2003 Land Rover Discovery SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
As the owner of a 2002 Freelander which I traded in for a 2003 Discovery I can tell everyone to take seriously the ratings given by both JD Power & Associates and Consumer Reports magazine (among others). JD Power & Associates reviewed 38 auto manufacturers and Land Rover placed right at the bottom for the reliability of all their vehicles. Consumer Reports magazine ranks Land Rover vehicles as "much worse than average" for reliability but also displays in graph form how much worse than average Land Rover vehicles actually are. When compared among 48 other midsize SUV's, the Range Rover, LR3 and Range Rover Sport all ranked between -129% to -195% in reliability (a score of zero is perfect
The reliability of Land Rover vehicles has been ranked the worst in the entire auto industry (JD Power & Associates and Consumer Reports magazine). Improving this seems like a top priority. Land Rover may also want to finally acknowledge this fact.
