Premature Brake Disc Corrosion

Post by Kog9 » Thu Mar 12, 2020 8:48 pm

At only covering 10k miles a Landrover Technician has highlighted that I have signs of corrosion during a service,
Is this possible to be rectified under warranty ?

I had this on my previous Evoque a couple of years ago. Picked up on first service and the dealer remedied under warranty without even being prompted.

I have a similar issue, my local dealer (there is just one in Bulgaria) pretty much ignored me. The whole brake assembly looks as if it's some Dacia or old Mazda...

I was informed by my dealer that JLR will no longer replace rusty brake discs under warranty mainly due to the spending freeze that is affecting all departments. This is not a good situation but should be a timely lesson to the purchasing department at JLR that sourcing cheap products and squeezing suppliers on price is not good for customer relations and satisfaction.

@Spencerwilks: That is more than bad news. Doesn’t JLR have a legal obligation under its warranty contracts with customers???? I would be surprised if JLR could just simply get away with this, at least here in Switzerland.

Warranties generally do not affect your statutory rights so if a product is not of merchantable quality or is not fit for for the purpose intended then there may be a legal claim. If you have legal cover as part of your motor or home insurance it may be worth calling the provider for advice.

Thanks, Harry. Exactly what I was thinking. So I would certainly raise this with JLR.
