I have just had my 'first' major service, I had the front pads changed for brake squeal in January & now I felt a bit of brake judder & the technician saw that the rear discs were pitted so these are being changed under warranty also. I also had one tailgate strut changed under warranty last year as it was making a crunching noise & they are changing the other one now as it is making a similar noise. Both these are faults that are well known to LR so don't let them fob you off! Make sure that if the discs are changed that they put new pads in at the same time. :D

I have never had a problem with the dealership, excellent service over the last eight years. They changed the disks and pads plus the tailgate struts without any hassle...there are one or two good JLR dealerships around!

Does anyone have info on whether this was only a problem on certain past production runs, ... or is it still becoming apparent on latest cars ?...😒

If it is... What the flip are they doing about it ?...
