2003 Land Rover Discovery SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
Don't let this vehicles awesome look bring you to purchase one. I bought a 2003 disco 4 months ago in pristine condition. Until after having it a weak the Lifters failed, the oil pump went and needed a total engine replacement at 58,000 miles. Local LR dealership put in a "used" engine in "good" shape and repair cost $8000. Two weeks after getting it back the head gasket blew on the replacement engine! Also a $3000 repair not covered by the warranty! I have never had a more terrible experience with a vehicle in my life. It's funny sitting in a million dollar showroom around all these high end vehicles,while they're telling you that these repairs are normal. I sold the car after 5 months
Exterior and Interior design, The vehicle quality and it's features are awsome, I truly loved it, hated it's reliability.
Pull the 4.6 V8 out and try and serve it for dinner, thats all it's good for. Stay away from 2003-04 disco's with this engine!
