Depreciation of Discovery
By D. Bailey on
2001 Land Rover Discovery Series II SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 8cyl 4A)
The Discovery was a purchase that I
thought over long and hard. The
vehicle was bought in March and I
traded it in July for a more fuel
efficient vehicle. Upon trading the
Discovery I learned that I had lost
over $7000.00 in the short time that I
had the Discovery. Overall the
Discovery is a good vehicle for someone
that is not concerned with the high
maintenance costs, terrible fuel
mileage, and finally a horrific low
trade-in or resale value.
The best feature that I liked about the
Discovery was the off-road capability.
A larger driver side area would be a
great improvement. I am 6' and 210lbs.
and on my Discovery I could not get the
seat back far enough to be
comfortable. The steering wheel could
be raised a little for larger
