LR website boo-boo

I was reading the blogs on www.austin-rover.co.uk and found a rant about how
Land Rover don't mention BL in their "heritage" info on their website.

So - you can tell I have too much time on my hands - I wandered over to look
at the LR website.

And in the section on the original series 1 Discovery on the "Discovery
heritage" page (
http://www.landrover.com/gb/en/Compa..._Discovery.htm ), I
found this:

> Discovery launched with advanced technologies such as permanent 4x4
> and the legendary Hill Descent Control included as standard


It's not just me, is it? Surely that bit about HDC is completely wrong.

But incredibly, there doesn't appear to be any way to email LR anywhere on
their entire website. And I hold out very little hope of anybody giving a
damn if I phone them, so the error will remain unless they happen to be
reading this NG...

If they ain't got communications they aint got jack. There will no
doubt be some bleating in years to come when it's another Marque to
bite the dust. Landrover couldn't afford the staff to deal with all
the complaints that an email address would spawn. Would put the spam
to shame.

Besides , they may actually begin to listen to customers and start
producing cars which are reliable , attractive to the eye and deveople
with what the end user wants rather than what gimicks will sell them
to the Corporate business executives who are about the only people who
can afford one new... and long may they continue to take the
deprictaion too.... Blessed are the Exec's!

Amazing, rang them this morning on a contact number from the web site with a
question on a superceded part. Within three rings someone picked up the
phone.
He didn't know the answer to my query, took my phone number, said he would
ask and then ring me back But I'm still waiting :-(

Hardly something to shout about. The very abscence of a mail link
speaks volumes about the company's attitude to customers!

I've got a quite a lot too - guess where some of them get their
parts/accessories from :-)

The corporate comms department is actually pretty fast and friendly.
When I wanted permission for a release it only took a few hours to
find someone who said "yes".

The people who said "no" didn't say it in writing...
