I also had the service required message pop up as well. The car has done just over 2000 miles and it was indicating that a service was required in around 1500 miles which equates to only 3500 miles!
Anyway Barretts Land Rover in Ashford paid me a visit to rectify another issue I was having with my vehicle, which I will mention elsewhere in the forum, and they have informed me that it's definitely an error and can be rectified with a software upload. However, will need to book in the car for this but apparently there is no rush. According to the guy I spoke to the first service should be around 2 years or 18-20000 miles whichever comes first for the 3L diesel. Is this correct?

If you have any doubt at all, who not have the oil changed and get a sample of it tested? You have nothing to lose and all to gain.

Hi all,
Just had my vehicle back to main agents for the second time because of the service light, this time at 12400 miles. It was last there in August for the same fault. This time it also was intermittently showing check spare tyre pressure and DAB radio kept dropping out To give Farnell’s at Bury their due, they again changed the oil and filter. They updated the software again. Apparently another new update came out for this last week it takes 3 hours to download. They have also told me that new updates for the DAB and also the problems with in-control should be out in January.

Hi all,
My 18plate TD6 HSE is 6 months old, and has done 2500 miles, and the ‘Service required’ message is on the dash!
Is this a record?
It was telling me ‘service required in 500 miles’ a few weeks ago, but I ignored it as I thought it was a glitch.
I asked my dealer if it was normal? And he said,, Yes, you’ll need to book it in for a service’.
So, it’s booked in for a service this week.
I’m hoping whatever servicing / software upgrades are covered under warranty/ service pack.

Hi - I have the same issue - mine has done 2800 miles of mixed journeys and the service due indicator has just come on. There are lots of posts on this forum about oil dilution....Pity i didn’t know about this before buying it....What did you dealer do? Did you have to pay for an oil change?

I rejected my car as it was less than a month old - got FULL refund
