1996 Land Rover Discovery SE7 4dr SUV AWD
I bought the truck with 50k miles. In
the past year I have replaced the
battery, plugs and wires, thermastat,
tires, fuel filter, air cleaner, brakes
and rotors, muffler, etc.
Truck is un-stopable in the snow. Gas
mileage is 12-13mpg. Acceleration is
slow. Engine is known for developing
valve problems. Frequent oil changes,
the use of high octane fuel, and fuel
additives minimize problem. Great
truck if you can perform your own
maintanence. Dealer prices are
ridiculous. Many suppliers for parts.
The dual sun roofs are a must. Try to
find one with all the "kit" you can,
I.E. brush guards, running boards, etc.
Wood grain interior makes a huge
difference. The rubber factory floor
mats are awesome. They hold a lot of
I wish it had a trip computer with
outside thermometer. Seats are
positioned too high, You have to stop
farther away from traffic lights to be
able to see them. I wish it had more
power and better fuel economy.
