Very expensive vehicle

Vehicle: 1997 Land Rover Discovery XD 4dr SUV AWD

Although we get many comments on the beauty of our car..has it been worth it? No power to the V8...high gas costs..very expensive maintenance..and no warranty that backs this car to my satisfaction....gorgous..but toooo expensive!
