The price of snobbery
By peterk on
2002 Land Rover Discovery Series II SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 8cyl 4A)
Guided by my wife, we chose to buy the
landrover over domestic or japanese
models. NEVER, NEVER again. Poor paint
on delivery kept the piece of junk in
the dealers hands for the first month.
When we finally got to test the vehicle
on a longer trip, ominous clunking
noises from the transmission kept us
from trying it out. Engine noise,
horrible performance and terrible gas
mileage are the price we are paying
for keeping up with the Jones. The most
disappointing thing in the whole
landrover ownership ordeal is the truly
horrendous way in which landrover
ignores clients who shell out $40,000.
I do hope it is not Ford who has set up
their client relations department.
Blowing up the Solihull factory where
it was made and condemning the
Landrover North America people to
driving their lemons until they retire.
