    Hi all

    I've just bought a RR vogue se 2018 from a local dealership and noticed that after going on a 30 minute drive there was smoke coming from the front, I popped the hood and it was originating from the passenger side by the windscreen near the back of the plastic cover (right side at the back as you're looking into the engine bay) do you guys have any ideas what might be causing this? I've got a vid of this if that helps, I called lr and they suggested to call the assistance number but then the smoke dissipated so didnt bother ... I thought nothing of it but its happened again tonight when I pulled up at home I noticed smoke coming from the front where the lights were shining in the dark so could see it, I then lifted the lid but couldn't see anything.. BTW its got 4000 miles on the clock and was an ex demonstrator... Thanks, Den

    It's a tdv6 automatic..

    Smoke from under the bonnet of a pretty much brand new £70k motor and you didn't take it back immediately?

    He's not rational. He's on a posting frenzy. It's like wearing blinders.

    First point. It is under warranty. Get it back to LR and let them sort it. Do not dismiss anything that seems out of the ordinary, you have paid an awful lot of money for their support, use it. Even if they don't find anything you have put down a marker that all may not be right.
    Second point. Smoke or steam/water vapour? A quick sniff should tell you.
    Third point. Did I mention that it is under warranty? :)

    Deffo not water vapour or steam, had a burning type smell to it, but then again, I'm no mechanic... Oh, and it's under warranty if I didn't mention it before. Lol

    I think you mentioned it whilst I was typing. :)
    If it is a burning smell make sure that they not only find the source and fix it, but assess any surrounding damage and fix that too even if the affected bit is still working. You don't want something to fail due to heat damage later on after the warranty has expired.
