London - They are leading examples of upmarket ‘Chelsea Tractors’. And with classy looks, refined road manners and strong off-road credentials it's not surprising that they're sought after.
Yet four models in the Range Rover and Land Rover stables are among the most unreliable cars in the UK, a survey claims.
What Car? polled more than 18 000 car owners, who rated 159 models between one and four years old, documenting any problems they experienced over the past 12 months.
A perfect reliability rating of 100 percent meant drivers reported no problems.
The poll found the Range Rover was the second least reliable, with a rating of 67 percent. Non-engine electrics were the most common issue in these vehicles and 17 percent had suspension problems. Nearly a third of the cars had to be taken off the road for more than a week.
