  1. Burning plastic smell intermittently from HVAC.

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hello all, I recently bought a 2014 RRS v8 Dynamic, always been a RR fan, figured I'd get in on one cheap. So far so good, it has needed front and lower control arms replaced and the passenger front door and rear driver door actuators are in the process of being replaced. Odd for a car with...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    While my alternator is under lifetime warranty, it is annoying to keep having to replace them every month.
