New batteries keep going bad

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have replaced my battery 3 times and
each time the new battery is damaged
beyond use. It under warranty, however I
feel at this point it's my Range Rover with
an electrical problem. Any suggestions?

Definitely have the charging system tested. Sounds like the alternator could be overcharging the battery. When this happens the battery gasses and the acid basically boils out and kills the battery. You should be able to smell that. It'll be a pungent odor near the battery. This gas is flammable so don't smoke when poking around the battery!! HTH. -Jim
