United Kingdom 2017 Range Rover Autobiography TDV6 Carpathian Grey

Just to update, I waited for two weeks for a response from JLR on the issue I have raised about oil dilution. the response was to reference the amended RR MY17.5 sales brochure update that inserted that "driving styles" will affect the nominal 16,000 miles scheduled service requiring more frequent servicing and warning that due to oil dilution triggering the oil service warning the owner must have the oil changed immediately to avoid engine damage.
I have several issues with the response when referencing against the kindly provided internal JLRP00100 Service bulletin on this thread. Also when I bought my Range Rover last November there was no brochures available at the dealership or on line as they had been replaced with the MY18 Facelift versions. Also as the servicing is now recorded online at LR Dealers I have no Servicing Booklet in with my Vehicle Manual.
The issue has now been lifted to Black Horse Finance who I used to purchase the vehicle and they are speaking to JLR Customer Services and I also sat in with the Service Manager at the selling dealership for two hours earlier this week providing him with copies of all correspondence so that he also submits a Customer complaint through Marshall LR own Customer Service Manager.
Because I alerted the dealership before the six month point and clearly the RR 3.0 TDV6 is not delivering on my expectations it appears I may be able to reject the vehicle, It will be a sad day if it does get returned as its the best LR product I have owned but JLR just need to swallow the honesty pill and accept they need to sort this issue out.

United Kingdom 2017 Range Rover Vogue SE TDV6 Loire Blue

Hi Paul, this is very interesting as we purchased/financed ours at the end of December and it is booked in for a service next month. As this is the earliest that they could get the car in....this service will be carried out just before it is 6 months old. Meaning to me if they don’t give a satisfactory outcome/answer to the early service and ad Blue situation. Would this be recourse to reject the vehicle?

The car is superb in every way, and it’s the last thing I would want to do! On the flip side we have the car over a 4 year finance agreement (to tie in with the completely new model was the thought) I don’t want the niggle that year 4 I will have issues with it!

Interesting times ahead.....

Further update to early oil service/oil dilution issue with my TDV6 . Still in dialogue with JLR Customer Service, also in dialogue with Land rover finance (Black Horse) Still in dialogue with Service Manager at my supplying dealership.
New last Saturday 2500 miles since the early oil service I have Service due countdown 1850 miles showing, checking sub menu its another oil service due then after 100 mile drive at the weekend its now due service at 1350 miles have arranged a dealer visit but due to loading cant be done until early July so with joke service due countdown will have to park it up to ensure I do not exceed the service point and have the whole sorry oil dilution/DPF Regeneration turned around as my fault.
Its been announced this week Mercedes are now being fined for cheating the emissions testing in Europe I think the next headline has got to be Land rover (and that will be ford and Peugeot as the big diesels are all from Power Train) as the current diesels must be borderline to euro 6 compliance after the DPF regen. software and increased Adblu cycles were introduced last year and as no diesels Range Rovers are available to order post September delivery at the moment when euro 6+ compliance comes into effect.
All a bit of a mess and really can't be doing with 4-5000 mile oil changes and waiting around dealerships.

Scotland 2017 Range Rover Autobiography 5.0 SC V8 Corris Grey

When I was deciding what to do i asked both at the dealer and at LRCR about real world emissions for the 4.4 SDV8. Neither knew anything. Research online revealed nothing for the 4.4 but a test of the RR Sport 3.0TDV6 (presumably a similar engine to that in the RR) showed it was emitting about three times what it did in the current laboratory test in a real world scenario, and it was given a second chance on an "engine warmed up" basis, when the result was better, but not that much better. My conclusion was that the diesels were way off real world test compliance.

The answer for me was the 5.0SC and I am happy so far.

The press were suggesting that Discovery production being moved to Slovakia was partly in order to make space for electric/hybrid etc powertrain development at Solihull. We will see, but it's obviously not an answer for your problems in the short term, I sympathise. Only Range Rovers since 1988
