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.

Best Features

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 water.

Worst Features

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.
