The Range Rover comes with a host of high-end amenities and safety features. Developed by former corporate owner BMW, it delivers smooth, strong acceleration; refinement; and a very comfortable ride, although handling isn't quite BMW-agile. Even though it uses unibody construction with a fully independent suspension, it remains good off-road. The seats are very comfortable, and the wood and leather interior is tasteful.

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.
