Land Rover doesn't care what you think?

I've had 3 Rovers, 2 were junk and the 3rd was on par with a really good Yugo that could go anywhere. Yet I'll more than likely buy another one in the future.

Here’s Why Land Rover Doesn’t Care About JD Power Ratings

Ditto. Yet, I'm surprised that I'm not surprised.

"if you are considering a used Range Rover, don't" LOL. And so true. There is one independent Rover shop in town and they thrive solely on keeping this over complicated modern crap alive.

I especially like the comment about the parking for roll backs. I'm a 2 bay shop in an old barn, and recently had 3 rollbacks lined up on little Old Hershey Road, waiting to back in and drop off another no start/deflated/hemorrhaging fluid Rover product.....
