Door handle -lock cover

Driving along an A road today, fairly busy and hear what I thought was a stone hitting the door glass on my side, glanced into the wing mirror to see a small piece of plastic bouncing along the road behind me, thought it was just some debris so carried on. Got home, got out the car and the piece of plastic I saw departing was infact the cover for lock on the door handle, great!!

Immediately spoke to the dealer and apparently it’s a very common problem on sports which is covered by my warranty, got to order one in then get it painted same colour. Will take a week!!

So who else has lost one ? Glad it’s covered but I’d expect them to stay on given it’s a luxury car!

I lost the drivers side a few weeks ago & told the same story about it being a fault but,,the dealer told me the approved warranty doesn’t cover it so it cost me £12.08 for a new one & my friend painted it for me.I told the dealer that’s the last vehicle I will buy from them after spending just under about 90k in the last 3 years with them on 2cars.

I’ve just dug the invoices out for the last 2 vehicles I bought from said dealer,,59k for my sport & 38k for the evoque so 97k in total & they charge me £12.08 for a door cap that is a known fault. Andy.

This Dealership must be managed by idiots.

I lost my cap on both l494s a few times and nobody would bother me with cost for such a bad construction from my dealership.

The loss for your dealer is much higher as you buy the next car not from them and furthermore you don’t recommend them anymore. 2015 RRS DYNAMIC HYBRID, CAUSEWAY GREY 1/15-7/18

Approved Warranty loop holes

JLR approved warranty:-
It does not cover a door handle component
It does not cover crankshafts
So what does JLR approved warranty cover Question I assume it covers something Whistle In Spain - 2018 F Pace - Down and out's Velar
In UK - Not saying, but its NOT a Muddy Milk Float.
Gone - A couple of RRS, A couple of Disco's. Plus loads of cars, some I'm too ashamed to mention.

We would rather have £12.08 today than 97K in the future. Maybe that one will fall off & we will get another £12.08 from him Rolling with laughter Common sense does not exist with some dealers. Name & shame them
