  1. Windshield VIN tag moisture

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Took my 3 week old RRS SVR on a trip yesterday through intermittent sometimes heavy rain. Noticed today the windshield VIN tag is area has significant moisture build up. I personally don’t care if it eventually evaporates as long as water isn’t getting into the cabin. Anyone know what the design...

  7. 2012 5.0 Timing Chain Issue VIN Range?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I'm looking to replace my 2004 with a higher mileage (120k) 2012, but am wary of the timing chain issues that I've already had a heck of a time dealing with with a warranty. I've heard they updated the guides some time in late 2012, does anyone know of a way to find these trucks? Thanks

    I'm looking to buy my first Land Rover. It's a private sale of a 2014 Range Rover Sport SC V8 and I'm just being extra cautious and want to confirm the VIN # on the windshield matches. It's a Canadian vehicle so I think the door sticker will have it but there should be one somewhere else too ?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Mechanic that was supposed to be replacing valve cover, and timing cover gaskets tells me that when he started into it he found that the coils were covered in coolant. He said he pressurized the cooling system and could find no leak. He said he was unwilling to attempt a repair. With that kind...
