How Often to Change Engine Oil and Filter Land Rover Discovery Sport / ConsumerWatch / Motoring

By: N_Walayat

The latest video in my Land Rover Discovery Sports series answers the question of how often should Disco Sport owners change their car's engine oil and filter. Which is not as obvious as it should be for Land Rover sales pitch is to change your engine oil once every 2 years or 21,000 miles, which ever comes first. But as my video reveals that may not work in real world, so owners could be putting their cars engines at risk if they relied just on the sales pitch and left the oil change for the 2 year service.

Land Rover Discovery Sport 'Approved Used' Bad Paint Job - Inchcape Chester / ConsumerWatch / Motoring

By: N_Walayat

Following my Land Rover Discovery Sports 1st service at 15,000 miles at a Land Rover dealer (Guy Salmon, Sheffield) I now have another item to add to my Inchcape list of issues, including fixes promised that would be rectified at time of purchase that never were, such as a ripped door fabric. However, this may be the most serious to date, as apparently at least one of the panels has a bad paint job that is now disintegrating.

So watch the video which acts as a warning to all those who are thinking of buying an APPROVED USED Land Rover, because "Approved Used" is just a sales pitch Land Rover dealers successfully use so that customers let their guards down. For instance the 'bad paint job' should be fixed under warranty but of course the dealer says its no, which means APPROVED USED is just a hit or miss sales pitch, either that or Land Rovers factory paint sucks.

Witty Teen, With the Help of His Parents, Steals from a Maltese Online Casino / ConsumerWatch / Gambling

By: John_York

Sometimes, with the help of your savvy and a lucky set of circumstances, you can make a fortune and spend a huge part of your life celebrating and rejoicing. It must be the most desirable scenario of almost every human, in particular, the young generation who appear to be completely nuts about money. Something similar happened to a teenager from Finland, who managed to find a glitch at a Maltese online casino and rob it for over €250,000. But this fairy tale has a bitter end: contrary to all his expectations, it’s unlikely that he will spend his next years partying. Despite the minority, the young man is brought to justice, just like his parents, who were most likely involved in this event.

Lucozade Win Larazade Lara Croft Tomb Raider Prizes - Don't Bother! / ConsumerWatch / Freebies and Comps

By: HGR

Lucozade's latest promotion aptly named Larazade seeking to capitalise on the success of the latest game in the Lara Croft Tomb Raider franchise, with the promo featuring a healthy list of potential prizes to be won all for just entering the code off of a Larazade lucozade bottle. Such as £1000 X40, 100 XBox One consoles and 200 Tomb raider games. All of which sounds good on paper, however there is a fly in the ointment which is that when one comes to trying to decipher the codes on the bottles as our following video illustrates of why this promotion is probably one to give a miss!

Land Rover Discovery Sport 90% Motorway Driving MPG Fuel Economy in ECO Mode / ConsumerWatch / Motoring

By: N_Walayat

This is the latest video in out Land Rover Discovery Sport's series that answers the question of what to expect in terms of fuel economy for this great looking Land Rover model as compared against Land Rovers sales pitch of 53.3 MPG, which in reality no one really expects to achieve. Still here is what to expect from a 2 year old Land Rover Discovery Sport in the month immediately after a full dealer service, with 90% of the driving down on Britain's motorways such as the M1, M6 and A1 roads on road trips from Sheffield to London, Warrick, and Blackpool and back.

Land Rover Discovery Sport 1st Dealer Oil Change Service - What to Expect / ConsumerWatch / Motoring

By: N_Walayat

Land Rover's sales pitch is that the Discovery Sport's first service is due at 21,000 miles or 2 years, thus saving owners on expensive annual services. That and their service packs only tend to cover for 1 service every 2 years which may be the reason for the 21,000 miles service sales pitch. Unfortunately on the one hand there's the sales pitch and then there's the reality of what to actually expect when owning and driving a Land Rover Discovery Sport as the two don't quite tend to match.

For instance, the internet is littered with comments about how warnings are popping up on owner dashboards requesting an oil service for a potential multitude of reasons such as diesel getting into the engines? which in some examples oil change services are being requested at less than 7,000 miles!

So I decided to track the service indicator for my HSE Black for when the car would request a service and this is the resulting video that all DISCO Sport owners should take note of, that they should NOT rely on the 21k sales pitch but check their oil service mileage indicator on a regular basis, else risk being in for an unexpected dash shock message that an oil service is now due!

In this video I answer the question of just how closely Land Rover Discovery Sports fuel economy compares against Land Rovers 53.3 MPG sales pitch, as knowing what a car will actually do under real driving conditions is a very important consideration when buying any new car. This test is of driving 1100 miles in ECO Mode so as to maximise fuel economy of what to expect from a 18 month old Land Rover Discovery Sport that has done about 14,000 miles from new where the driving was approx 50% on motorways (50-70 mph) and the balance on city driving.

By: N_Walayat

Summers here and everyone's off to the theme parks where your likely to come across the 2 Minute Hanging from a Bar Challenge to win a big toy prize or even cash!

So here we take a close look at the actual bar, to see how much it actually spins, and several things instantly stand out as you will see in the video such as that the bar is ultra smooth! And has ball bearings which makes it very easy to spin. So watch the video of why you should think twice before handing over cash. However I also do show how you can actually hold on for the whole 2 minutes.
