Wouldn't give this car to

Vehicle: 1999 Land Rover Discovery Series II 4dr SUV AWD

This vehicle is all around unreliable. The Discovery I had broke down once a year, and I didn't even drive it that much. My vehicle had 71,000 miles on it. Usually you expect those kind of problems in a car that has more than 120,000 miles. The transmission went out twice, the water pump had a leak. The car would over heat even though I always watched the coolant. The worst thing is that there's only one place around me that fixes land rovers! Any other place that I've tried talking to about it say they don't want to touch the thing. The car is way too expensive and difficult to fix. I'm so glad I traded this car in. Don't buy anything from Land Rover.




Money pit series two

Bought new, worst vehicle I have owned as far as repairs. $20,000 in repairs in ten years. Radiators, hoses, front drive shaft, both axles, abs system repair, main seals, engine rebuild. Currently drivers side heated seat doesn't work, rear wiper broken, two doors locks not working. Too bad the body still looks new, should have sold years ago. Don't but one.

For real 4wd enthusiasts only

I am the third owner of a 1999 Discovery II. I knew exactly what to look for and what parts to replace, which I did. No issues from that day forward. If you are not willing to invest from the beginning in genuine LR parts, don't bother because cheap doesn't work. Take care of the vehicle and it will reward you with unlimited capability. To those who complain about reliability, perhaps you should have been proactive and not reactive. Avoid the ACE system at all costs, & get Waxoyl treatment.




Disappointing!

Vehicle: 1999 Land Rover Discovery Series II 4dr SUV AWD

I bought my Land Rover used and I have had a repair at least every two weeks. The water pump,mass air flow sensor, power steering pump, brakes (ok they were due for a change) all gaskets and the list goes on... I am disappointed that there is no CD player and the cup holders are small and are easily broken. The AC does not have a lot of power and does not cool the vehicle in high heat. I like the exterior very much but the vehicle can not be trusted.

Yeah, don't get an LR2. I had a 1999 Discovery II that had problems, and in good faith, "upgraded" to a 2004 Freelander because it "fixed" many of the problems associated with the ...
