The Range Rover Sport is covered by a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty.

While not necessarily indicative of overall or long-term quality, a few reviewers note their quality observations. Cars.com says that "seams and gaps were all consistent and I didn't see any obvious fitment issues or loose covers." However, the Detroit Free Press notes some problems with their test vehicle: "First, the electronic parking brake engaged itself and would not release. I left the SUV sitting in my driveway for a few hours and when I started it again, the brake was no longer engaged, but the dashboard warned me of an 'engine fault,' and the V8's idle was rough and uneven. I enjoyed the Range Rover Sport when it was driveable, but its unreliability was shocking."
