Getting rid!

Post by Robsters » Sun Sep 22, 2019 10:19 pm

Well after 9 months of fighting Listers Hereford to take my DS back and paying a lot of money for legal support I have decided to get rid of the car before it has a major failure. Traded in for a new Volvo XC60 and going to take them to small claims for the loss I have incurred, I had no support from Land Rover, the so called family firm of Listers kept ignoring my correspondence and my lawyers letters so left me with no choice. I could not keep a car that needed oil changes every 5000 miles, constant visits to the garage for dpf and other issues. 9 months of stress and having a car that was living up to all the same predicaments of forum members on here. Thank you all for the support and help I have had and it was a pleasure to assist new members with my limited knowledge of the DS, happy motoring everyone 👍

Good luck with the new car.

It's a real shame the DS has this achilles heel with the exhaust architecture. If you're in the place you were with very short oil change intervals and DPF blockages, there's little that can be done to alleviate the problems unfortunately.

Good luck, and please pop back and let us know how the new XC60 is, but also let us know how the small claims goes too. Hope you win, remember lots of folk on here can help, and lots of info on here too if you need it.

I think the days of family owned friendly dealerships are long gone - Listers is a national group, and the Hereford showroom is mutli-million pound effort (very nice coffee too). Not much consolation in your case though. Hope you fair better with your XC60.

Quick update, exactly a year to the day the dealer has settled out of court. 12 months of hard work and a lot of stress we got close to what we were after, not only that but we handed the XC60 back that we got to replace the DS and have now purchased a used BMW X5 which so far has been great. So for everyone else out there going through the dreaded oil dilution issue don’t give up because the dealers know they are mis-selling these cars and their day of reckoning will come, good luck to you all. 👍

Why did you hand the XC 60 back?

Great result

Which I rejected lol
