    you guys on the Natal coast sure have it rough with vehicles rusting.
    i feel for you.
    how can a manufacturer dissuade people from trying to protect their vehicle?
    does not make sense.

    Hi Landyluvver, (preferred the shorter pink version)

    Unless you drive in salt water, then.

    Decent modern cars dont rust (like they used to) - period. Not even in KZN. OK - maybe defender doors.

    But for all the rest you have at least up to 10 years without serious problems. This is achieved by modern materials and rust prevention techniques and mechanical design.

    If a manufacturer gives you a 5 or 10 year rust guarantee and you go and add some gunk that blocks draining holes or traps water or s$&t under the skin then it is your problem.

    Honestly I have owned all my cars from 1973 till now in Durban, and there have been HUGE advances in anti rust technolgy on cars.

    Cheers

    LL is fine.
    really thinking about changing my username.
    LL makes it easier.
    Maybe should change it to LOL!

    glad to hear that.
    other than materials like galvanising or cadmium plating, what other rust prevention measures are generally employed on newer Landies?

    Hi Fluffy

    The salesman at LR gave the business card of someone who does anticorrosion coatings and said it's a good idea. Of course - that doesn't mean LR approve of it. How do I check with LR because the dealer NEVER commits to anything in writing - they don't reply to e-mail's at all - there is NEVER anything in writing from them - something I find very concerning. Who do I check with - LRSA?

    Same with fitting an engine management system (something like Madman EMS)? The salesman says it's a good idea, the technical manager at the dealer says it's not necessary, what should I do? Does it invalidate the warranty- I can't get anything in writing from the dealer?

    Thanks

    in my opinion the majority of Land Rovers are not adequately equipped with sensors or gauges.
    something like a water level sensor should be standard.
    my take on adding extras is that the onus is on them to prove that what was fitted had a direct effect on the failure.
    they cannot void a warranty if you have a LBB fitted and the diff packs up.
    they will also very quickly duck the responsibility if the motor seizes in the event of overheating blaming it on driver negligence.
