    2012 Pure Plus. 86,400. Exhaust in the cabin only at cold start up. Cracked exhaust manifold; however, at the engine flange at the end pipe, not near the turbo. If I had figured it out last year my extended warranty would have covered it. About $4,000! Ouch.

    yeah I thought that was the most common place for them to break. It sucks because they seem to all break between 50k and 90k miles. There is an aftermarket cast exhaust manifold that you can get from ebay or a place in Canada, but I think it is made by some company in China. I have no idea how good it is, but it would likely never break.


    UPDATE: Well my turbo may have failed today at 52k miles. I do not get the exhaust smell, but I am getting an odd/louder noise and I have little power and I have checked with an OBDII reader and I am making no boost. I'm not going to waste money on the LR one and have it fail again in 50k miles. So I guess I will try the one from Canada and replace it myself. It is about $1k. I guess LR never redesigned the part because it typically makes it past 50k miles so they make more money off of replacing them.

    Quiltrx, it looks like my turbo may have failed suddenly (no boost) so I will be needing to remove my turbo. I have been under mine a few times looking at the turbo and for the life of me I don't see how I will be able to get the turbo out without removing that sub frame. Do you have any hints or tips that might help? Would I need to take it off then separate the two halves (turbo and manifold) then bring them out separately? I am assuming you bring them out the back side of the sub frame? Thanks for any help, I really don't want to remove the sub frame.

    Comes out in one piece from the bottom, underneath, once the exhaust is out of the way there is enough room to to get it out.

    The exhaust manifold is attached to the turbo and they are sold together as one unit. So if the exhaust manifold cracks you seem to have 3 options. 1) replace the entire turbo/manifold unit 2) take them off and get a cast manifold from some place like Turbo Parts Canada, attach it to your turbo and reinstall 3) try to get someone to weld your cracked manifold.

    On mine either the turbo bearing is bad, or it has an internal crack in the exhaust manifold that is allowing parts of the manifold to come in contact with the turbine wheel so I think both will need replacing or repair.

    I wouldn't say they all fail before 90k miles, but there are quite a few that do. If you notice exhaust smells or start to hear a slight noise when the turbo spools up (mine was like a dentist drill but very quiet) then you probably have this problem or it will be coming soon.
