replacement engine/vehicle through warranty

I have a 2006 Discovery 3 HSE which went into a dealer 7 WEEKS AGO to have the electronic handbrake adjusted. The dealer spotted a small oil leak that LR advised required a new camshaft. This was duly fitted under warranty, however when testing after repair the engine misfired badly whilst cold. Seven weeks have now passed during which time the heads have been sent off for testing, the valves tested, injectors replaced and the camshaft sensor replaced; none of which has worked. The dealer has admitted they don't know what to do even though they have consulted with LR. I've written to LR Customer Services explaining my patience has run out and I expect them to deal with the situation immediately. From what I read on this website I don't hold out a great deal of hope of a quick resolution, so my solicitor will be hearing from me very shortly! Has anyone out there had any experience of seeking a replacement engine/vehicle through warranty?

Same problem!

I would be interested to hear the results of this as currently.... Car went in to have handbrake adjusted, one week later there was a rattling noise coming from the engine, took it into dealer garage who said it was most likely an injector that needed replacing so arranged to leave it with them the next day. Did this and went back later that day to be told they had checked them all, the diagnostic is showing no problems, so we have to replace the entire engine! The car is a late 2007, and has only done 35,000 miles, and no one seems to know why it needs replacing, this is a massive repair and I am hoping that land rover will assist and give me some answers, this is my third lr, second disco, the dealership has been really good, but I do not understand how or why this could happen?!

disco 3 nightmare

2008 HSE - crankshaft broken, new engine will cost just about what car is worth! Am talking to LR but don't hold out much hope- seems garages in London who offer £ 3500 fitted are dodgy!

Disco 4 snapped crank

We know about the crankshaft issues on the discovery 3, but at 86,000 miles our disco 4 snapped the crank with no warning on a short run back from taking the kids back from Saturday morning football. After three weeks Landrover have offered a goodwill gesture of 20 percent against a new engine (circa 16k) if supplied and fitted by Landrover. The dealers have offered to add another 10 percent (very nice people and embarrassed by Landrover reaction) but the car is six, nearly seven years old and not worth the cost of a Landrover repair. I was keen to buy a disco 5 (my husband less so) but this is the latest in a string of faults with this car, and unless Landrover are prepared to make a reasonable contribution it will be our last. This is the ninth and worst Landrover we have owned (all three defenders have been brilliant, the disco's less so) looks like the crankshaft curse has crossed the model range!

Disco 4 snapped crankshaft

Our Disco 4 died without warning last weekend. early indications from Hunters in Guildford is that it is a suspected broken crank. the car has done 35,000 miles!!!! this is a car that is supposed to be made for rough terrain. 16-18k for new engine. awaiting LR to strip the engine to confirm the worst. Goodwill being spoken about, but on a car that young, one would hope the good will is the cost of the fitting!!! Shocked at a product breaking like this.

Broken cam shaft disco 4

We have disco 4 2011 only 48000 miles with a broken cam shaft Lr been really good after taking it all way to top but we're not out of woods yet as there talking about a £16000 job how the hell is it this much for an engine

tdv6 snapped crank

Why would this happen, i,ve just snapped one at 175000k. It seems an endemic problem at all milages with landrovers. Landrover should fix the issue at their cost as it is their problem which continues to occur. Snapped crank is a huge issue in a modern motor vehicle, especially so many. how can we approach the issue for compensation. MY QUOTE IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA IS OVER $20,000.00. LOVE THE VEHICLE BUT THIS IS A JOKE.

Disco 4

My disco 4 died last week, 4 years old and crank shaft gone.... out of warranty by just under a year... only done 51,000 with full service history.... is this a regular issue with these cars?? what is everyones experience of landcover doing the right thing or otherwise?

Discovery 4 Engine failure

36K miles and 3 years a 4 mouths old bottom end gone and LR no willing to help??? Might just set fire to it after driving into their nice new showroom!! Anyone provide any help out there?

Knocking sound

Range Rover going well

18 months and 47,500 in to my ownership of my 30/9/2017 Range Rover SDV8. I had one problem, that put it off the road for 6 weeks (around 6 months ago), while a modified wiring loom for an internal engine oil sensor was designed, manufactured and tested. Apart from that, it's been great, with the next service due in 4 days and no warranty work due to be done. I shall own this car until at least 48 months & 140,000 miles and i'll then review it. If it's still going this well, it'll be kept long term into properly high mileage.
