I am inclined to think that LR have not taken this seriously as the problem exists in my MY20 car.
Like many, we noticed fumes in the car normally after a shortish journey at constant speed then coming to a junction stop. The smell then invades the cabin. We reported this and had the car in for checks (other issues as well) and they reported no fault found. Long story short, we ended up being advised by LR that we should call LR assist who duly arrived, found the problem in 10 mins and created this report.

"Customer reports can smell exhaust fumes inside vehicle 1. Run diagnostics, no related dtcs2. Check live data and has done 41 miles since last diesel particulate filter regeneration, soot content @93. Remove turbo clamp heat shield and found signs of an exhaust leak, not excessive but leaking Suspect turbo gasket and clamp required"
This tallied with our last "fumes event" which was approx 40 mins from home :)

The car was delivered on Oct 31st, ex factory early October - so despite the plethora of reports, the factory are still knocking out faulty units.

I'm just glad that we got a definitive cause after a slopey shouldered service department were unable to.

Now, onto that other pesky problem ...

Looks like the same old faults are reappearing in the new model, has there been any reported DPF/ EGR problems reported.

Hi Nickk, so they actually found that there was a leak.

I have no noticeable smells in the car unless a regen is or has recently happened, if I stop at a junction somewhere I then get that familiar regen smell. I assumed it was normal, but you were getting clear exhaust smells in the car at other times?

Hi in the end. Yes, it was my Wife that pointed it out.
I thought it was normal, but when she noticed it and flagged it with me, it was then obviously fumes. Even when stopping when regenerating I don't think you should be getting fumes in the car so it sounds like you may need a replacement gasket like us.
That was the outcome for us, and they are apparently working on fitting the new one today.
