This was taken from the Initial Quality Survey 2007
Landrover, Mercedes-Benz and Saab showed the most improvement since 2006. However, while Land Rover vehicles improved by 34 PP100, the brand still remains last with the most problems per 100 vehicles. Among non-premium brands, Kia saw the largest improvement in position, moving from 24th to 12th since 2006.
From the JD Power Survey
10 Land Rover Discovery
Overall ranking 70th=
Dreadful reliability was the main bugbear for the Discovery. Almost half had engine problems, and 71% suffered faults with the running gear.
Reliability apart, the Discovery was otherwise well liked.
11 Land Rover Freelander
Overall ranking 95th=
A poor eleventh place for the Freelander this year. Owners disliked its looks, engine, transmission and interior.
Interesting here the reference to Toyota.
Quote Land Rover owners reported 438 problems per 100 vehicles, while Saab owners reported 326. Owners of top-rated Toyota vehicles reported only 136.

Most unreliable car I have ever owned, I drove seven different courtesy cars in 9 months, Spent half my time back and forward to the main agent. The inside is well finished and the car looks well but never buy one that is not under manufacturers warranty unless you have a spare grand a month for repairs. Sold the car after 9 months and lost £30,000 but at least its gone New Audi tdi Q7 on order.
A grand a month for repairs did he say
I have found the reason Landies are heavy on fuel, they spill it out from 2006/07 fuel tanks
I was slated here last year about posting Landrover Faults which resulted in parked vehicles moving.

These vehicles can only be described as enthusasist vehicles, not reliable , formidable tow vehicles.
