Land Rover must dread the annual release of the J.D. Power quality survey. For the past decade, the luxury SUV brand has ranked near the bottom or dead last, as it did again this year. The survey found 228 problems per 100 Land Rover vehicles sold, much higher than the industry average of 166 problems per 100 vehicles.

Land Rover can take some small comfort in that fact that Tesla fared worse, with 250 problems per 100 vehicles. This year is the first time J.D. Power has included the electric car company, but it declined to officially rank it because Tesla wouldn’t provide registration data for some states, making an accurate survey impossible.
