Good to see that LR build quality is something of the heritage that still remains!

Odd that JLR/DfT will issue a recall for seat bolts yet DiscoSport and Evoque are suffering from collapsing steering motors due to bolt failures and nothing happens, potentially having a much worse consequence to other roads users as well as the car occupants. Double standards? Epsom Green Tdi300 County Hard Top converted into a Station Wagon
Departed - RRS2 HSE Dynamic replaced by Mini Countryman PHEV

I have no idea how these recalls are instigated, or indeed by whom ~ would be interested to know more if anyone knows any online reference material?

Does that scene from Fight Club count where Ed Norton is describing his job as an accident assessor and where costs to the company is cheaper than paying out lawsuits.


Thumbs Up
