How Often to Change Engine Oil and Filter Land Rover Discovery Sport / ConsumerWatch / Motoring

By: N_Walayat

The latest video in my Land Rover Discovery Sports series answers the question of how often should Disco Sport owners change their car's engine oil and filter. Which is not as obvious as it should be for Land Rover sales pitch is to change your engine oil once every 2 years or 21,000 miles, which ever comes first. But as my video reveals that may not work in real world, so owners could be putting their cars engines at risk if they relied just on the sales pitch and left the oil change for the 2 year service.

Land Rover Discovery Sport 'Approved Used' Bad Paint Job - Inchcape Chester / ConsumerWatch / Motoring

By: N_Walayat

Following my Land Rover Discovery Sports 1st service at 15,000 miles at a Land Rover dealer (Guy Salmon, Sheffield) I now have another item to add to my Inchcape list of issues, including fixes promised that would be rectified at time of purchase that never were, such as a ripped door fabric. However, this may be the most serious to date, as apparently at least one of the panels has a bad paint job that is now disintegrating.

So watch the video which acts as a warning to all those who are thinking of buying an APPROVED USED Land Rover, because "Approved Used" is just a sales pitch Land Rover dealers successfully use so that customers let their guards down. For instance the 'bad paint job' should be fixed under warranty but of course the dealer says its no, which means APPROVED USED is just a hit or miss sales pitch, either that or Land Rovers factory paint sucks.

By: John_York

Sometimes, with the help of your savvy and a lucky set of circumstances, you can make a fortune and spend a huge part of your life celebrating and rejoicing. It must be the most desirable scenario of almost every human, in particular, the young generation who appear to be completely nuts about money. Something similar happened to a teenager from Finland, who managed to find a glitch at a Maltese online casino and rob it for over €250,000. But this fairy tale has a bitter end: contrary to all his expectations, it’s unlikely that he will spend his next years partying. Despite the minority, the young man is brought to justice, just like his parents, who were most likely involved in this event.
