Land Rover Discovery 4 auto gearbox sealed for life?

Asked by Neil Gilshenan

I own a Land Rover Discovery 4 that has travelled 85,000km in about five years. The owners' manual says the auto gearbox is sealed for life, so does not need regular servicing. I find it difficult to accept this would be the case, as do a number of mechanics to whom I have spoken. My normal use is general motoring and I have done several long trips, up to 7000km. I do no heavy towing and do not drive in dusty conditions.

The factory service information says the manual gearbox oil should be renewed every 10 years and the advice is 240,000km for oil and filter on autos. Tim Krieger of Jaguar Land Rover says: "The first service to be completed on a 2010 Discovery transmission would depend on the engine and transmission fitted to the vehicle. It is probably best if the customer contacts their nearest dealer to discuss further."
