Fun to drive.... to the service dept.
By Money Pit on
1997 Land Rover Discovery SE7 4dr SUV AWD
I've kept this truck for 3 years now,
thinking I've made my last repair for
a while. All this just between 35k &
75k miles.... Window lift ($425)
Radiator ($550) Seat adjuster
($200) Cup holder ($135) Major
oil & coolant leaks ($1200) Speed
sensor ($200) Blown valves ($2800)
Depreciation falls faster than the
I really enjoyed driving the truck
when it was working, but reliability
is dismal at best.
I've been to several LR dealerships
service dept. with mine, and they
aren't sympathetic in the slightest.
Also, they are usually backed up
minimum of 2 weeks.
Everything mechainical. Just start
from the ground up. I just don't know
how on Earth these things run in the
wilderness and get home.
