2003 Land Rover Discovery SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
Good approach and breakover angles, but poor departure angle will have you dragging your rear bumper on steep inclines. Very fun to drive, especially off-road. Reliability lives up to the Land Rover reputation, terrible. Several major and minor repair problems. Thanks to the extended warranty I have saved about $5,100 in total repair bills. It is now back at the dealership again with transmission and engine problems, total cost? Land Rovers are great if you literally have money to burn for gas and repair/upkeep costs.
Seating position/visibility, rugged live axles.
Build and mechanical quailty need to be vastly improved. Improved approach and departure angles are also needed.
