2002 Land Rover Discovery Series II SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 8cyl 4A)
We've owned several cars both new and
used and have never wanted to return
one until now. The Discovery looks
great (that's why we bought it) but
drives terrible. The transmission is
extremely clunky, it feels like it's
going to fall to the ground. At 70mph
an annoying whistle takes over your
sanity. Dealer says "it's normal".
Normal for who? Never had that problem
with my Geo! It's very uncomfortable
and is hard to get in and out of,
especially in the back. Did I mention
all the annoying noises? Never again!
Only buy it if you're going to STAY
offroad. It's a substandard 40k
keep up with every other manufacturer.
Teach your service techs to deal with
the problems rather than excuse them
all with "it's normal because of blah
