Has RR reliability improved any?
I heard that they have been near the bottom in terms of quality for near a decade.
have things turned around since then?

I believe so. I don't personally have one but my father has had two in the last 7 years and NO problems other than regular maintenance. He racks up the miles too. I think they've changed for the better.

Range Rover has definitely improved the quality of its products. No car is perfect, but my family's 2008 RRS Supercharged is still in great shape. My M3 had more problems than our Rovers are having.'11 RRS Supercharged RSC600

83k miles (133xxxkm) on my '05 Rover. Just general maintenance for me as well. Nothing significant... yet (other than repairs from offroading).
I've heard that '07+ Rovers are super reliable (mechanically). Electrically, there still seems to be issues but I don't think anything significant in the majority of vehicles.

Yes. I had an '03, then an '05 (last year of the BMW engine), '07 SC, and now a '10 SC. I had a few issues with the '03, the '05 was slightly better (but the more complicated MOST system had occasional issues, and a battery drain). The '07 was nearly flawless, and the '10 has had very minimal issues (only thing was a wire harness for the camera system that they redesigned).

My '08 SC has been great for the most part... minus the fact that both the transfer-case and transmission were kaput! I just got the truck back from the shop...one of the internal bearings in the t-case was not rotating smoothly which resonated and over time completely stripped the teeth on the transmission input shaft! Long story short...with only 47,000 miles on the clock....my extended warranty covered installing remanufactured parts. Thankfully, Land Rover Assured sent me good quality professionally rebuilt products, unlike JUNK from LKQ (usually wrecked vehicles). I have had some horrible experience with LKQ in the past! All in all...I believe the warranty adjustor mentioned that he has been seeing more and more 2006+ L322's coming in for new tranny's and t-cases which is insane considering such low mileage. For the most part 2007+ L322's are fairly reliable.2008 Range Rover SC Westminster

I hear from owners they're not good for daily driving in the snow so if you're living in a northern state or anywhere in Canada basically, it's not a good buy. From what my friends/people I know who have/had them they usually spend a few thousand dollars every spring to replace parts and for a full tune up.
For the newer ones, 2011+, I have no feedback on those.http://www.youtube.com/mazzafiveonefour - My YouTube car channel

I own a 04 HSE with 90k miles and 07 HSE with 60k miles. No issues other then normal maintenance etc and I beat on my trucks. The 04 HSE is kept in PC Utah and it loves the snow but I had A/T tires put on both.
