How reliable are Land Rover cars?

Every year, we run an annual car survey where tens of thousands of people tell us about their current car and how reliable it is. Based on feedback from current Land Rover owners, we have reliability data for new cars aged up to three years old, and also cars aged between three and eight years old.
