    I can see your point on comparing a Freelander to a Honda. I was thinking more of the other Land Rovers.

    Still, when people do this they aren't wondering about the failure rate per part. They want to know the failure rate for the vehicle as a whole. If they buy a less complex vehicle, then they must not have needed the additional complexity. Those who actually need everything a Land Rover provides will be comparing it to other luxury brands.

    You say "bad rap" as if the results are undeserved. If a car requires many repairs, it deserves to have a reputation for requiring many repairs.

    You didn't simply say "other luxury brands." You said Lexus. I can only recall one instance where a Lexus model received a subpar reliability score, and it was the GS 300 AWD for a single model year. Not quite a "bad rap."

    Not saying you shouldn't love your Land Rover. But does loving something mean that it must not have any flaws, or at least have no perceived flaws? Opinions on this issue are split, even with my own household. :)

    We've updated the results for the LR2 to include owner experiences through the end of June. A big thank you to everyone who helped make this result possible.

    With a repair frequency of 51 repairs per 100 cars per year, the 2008 LR2 is about average. Much lower repair frequency than the 2005-2006 LR3 (no stat for newer years yet).

    These cars are of course young, and it remains to be seen how they'll fare as they age. With prompt quarterly updates, we'll track them closely. The more participants we have, the better the information we can provide.

    We've updated the results for the LR2 to include owner experiences through March 31, 2010.

    With a repair frequency of 59 repairs per 100 cars per year, the 2008 LR2 is about average. Much lower repair frequency than the 2005-2006 LR3 (no stat for newer years yet).

    Everyone who has been helping, thank you once again. We'll have further updates in August and November. With more participants, we could provide more precise results and cover all model years.

    We've updated the results for the LR2 to include owner experiences through June 30, 2010. Other sources of car reliability information won't cover the more recent months until the summer or even fall of next year.

    With a repair frequency of 75 repairs per 100 cars per year, the 2008 LR2 is about average. Much lower repair frequency than the 2005-2006 LR3 (no stat for newer years yet).

    We'll have further updates in November and February. With more participants, we could provide more precise results and cover all model years.
