This luxury SUV is aimed at people whose idea of roughing it includes style, comfort, and Old World English ambience. It comes with lots of luxury amenities, as well as a permanent four-wheel-drive system. The Range Rover also features air suspension, which can lower the body when parked to make getting in and out easier; once you're under way, it automatically rises again.

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
