2003 Land Rover Discovery SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
After running my 03 Disco for 44k, my vote is mixed but leaning towards the not worth the price and could use lots of improvements side. Nothing big has gone wrong, but lots of little items have. Both front windows failed in a week. Gas door has broken twice, horn buttons snapped off, leaking windows, two oil leaks after service, brakes need changing almost yearly, spark plug wires went bust, cruise control is poor and punchy, and comfort level in rear is horrific, front poor. A/C vents just donít seem to hit driver in face, a must in Florida summers. On the other had, great looks, powerful, off-road works very well.
Body style, front lights and grill, back cargo, visibility from all seats, very good handling on all weather, great for off road, preppy name on the hood. Thatís about it.
Thank goodness the LR3 is on the market as they worked out most of the problems with the overrated, overpriced Disco.
