Buyer Beware!

1998 Land Rover Discovery 50th Anniversary 4dr SUV AWD


I feel like a fool! We should have known when it took 15 days for the dealer to deliver. We went back 3 times for bubbling paint. During the first 90 days, it was in the shop for 67 days. The transmission clunked, the check engine light was continuosly on, the cruise control broke twice, the muffler system was replaced front to back ($5000 in parts), 3/4 oxygen sensors went right after one another - I guess, in summary, the vehicle was a lemon. We regret our purchase and warn everyone that we know to warn everyone that they know. This should be your second (or third) vehicle since it will spend more time in the garage than on the road!

Best Features

Awesome off-road. Comfortable ride. Great headroom (except that you have to slouch to see traffic lights!?!)

Worst Features

Cup holder placement blocks climate controls, worst clock that I have ever seen (can't be seen in day or night), tiny rear view mirror, why is there only one signal indicator? Most important - less expensive / more reliable parts!!!!!
