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

ConsumerWatch / Motoring Aug 11, 2018 - 07:58 PM GMT

By: N_Walayat

ConsumerWatch

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 tracked my service counter quite closely and booked a service at my local land rover dealer (Guy Salmon) when it appeared on the Dash warning that a service would be due in 750 miles, where the booking was 15 days in advance which is the earliest one can book at Guy Salmon.

Anyway fast forward about 100 miles later and 15 days with Dash warning now at zero and I am off to a Land Rover dealer for my Discovery Sports first service at a starting cost of £447! So not cheap!, and I was dreading any extras they will come up with such as break pads. Whilst the tyres are fine though you never know! Anyway this is what to expect from a expensive service at a Land Rover Dealer, and before you ask why did I pay so much when I could get it done much cheaper elsewhere, well I chose a local Land Rover dealer as the car is still under warranty.

The service revealed an 'issue' relating to Inchcape's approved used sales that does not match up to reality of what customers apparently get, for an investigation into that ensure you are subscribed to my youtube channel for my new videos in this Land Rover Discovery Sport series.
