I looked into putting in a recon engine, as that looks like a much cheaper alternative. All the garages were offering a 1 year warrantee, but they had not been trading for a year, so I didn't feel convinced that this was a great route. I'm going to get my car brought back to my driveway and get my solicitor to send LR a letter, and take it from there. If you look online, you can see that the timing chain and the turbo are both issues with this car, that they know about, but can't be bothered to fix because the cars affected are out of warrantee and so there's apparently no leg to stand on. Trading Standards might help if there are a few complaints, as the car is simply not fit for purpose. If anyone else is taking their matter further, feel free to contact me if you think it would be beneficial.Just experienced a similar issue on 17 reg HSE Black with 49k on the clock. Restricted performance light came on last Monday. Left it on the drive until the Wednesday, then drove to my mechanic. DPF light came on en route (12 mile journey). He’s run diagnostics and it needs a new turbo (it’s seized), a DPF, oil pump, chains & return pipes and timing chain needs replacing. Over £4k in parts alone. Emailed LR, no response. Call center closed due to unforeseen circumstances. Mechanic (ex LR) reckons they are having huge issues as a result of this engine. Anyone had any success in claiming? I dare not have the work done until I receive a response from LR.
