Nothin like a rover!

by on
Vehicle: 1996 Land Rover Discovery SD 4dr SUV AWD

i have had my rover for about a year now. and have subjected it to every kind of torture possible! lol its been through creeks, woods and snow deep enough that i was pulling out snow plows! but it has always been comfortable and reliable! it drinks gas like crazy, and could use some more get up and go. but i wouldnt trade it for anything! once u own a discovery u wont be without one!

Long term evaluation

by on
Vehicle: 1996 Land Rover Discovery SD 4dr SUV AWD

I've used this truck HARD supporting hundreds of Scout outings and she has never failed. She starts no matter how cold it gets and she's never stranded us or got unfixably stuck. At 95k miles she still drives like new and everything works great. She does ooze fluids but I can live with that. This is the truck I'll never get rid of... everything else has let me down or proved untrustworthy enough to not want to keep it. Buy a Rover and maintain it. Use it hard, periodically drive it like you stole it, and it will last nearly forever.

Spent almost $5000 on repairs in 2 yrs. 1st Transmission needed replace. Then ALL FOUR O-2 sensors. Later the plastic excuse for a U-joint came apart. This week, window regulator simply fell apart. Can you say "money pit"? The British should stick to making tea, not cars. When I complained to the LR service rep, he replied "Thats why I drive a GM"




This suv will bleed you

Don't buy one unless, of course, you can afford to pay for the constant repairs! It was a mechanical nightmare! Love the look and ride (when it is working properly)! It really is the best 4-wheel drive SUV on the road but it is not worth all the headaches! I ended up taking a $6K loss on it and leased a Honda Accord! I was losing my shirt along with my sanity!




I love my discovery

Great car. Although if you have to take them into the shop for work, it's going to hit hard on your pocket book. Other than that I love it. Great car.
