1997 Land Rover Discovery SD 4dr SUV AWD

Review

The two year old vehicle seduced with it's rugged, masculine looks, it's promise of adventure in forbidding terrain, and elegant interior appointments that swaddels you in English country ambience. This perception faded quickly. I discovered she is a gold digging harlot, just out to drain my money reserves on repair, after repair. Through the years, a litany of complaints arose from her innermost mechanicals needing the corrective hands of the Land Rover mechanic to quiet her. $4K valve job, $1.5K oil seal, $600 brake cylinder, $600 fuel pump, among other woes. Will the pain never cease?????

Favorite Features

As stated before, the exclusivness, the interior style, and the rugged good looks.

Suggested Improvements

Design the mechancicals for reliability!!!!!! (Supposedly the "Series II" Discovery addressed the reliability issues)
