak. Please don’t let it become another debate on all the threads and topics that already exist . The forum then becomes messy and hard to search for specific items for newbies.

Hello. Occassional Land Rover sufferer, and obviously glutton for punishment but when they work they are amazing animals.

I have loved and loathed a Discovery 3, then have had 2 LRD4s, currently dribling in a 2013 LRD4 HSE. In between I tend to drive Audi estates of the S variety.

Thought I would have a look at the comments on this site now that the next service on my D4 will set me back around £1200.

I have time. The service is not for a year.

First thought was to swap for a Discovery Sport, because in theory, it 'should' be cheaper to run than the D4. Less tax, less diesel, less servicing.

However, am slightly shocked at the 'Newbies Should Read This' post!

I would be interested to know what the 'real world' costs are of running one of the 2.0L Diesels.

Difficult to say as mpg is very dependent on your driving - In my slightly lighter Evoque I get 40+at 70 on the motorway, more like 35 around town. Servicing will depend on your mileage. At the moment it's every 21000 miles, and the interim oil change is done as a warranty item. I've never paid for a service, as the DS had a service plan and the Evoque has only done 11000 miles so far. I doubt if anyone has had the new model DS serviced yet. Servicing costs can depend on your location. In the past I have found approved repairers like TVLR to be cheaper than the main dealers. Nothing to stop you ringing up and asking. Only other expense is AdBlue. I seem to be getting about 8000 miles to 10 litres, so not a problem.
If you go for an older one, make sure you get a warranty and factor in the cost of extended warranty too.
