Land Rovers Hold the Record on Warranty Claims

Back to Main Page
Posted On: Jul 8, 2017 By: Dave Bobeck Category: Land Rover News

According to UK news sources, warranty provider Warranty Direct looked at cars typically just out of their manufacturer's original warranty and revealed that Land Rover 4x4s had the highest number of authorized claims for vehicles of this age. Four-year-old Land Rover models have more warranty claims than those from any other company with the classic Defender accounting for nearly one in three of them.

The Defender model accounted for nearly a third of all Land Rover claims, closely followed by the Discovery (28 per cent), the Range Rover (26) and Freelander (16 per cent).

Perhaps unsurprisingly, axle and suspension problems accounted for more than one in five of all claims, slightly more than electrical, catalytic converter and emissions system and cooling.

Warranty Direct says that a higher mileage may be behind the axle problems. As for the electrics, it says that newer cars often come with more advanced electronics such as parking sensors, video cameras, and evolving computer technology. They may help improve performance and safety but can also fail more often as they become more complex.

Gearbox parts topped the list of the most expensive authorized claim post-manufacturer warranty, with an average of $1500 per claim due to labor costs, electronic complexity and many problems requiring expensive diagnostic equipment. This was closely followed by engines ($1200) and steering systems ($450.)

Simon Ackers, CEO of Warranty Direct, said: "Our latest information on the most common costs and claims for vehicles post-manufacturer warranty should offer valuable insight for consumers whose vehicles are approaching the four-year mark.

"Those who currently possess certain brands, which have displayed more issues or expensive repairs, would be wise to consider purchasing an extended warranty once their manufacturer's runs out."

Sage advice, especially for Land Rover owners.
