    Default Teach me about LR Range Rover Reliability

    Hey all,

    I'm in the market for a high end luxury SUV, and the Range Rover is one of the first cars that come to mind. I've been reading a lot of blogs and forum posts about the terrible reliability of these Land Rovers.

    I'd like those with some experience and years of LR ownership to chime in and give me some insight as to what these problems and unreliability are about.
    Little electrical glitches? Mechanical problems...minor or major?

    I have a Yukon Denali lease that is up the end of the month. I don't want to buy american again. I'm looking at the Range Rover, the Q7 and some of the larger luxury sedans, A8, S550 etc etc.

    Is it worth giving the range a look? Should I still go into the dealership and pick their brain about price and monthly lease rates?

    Thanks for all the help,
    Chris

    except reability the range is easily the best choice...

    the audi q7 looks like a hippo...the gl too big and too bad made cheap materials etc...

    hummer no way... cant accelarate cant corner cant brake cant be looked with pleasure...

    x5 is good but not as exclusive as a range....

    the sclass or audi a8 are very different to drive and live with... but good choices...

    from sedans take a look at the quattraporte

    I doubt you will get stranded with a Range Rover ever. They just have annoying little quirks that can be a headache.

    So nothing mechanical, but can you elaborate on these "little quirks"?

    Electronic gremlins, potential airbag issues (suspension air bags), etc.

    Like was stated above, most of these problems won't leave you stranded. These repairs, while minor, can be very costly out of pocket. Just make sure whatever you are looking at is under warranty and it isn't really a big deal.

    It's the best looking truck in the game hands down. Problems you might face can be anything from an annoying humming noise on the highway that can't be fixed no matter what you change from wipers, to grills, to tires lol (not like it's happening to mine or anything) to electrical problems, very often 1 or 2 of the cameras won't work. just little things that are annoying and cause you to go to the dealer but won't leave you stranded. Yet no matter how many little problems you have with it you can't help but love it. It's a great truck

    Not like it's a first generation Cayenne or Touareg where you really were stranded alot!
