Consumer Reports is notoriously biased against Land Rover vehicles, even while they acknowledge their statistical sample size is too small to make solid conclusions. They, like many, cling to the cliche'd and anecdotal notion that Land Rover vehicles are unreliable and not recommended for purchase.
Well, JD Power has issued their 2017 Dependability survey, and in it, Land Rover is rated higher than Ford, Dodge, RAM, Jeep, Infinity, and Fiat. Vehicles rated must be 3 years old, so I believe that puts all current LR models within their latest generation, with the exception of the LR4/Defender.
Furthermore, JD Power calls out LR as one of the most improved brands, and have bracketed them in the "about average" category across the board.
This seems to be good news for people like me who are in the market for their first LR vehicle - personally, I'm between a RR Sport SE Td6 and a LR Discovery 5 HSE Td6, subsidized heavily by Volkswagen (thanks, Winterkorn, you jackass). I've lurked on several forums and focused on the L494 RRS sections, and it seems to me there are few reports of "big" problems like Jeep has - transmission failures, oil leaks, engine failures, suspension issues, and other things that keep the car in the shop for days. Those are very evident on the main Jeep forum. For the L494, mostly it seems like the usual buggy infotainment gripes or one-off problems that seem to get fixed and stay fixed.
In its category, the RRS scored higher than the Acura MDX (wow, Honda, how do you nail the Pilot and screw up its luxury stablemate??), Audi Q7, and the Infinity QX60. And that for a complete first-year redesign of the RRS in 2014, as compared to a mid-cycle car in the Q7 in particular.
