    2019 Discovery SDV6 HSE Santorini Black

    2018 Discovery Sport - 240hp diesel

    My Dad's looking at one - were these afflicted by the same oil change issues as 2018 Discovery's?

    He's getting pricing on a March 2018 one from the dealer with 5k miles on it, and a brand new 2019 stock car.

    Keen to know if both have "safe" engines to buy!

    Thanks...

    The early oil change issues were on the TDV6 3Ltr, not the 240BHp 4 pot ingenium engines

    Mav on discosport says his 240 is fine for oil dilution, others disagree. not many around to get a fair sample.
    Mines a DS180 does around 11000 on a change, otherwise its a fine car. Being a 2017 I get fee oil changes not sure about 2018's thats down to negotiation powers.

    brand new Id go for the petrol personally

    The DS 240hp engine seems a safe bet, but its not a car I would personally buy and I’ve had two in the past, including a 2018 one.

    They suffer from B pillar rattles, rusted rear brakes, paint defects, dodgy electrics, throttle lag and a whole multitude of other problems. I just wouldn’t take the risk. Pick a Volvo XC40/60. Thumbs Up

    Well he's gone for one - and a very nicely spec'd HSE LUX too.

    Just one question, which is the forum I should suggest he join, from the same people who run Disco5.co.uk. I can't see one listed at the bottom of the homepage, and the ones which come up via Google search... well, I can't tell if I'm finding the "right" one...?

    Maybe he should do a search and pop in to the different forums, however there really is only one https://www.discosportforums.co.uk but beware, the majority have had problems with their Disco Sport and are very vocal about it.

    There's a post somewhere (might be on disco4.com) where Martin explained he doesn't run a disco sport forum as another had beaten him to it. I'll see if I can find it.

    I'm wrong about Martin not having a forum - http://discosport.com/forum/

    But supposedly it isn't very active.

    Ahhhh, so that's why I didn't recognise the "style" of the other forums...!

    OK, if they are overly negative, I'll keep off them.

    He's got himself a lovely looking black/black 2019 HSE LUX, so fingers crossed he'll be lucky.

    Don’t bother with this forum. It’s mostly dictated by a few very negative users with big chips on their shoulders. Once joined you’d wish you’d never bought a DS.

    That official sister site to this for Disco Sport is just full of spammer content - all the posts are junk... Surprised it's still live!
