Nikos from Manchester
I was very skeptical initially with the service I was going to be provided by Fixter. Nevertheless it is very convenient that they come and get your car from any place and date. So I booked for a major service on the date and place I wanted. On that day, a guy came with his folded bike (10mins late)...

The alternator is the device responsible for generating electricity to charge the battery. It’s coupled with the engine drive, which means whenever the car is running, the battery is being charged. Without a charged battery there is no delivery of power to the electrical components or to generate the sparks used to combust the fuel in the engine.
An alternator typically lasts around 7 years or between 100k and 150k miles.
Without a correctly functioning alternator, your car is unlikely to hold enough charge in the battery to drive for any purposeful length of time. Having said that, the alternator won’t be tested during an MOT, so as long as the battery has enough charge for the engine and other electrical components to run for the duration of the examination, then it can still achieve a pass. We do not recommend this in any circumstance. If there is a problem with your alternator, you should have it repaired or replaced as soon as possible.
An alternator might break down due to a bearing failure, preventing the rotor from spinning freely. Fluid leaks or a too tight belt (or a loose belt slipping) can also cause damage and premature wearing.
If your battery is flat and refuses to accept charge through normal driving, then your alternator could be the problem.
If your headlamps aren’t as bright as normal or the function of other electrical components is weak, your alternator may not be supplying as much charge to the battery as it needs.
All warning lights are an indicator that a sensor has detected a failed component or poor operation. A battery warning light could be connected to your alternator performance.
Land Rover is a luxury car brand that specialises in 4-wheel-drive vehicles.
Regarded as a British icon, the company came into effect in 1978, but previous versions were built as part of the Rover Company, dating back as early as 1947.
It is currently part of Jaguar Land Rover; owned by India’s Tata Motors since its acquisition in 2008.
The number of Land Rovers on the roads continues to grow. This could be due to a rise in popularity or their indestructible nature and go anywhere, handle anything design and build.
There are around 940k on the UK roads today—and not just on the roads—they’re authentic working vehicles chosen by the majority as their commercial off-roader of choice.
The once army-style paint schemes and boxy vehicles of yesteryear have long-since been replaced by the modern Land Rover. These cars offer genuine luxury interiors, advanced media and drive control technology, and look every inch the part working on a farm, climbing through forestry or attending a charity event at Sandringham or Kensington.
The ultimate Range Rover starts with a price tag of £83k, and for that you’ll get a car with class-leading features, excellent components and incredible off-road performance. It’s a first-class travel experience with tomorrow’s technology built in. Every element has been scrupulously designed—and it shows.
Land Rover shamefully ranked 30th out of 30 car brands in the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018. For an off-roader designed to go anywhere, you’d expect it to be indestructible, but it scored only 76.5% reliability from its drivers taking part in the survey.
Various recalls have been made on Land Rover models throughout their motoring history. The following are a list of the most recent in the UK and Europe.
The indicated fuel level may be inaccurate
Certain vehicles fitted with 2.0L diesel engines may emit excessive levels of CO2
The crankshaft pulley retaining bolt may fracture
The directional indicators may fail to operate due to faulty software
The autonomous emergency braking feature may not activate
The fuel level gauge does not work properly for fuel levels below 30%
The heating, ventilation and air conditioning system may fail to de-mist the interior windows
The brazing of the fuel rail end caps may not properly seal the fuel rail ends
