An Interesting Car, but too many issues
By PghLR on
2001 Land Rover Discovery Series II SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 8cyl 4A)
I was drawn to purchase this vehicle for three reasons: the ability to drive in bad weather, the Land Rover cache, and the fact it was an SUV. Basically, I chose the Land Rover over other similar vehicles because I loved the Land Rover brand. However, I urge others not to make the same mistake and buy a used Land Rover. They truly are unreliable and very expense to replace parts. I have had mine in for service over six times in the last year. $4500 for a new transmission, $500 for new brakes, $200 for new windershield wiper control and the list goes on. Even though you might be tempted to buy this Land Rover for such a seemingly low cost, there is a reason for its huge depreciation.
