The Range Rover pioneered the luxury-SUV trend over three decades ago. The current model comes with a host of high-end amenities and safety features. Developed by former-owner BMW and powered by a BMW V8, it delivers smooth, strong acceleration; mechanical refinement; and a very comfortable ride, although handling isn't quite BMW-agile. While the steering is responsive, body roll is evident on winding roads.

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.
