2003 Land Rover Discovery SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
I would love to rate this car a 1 but honestly cannot. Purchased used with 50k in 2006 and sold in 2010 with about 90k. Routinely the car went in the shop from 2008 until I sold it and typically was $500-$2000 a time. The car constantly had issues with pumps, leaks, brakes, gaskets. The MPG too was horrid, at one point doing neighborhood/city only I averaged 9.8 MPG. Mechanical aside though I loved it. Loved the looks, the way you sat, the space, features, handling in snow and Land Rover knows how to make a car look cool. Would I ever own again? Probably not unless they overhaul how they build cars. My next car purchase I was focused on reliability and MPG and not just good looks.
Interior/Exterior styling, size of trunk, CD changer, heated seats, tons of room!
A better performing engine and overhaul of components and engineering used to make these cars run. There is no excuse for bad MPG and reliability in this day and age.
