OK all you F Pace owners out there, I’ve just sent an LBA, Letter Before Action, to the Main JLR Dealer who sold me an 18 month old F Pace that had pitting and corrosion on the rear discs at 12400 miles. I’m fed up with the appalling response from both JLR and the Dealer in not accepting that it’s a Warranty issue. The fact that corrosion has been ‘allowed’ to exist and not abraded on the first application of the brakes, and the undeniable fact that the pads are not making full face contact with the discs as designed is evidence in itself of some sort of malfunction – and I intend pursuing this through the Courts under the Consumer Rights Act with reference to durability. So I’m asking for all you F Pace owners who have vehicles that have had this issue, whether resolved under Warranty or denied as a justifiable claim, to private message me with details. Model, age, mileage, advice or contributory payment received from JLR, resolved under warranty, or denied etc. etc.
It's about time this issue was widely addressed!

Your co-operation is appreciated. Regards,

Is it really worth all the time, effort and bother for court action? It's not exactly expensive to replace the rear discs and pads, if you're handy, do it yourself, and not with Jaguar supplied parts, there's plenty of 3rd party makes to select from. The reason behind non full face contact of the disc by the pads is the corrosion has abraded them so they can no longer contact the disc evenly. If the car was sold to you in this state then that's a matter of being sold a vehicle not in a roadworthy condition, which is not a warranty issue. I'd be surprised if many other owners with similar brake issues would be willing to forward their details for your use, but of course, it's their data to do with as they wish.

I've recently replaced my rear discs and pads with EBC ones. £141 for the lot so probably not really worth getting involved in a stressful legal wrangle with JLR. My 3.0S is 6 years old but the poor quality discs has always bugged me. Just need to do the fronts once the pads have worn down.
