I just took my sport in for service and told them about how there would be a squealing sound when I applied the ebrake and they said that they cant' do anything about it b/c I have aftermarket brembos on the sport. Has this happened to anyone else on stock brakes or is it really b/c of the aftermarket brakes? Thanks

Also, I bought my sport in aug 06 and they said that this is my last free service (but my warranty doesn't expire until next year). Is our maintenance only 3 years?

My guess is that the park brake squealing has nothing to do with your rear aftermarket Brembos, the EPB is notoriously problematic in these cars and there are several TSBs addressing squeals and lockups. Unfortunately, you realize it would be difficult to disprove the theory of the dealer if you wanted to escalate this... You can try another dealer but you may get the same type of response. That's the risk you take when installing aftermarket parts. You may have to suck it up and take it to a good independent Land Rover shop to get this looked over, on your dime. :( Take this TSB with you as it may help troubleshooting the cause of the screech: download/file.php?id=1729

The part about the complimentary maintenance is true. You get the first 6 services performed free of charge, every 6 months or 7500 miles whichever occurs first. So, if you are about to hit 3 years of ownership this will be your last freebie, even though you have less than 45K miles on the odometer. If it makes you feel any better, Land Rover North America is phasing out the free scheduled maintenance program on new cars, rumor is that MY2010s will only get the first service performed for free, at 1-year or 15K miles. The warranty is on a different term, 4 years or 50K miles.

Umberto,

Thanks for your response. I called my salesperson and told him about this and he will look into it to see if they can do the work under warranty. I appreciate the help.

Emailed you back
