Corrosion warranty won't cover

Post by Grego197 » Thu Jun 10, 2021 6:38 pm

Hello there I thought I would have a quick look under my f pace it's a 2017 r sport with 39000 miles on it the underbody didn't look bad just the normal on the suspension bits etc. The bit that shocked me was in both rear wheel arch areas around shocker mounts so I had a trip to my local jlr dealer and was told warranty will not cover that. I then rang jlr customer services and was told the same. I am raising this because mine will not be the only one and recommend anyone with older ones to check them. There's no stone guard on this area this should have been put on in the factory. It's really annoying talking to jlr. I think I know what I'm talking about since I spent 33 years in the paintshop of large car factory in the North East. I'm sure the warranty says they will sort any corrosion on the body up to six years.

Another case of JLR penny pinching and cutting costs and so by receiving inferior products. Rusting Brake discs are another typical example which JLR attributes to fair wear and tear. Disappointing attitude from a company offering up market cars!

I couldn't agree more, had the first MOT on my 2017 F Pace last year, which cost £976 all the brake disks and pads needed to be replaced. My dealer said it was a problem but JLR was having none of it.

Hello again just a quick update since jaguar are not going to help I had to do it myself. As I mentioned I used to work in a car factory paint shop where we made cars for a third of the price of the f pace but had stone guard in all the places there was no underbody protection I struggle to understand why it's not on properly only cost about 50 p per body.
