Just have a question I Took my sport in last week for its normal 37,500 check up and they didn't rotate the tires is this a lazy dealership or is a crazy thought. I did not ask for it to be done but expected it. I figured that these check ups were in depth. Guess maybe I was wrong or asking for too much. Any clue if this was supposed to be done. Thanks for your times guys

Actually, the 2006-2009 RRS Maintenance Chart only calls for tire rotation every 12 months or 15k miles, so if they rotated them at the 30K-mile service they are not required to do so again until the 45K-mile stop. The 37.5K/30mo scheduled service is just a glorified oil change.

WHAT??? is this true? i just had my first 7500 oil change service at LR Pasadena and the service guy told me that tire rotation is recommended every 7500 miles. I thought this was a little too early cause they charged me $80 to rotate and balance my tires, which means every time i get my oil changed i'm required to pay additional 80 bucks for a tire rotation?

Back when there was a complimentary maintenance on new Land Rovers, they had to rotate tires every 15K miles or 12 months at no charge - that was part of the deal. Now that new Land Rover vehicles don't include maintenance freebies anymore, I guess they can hit you with whatever fees you are willing to pay, like my local Jiffy Lube :lol: . Personally I don't think you need rotation and balancing every 7500 miles myself, but it's your call. Most reputable tire shops (America's Tire, Costco, just some examples) will do all that for free when you buy new tires from them.

I had a pleasant surprise after getting it serviced at Pasadena LR. My 2009 RRS qualified for a free oil change!!! How was that possible? I thought they took out the free maintenance service on my model year? I only had to pay for the tire rotation of $80. Another surprise was they paid for 2 days of my rental car. It was mentioned in a previous thread that they only paid for one day. But this time, they paid for 2.

FYI, i bought my RRS at another dealer. Overall, i was very happy with my first LR service at LR Pasadena. I'm a return customer. However, there are 2 out of 7 issues that were not solved. First was the front and rear cigarette lighters didn't charge my phone nor my ipod with the engine on. Second, i complained about my memory seat and they found nothing wrong with it. Told them that it's not retaining it's memory settings and that the side mirror doesn't dip down when i put it on reverse (sometimes not all the time). They told me that there was no service bulletin for this problem.
