2020 Land Rover Defender First Impressions; CR’s Annual Auto Reliability Survey | Talking Cars #282

2020 Land Rover Defender First Impressions; Cr'S Annual Auto Reliability Survey | Talking Cars #282 1

Every year, Consumer Reports releases the results of its auto reliability survey, collecting data from hundreds of thousands of our members. We share the process of collecting this data, as well as some highlights from this year's results. The 2020 Land Rover Defender is a recent addition to our test program, and we share our first impressions on this resurrected and rugged luxury off-roader SUV. We also answer questions about NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness) shields on cars, possible solutions to end a burdensome car lease, and at what point a child can safely ride in a vehicle without a booster seat.

  1. From what I have seen, if you buy a Landrover, make sure you buy two identical ones. That way your neighbours won’t notice that one of them is always in the shop for repair.

  2. What I would like to see is the sample size for each car. This is what be thing that deters me from taking your conclusions. I have owned cars that had the worst rating by CR but I had zero issues with mine.
