Broken crankshaft on Land Rover Discovery 3

Answered by CarsGuide 28 Jul 2017

It’s a problem believed caused by the incorrect location of the main bearing shells during assembly, or through rotation of the shells in normal use blocking off the oil supply. I would contact Land Rover without delay, do it before you have the engine replaced if you can, so you can establish how helpful the company will be before you spend your money. With the low kilometres I think you have a good case for compensation, even though your car is 9 years old. Hopefully you have a good record of regular servicing.

Toyota Land Cruiser vs Land Rover Defender

Answered by CarsGuide 21 Jul 2017

Both are perfect for what you want to do. The LandCruiser has a well-proven record, but it’s heavy and can be costly to run. The Defender, while also a proven off-roader, is more expensive the service and repair and there aren’t Land Rover dealers everywhere, like there are Toyota dealers.

Good SUV for outback caravan towing

Answered by CarsGuide 19 Jun 2017

The Discovery hasn’t done a lot of kays for its age, presumably those it has done have been tooling around town. If it’s in great shape, has been well maintained and serviced and hasn’t been used off-road I would tend to go for the Land Rover. Against that the Jeep has a good reputation as a towing vehicle, and it’s new, which adds to its appeal.

How important is getting regular services?

Answered by CarsGuide 5 May 2017

The recommended interval is 24,000 km or 12 months, not 24,000 km and how ever many months it might take to do 24,000 km. The time recommendation is specified to cover those items that deteriorate with time rather than kays. Have the service done.
