2002 Land Rover Discovery Series II SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 8cyl 4A)
I bought it my 02 Disco in 2006 and have now owned it for almost 5 years. A lot of people complain about the repair and fuel costs on this car, and they can be high. To own one, you really have to know how to work on it, or have a very trustworthy mechanic. Luckily, I have both! The car is unbelievable off-road -- just last month, I towed a 6000 lb trailer filled with construction materials through a quarter mile of Mississippi mud... no problem. This thing is a tank and unlike any other car on the road. I have had a few repairs, but mostly normal things (window regs, radiator, coil packs) - still need to fix "3-Amigos" ... all in all, I don't care about the cost, this thing is the best!
Off-road capability and tow capacity.
Where to start... these things definitely are not fuel friendly and certainly have some maintenance issues... but good things always come at a price!! ha
