Land rover lover

Vehicle: 1997 Land Rover Discovery LSE 4dr SUV AWD

Fun to drive, very responsive on and off the road. Very well built, will go just about anywhere within reason. It's a blast. I am a hunter and it will outperform most stock 4 wheel drives vehicles off road. I have not had any problems with this vehicle on or off road. I would recomend it to anyone wanting a good all around on and off road vehicle. Love my Land Rover

If you just have to get a Land Rover then this is probably the one to get, but expect to have problems with parts, and expect them to kill the wallet. I have had the entire brake system redone to the tune of $1300 and I still need a sensor in one of the brakes which is a tiddy $250. Most Land Rover Machanics are out for the money and know you will pay it. The Disco is though, and a very rugged car, but keeping it running is the killer.
