RANGE Rovers really are off-road vehicles — because they spend more time under repair than other motors.
New research suggests an eight-year-old Range Rover Sport, the model popular with footballers such as Luke Shaw and John Terry, is the least reliable car on the road.
And parent company Land Rover is the brand most likely to develop a fault. Volkswagen Polos come top for reliability.
Motoring experts Warrantywise analysed which makes are claimed against most and least under warranty, focusing on models between seven and ten years old.
The least reliable car was found to be a 2010 Range Rover Sport, with common faults including suspension, alternator, brakes and electrics.
Second was a 2008 Vauxhall Zafira and third a 2011 Vauxhall Insignia.
A 2009 Polo was the most reliable, followed by 2009’s Ford Fiesta and Ford Focus. Most unreliable brands were Land Rover, Jaguar and Volvo. Most reliable were Honda, Toyota and Skoda.
Lawrence Whittaker of Warrantywise said: “We’re not suggesting faults are guaranteed to occur, but this data is derived from genuine claims.”
