Might it be sensible to ask about warranty and outcome .?

DG you might want to put "D3 not affected and D4 not affected options" - would add some context

Need to distiguish those unaffected from those just unaware of the poll. Even then, we can expect a bias towards failure. Thumbs Up

Hmmmm.. define crank failure...

If you are talking about a sheared crank, then no but if you are talking about catastrophic (but still running in a clattery, noisy fashion) following what I suspect to be rotated crank bearings, then 'yes'...

Replacement engine courtesy of JLR at 57,600 miles and less than three years old!

D4 Commercial SDV6 - Baltic Blue (gone)

D1 300TDi... 2" lift, HD bumpers (both), detachable tow hitch, 9,500lb winch, 235/85/16 muds and plenty of other toys (gone to make way for the next toy...)

In the process of building - Tornado Motorsports caged Evo 3... 100" Defender look-alike, with Range Rover running gear!

Mine failed due to thrust bearing failure - which is pretty rare especially on an auto.

Current engine is within 10K of the mileage of the old one.
