1998 Land Rover Discovery LE 4dr SUV AWD
Here is a vehicle that is supposed to
be top of the class in reliability and
resale value but it's a dog! Trade in
values typically run $3-5K UNDER
wholesale! Maintenance is TERRIBLY
expensive. The 60K service of changing
all the oils, plugs and tightening of
parking brake runs $1100!! There
really is no maintenance being done
that Jiffy Lube couldn't do for under
$200. City driving yields 10MPG and
highway was all the way up to 13! Find
one you like and RUN AWAY!
Looks big! HUGE gas tank!
Interior is cramped both front and
back. Cupholders are terrible. Engine
is a dog! Cheapen up regular
maintenance! Make a better vehicle!
