Links Clearance

2011/12 Link Clearance

Leftovers and never posted items, posted now for my own reference.  I’m sure you’ve seen it all posted somewhere else before.  Which is why I never posted it, how many identical posts do we need saying how many awards the Evoque won, haha.

Quality Slips for All-New Models – New York Times had a specific call out to Land Rover:

Land Rover, a perennial bottom-dweller in quality surveys, was the most improved brand, though it rose to only 26th place on the list of 32 automakers.

The Range Rover Sport was also the most improved model, with 80 fewer problems per 100 vehicles.
