I know in general Land Rover brand reliability is low. But I wanted to know specifically about 2016 Range Rover. Does this model also suffer from the same realiability issue that other year and models of LR do ?
It would be great to hear from actual owners or auto technicians who work on these. Do you take(see) the car in the shop so often ? and if you do then for what kind of issues ? Are they just pesky minor issues or major failures ?

You should ask this question on a RR specific forum for better quality answers.

Modern Rovers, say from 2011 or so, should be fine for the first 100k or so. I would not want to own an LR as a DD beyond that, but many do. Earlier ones can be problematic and even now, LR won't (can't) have Honda or Toyota reliability, but I would put them above our Jeeps and GM, but below BMW overall. This is from our and our family and friends' actual experience.

I have had three recent RR's since 2011; 2 RR Sports and my current and favorite so far is a '17 full size RR HSE turbodiesel. The two prior RR Sports had a few glitches in the initial 10k miles or so (inop steering wheels heater, blue screens), but were fine after. One needed a battery early on. The RR HSE has been great for the 44K so far, but did need a suspension air pump. None resulted in a stuck vehicle, all issues were handled under warranty and the loaners are always nice.

Talk to actual owners and give second hand rumors the appropriate weight. Find a reputable local independent LR mechanic for post warranty work. They are complex, premium vehicles so set your expectations accordingly, but our experience is positive. I'd recommend one.

Had this Disco years ago and didn't remember it having too many problems. But then, like in the video where the guy says his has a simple Ford engine, the Disco had a Buick.

I really like the 15-18 LR Discovery Sports. I’m also afraid to buy one as much as I like the idea of owning one.

Used with ~30k miles they can be bought in the $23-25k range.

Thanks for your comments. It still has some factory warranty left so thats good. Perhaps I could look into some exended warranty options ?
