2001 Land Rover Discovery Series II SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 8cyl 4A)
I LOVE my Rover. I feel very safe and secure w/my toddler anywhere we go, what-ever the weather. I will never feel comfortable in a smaller car again. BUT when it comes time to pay the piper, I pay BIG. Brakes and tires are very costly. "Routine" maintenance will drop you to your knees ($800 for 65k checkup!). It's an expensive car, so expect to pay for it. You will pay an extra $100 a month if you average out your repairs and maintenance and $200 a month for gas. Get the extended warranty!! I dropped a drive shaft @ 70k.
Heated seats are a dream, plenty of storage, and I have actually used the compass!
GAS GAS GAS - brakes are pitiful- and what's the deal with those ABS/Traction lights?
