Land Rover offers a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty on the LR2. Though quality ratings are not yet in for the LR2, there is serious concern over the reliability record of the manufacturer, with more than one reviewer noting that Land Rover has frequently suffered from poor reliability test ratings. The says, "In the latest Consumer Reports report on reliability, Land Rover placed 35th out of 36 brands. Only Mercedes-Benz was lower."
Butwonders how "reliable" the reliability figures really are: "Finally, we get to the issue of reliability. It's a tricky one in this case because Land Rover's sales volumes are relatively low, making it difficult for some researchers to gather enough owner input for valid samples." And the , reflecting on the model that the LR2 replaces, observes that those "who had bad experiences with the Land Rover Freelander -- it suffered in some reliability studies -- will be glad to know that Land Rover has insisted that the LR2 is a complete do-over. The LR2 shares about zero with the old Freelander, Land Rover said."
