I went to Hornburg Land Rover yesterday to get scheduled maintenance done, oil change, checking all fluids, etc.

The service advisor gave me a call and told me I had a small leak in my radiator and that it will cost me $950 to fix. I did notice small drops of coolant on my garage floor but nothing to get me alarmed about. But $950!! I am planning on using some stop leak additive for the short term but going to an independent LR mechanic here in LA.

Btw, the service was horrible. I pull into the service center and wait outside by my car. Nobody comes to assist me until 10 min later and it is the service lot attendant who is checking my car for damage first and putting on the plastic cover on my driver's seat. Then a few more min goes by and he then tells me I have to go find a service advisor who is available in their office. I find someone and finally ask for assistance and let him know that every single time I've come to their LR service center, I always have to wait around. Why is LR service so terrible? I've gotten better customer service at other vehicle dealerships. The LR salesman will do anything to sell you a RR but their service center will do anything but provide good customer service. Just a lil rant.

dude find out where your leaking from first of all... as in climb under your pig and take a look and have the tech point it out to you

if its leaking at a connection spot you can have any mechanic (or you) tighten it up, if it requires your pig to be drained for the fix, this still isnt something extensive that would keep you or any other mechanic from doing it

first things first, taking a look with your own two, it will be a lot cheaper than whippin out your checkbook and paying for an extended warranty

btw gunnar, the leaking problems we have with our 2003s are different then the leaking problems the 2006 MY has, the BMW drivetrain rovers have the "oh so brilliant" metal to plastic tranny oil cooler to radiator connection that leaks quite a bit.

I'm planning on taking a look this weekend when I have some time. I've read arnoldrover's thread on his coolant leak and going to check it out once I get the plastic skid plate off. Thanks for help gw.
