  1. Re: Ridiculous maintenance cost of Freelander II

    Let me put it this way....

    My Golf 3 cost me over R35 000 this year My D3 around 10 000 with shocks

    When we had the Hilux, the D3 services were around 3 000 cheaper per year

    I am currently...

    Agreed that's a very bead spray pattern on the piston.

    Re: 2013 D4D Engine Bang

    Hi Grips

    Piston material may have been a contributor i.e. the final nail, but does not explain the smoke on acceleration.

    I still think there is a leak somewhere after the inter cooler.

    Discovery 4 Re: What to do ?

    I don't think so.

    My injectors and turbo lasted for over 200k km
    I only replaced my injectors because 3 were out of spec and the turbo because of turbo noise, it tested fine but was irritating.

    Re: 2013 D4D Engine Bang

    Smoke under acceleration and a burnt piston, means over fueling. If your injectors tested fine, you must also check your turbo hoses for leaks after the turbo.

    My D3 goes in there probably more than most, sometimes I just arrive without prior notice due to a problem, and I have never had an issue.

    The thing is all new models are tested on the old test tracks and the new ones created to challenge the new tech. The new LR's are still built for Africa.

    Re: What have you done with your Discovery today?

    My D3 has been remapped, the D4 not. Doubt we will ever do it.


    In my opinion, you do not need to "mess with the tuning" of the D3/4 or 5.

  27. Re: Has the LR Discovery died as an offroad vehicle? Or LR the brand in general?

    Here is the thing, probably 90% of LR's sold are Disco's, so that is what there customers want. The people buying them new want the latest tech.

    Most breakdowns are mechanical, all ECU's can be...

  29. Re: Has the LR Discovery died as an offroad vehicle? Or LR the brand in general?

    All I see is a lack of knowledge and the "electronics" that LR uses.
