Responsible regulator

Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Regional Development is the responsible regulator for this recall.


and …

… and while changing the oil we’ll just plug this little cable into your ECU and reflash it … just so it’s the ‘latest version’ …???



Perhaps Jaguar drivers really expect to be, ‘treated differently’. Unlikely?

Although the recall action suggested may be a more widespread and well established behaviour.

Our Toyota had a recall back around 2012.

We rang to make a booking at the local Toyota dealer’s service centre. The service staff were apparently enthusiastic/pushy to the extreme about the next service. The vehicle had not seen a Toyota dealer for many years! There are other providers who have done the job for us, although you do need to ensure they fill out the maintenance log book as evidence. Despite being a 30 minute job (or less) it seemed all too hard for the service centre to fit us in just for a recall.

Rational vs emotion, (insight vs fear) they found the purse strings of the softer one.

Wiser the next time!
