I read this article on Yahoo! today and while I find many of their articles to be somewhat ridiculous... including this one...I found it amusing, so I thought I would share.

 

https://www.yahoo.co...8645171772.html

 

My LR4 got a an 87% reliability score...  that doesn't seem so bad... especially after seeing that my previous car (Volvo C70) only had a 17% reliability score... even though I never had any issues with it.

 

The entire LR model spectrum report can be found HERE.

 

Enjoy!

In retrospect, the sample size for the LR4 is only 25, probably because most of them are not between 120,000 and 180,000 miles for the sample since they are so new.

"Chronic Reliability Issues"

 

I like how the sample size is 8... 100% reliability issues on each one... LOL!

Here's another entertaining article: https://www.yahoo.co...-222709616.html

 

"4. Land Rover Discovery (Expensive parts. Expensive powertrains. Electronics that are apparently the spawn of Beelzebub.)

 

2. Land Rover Freelander (A cost-cutting exercise that went way past the bone.)"

If the general public starts to believe the articles, then the prices of used LRs will drop dramatically and off roaders can pick them up at a bargain price. Law of supply and demand.

I hope JLR is able to counter that narrative. They've got some great innovation going on right now and I hope they're able to sell well.

That being said, I wish the Evoque, Disco Sport, etc were complete sales flops to chastise them for leaving their roots, but I digress.
