Unique, Fun, Good working rig

2001 Land Rover Discovery Series II SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 8cyl 4A)
Bought new in 2001. Love the unique style and off-road is hands down unbeatable. I only have 59K but have been really lucky. Did some preventative maint. by replacing the engine gasket and a plastic pully with a metal one on recommendation of my mechanic. Only use synthetic and mid- grade 89 since new. The only item that was replaced to date under the warranty was the master brake cylinder. Otherwise running strong. This thing can tow a freakin house!
Love the unique look especially in today's world of suv look-alikes. The off-road is scary good - yes, you have to get off the pavement to find out. Love the up-high stance and dogs love the second sunroof for air.
Gas mileage stinks but hey, it's a heavy, safe, off-road truck get over it. I get 14 regardless of what I do. Stereo is downright silly - replace it. New HID bulbs in headlight helped a lot. Back door swings on wrong side to be helpful when parallel parked. It's true, the V8 is underpowered...
