2003 Land Rover Discovery S 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
My wife saw this Disco and had to have it and just like the music it didn't last. The real problems started last year when we replaced the power steering pump, then the head gasket went at 67k, then the throttle body heater. The car never went off-road and we had to replace the transfer case at 88k. So much for its legendary off-road capability. And Finally after all that we were told after a flashing service light, one of many, that the engine had failed and needed to be replaced at 93k. Six years old five years owned, bought with 8500 miles. P.O.S car. Never buy english V8s.
Build an engine that can make it to 100k. Not a lot to ask for.
