I assume you mean me Bought it in June with 147k on clock then joined this forum in the space of a month and under 500 miles done central locking packed in bonnet warning keeps coming on airbag warning light is latest if I go over 25 miles distance power in engine drops as though it's ready to seize other than that it's immaculate it got a full service week after I bought it so to answer your question No it ain't snapped and the shells have not turned but after reading all this I have no confidence in the car


Did you know that if you spray the LH ( air filter) side bonet catch with WD40 it will often stop the warning ?, worth a try.

England 2015 Discovery 4 3.0 TDV6 HSE Auto Santorini BlackDiscovery 4

My 64 plate D4 HSE failed catastrophically at 31 months old with less than 20K on the clock. New engine and turbos fitted courtesy of JLR (£25.5K repair). Then this morning, a power steering hose rubbed through and dumped all the fluid, suspect it wasn't put back as was!!!!

Might be a silly question but does the 3.6L V8 (as fitted in the FFRR) have the same crank issue?

No, 3.6 is safe from crank failures

Just turbos to worry about on them Laughing

Do I get 3 votes for the 2 D3s I have now not having suffered and the one I killed was still running fine until the interface with the scenery?

Is that a genuine concern on the 3.6L?

Or are you just trying to put me off a RR now? Laughing

TBH I really still want a D3 regardless of the horror stories, I have a choice of a 120mile RR (tip top condition) or a 150mile D4 (also tip top).........

Thats thousands of miles.......not that flush at the moment Big Cry
