Tough trucks, but expensive to operate

2003 Land Rover Discovery S 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
I've had my '03 Disco for just over 6 years now. Bought it used w/ 10k miles. It is a very capable off-road vehicle and can even tough a 4000 pound boat with relative ease (braking is not so great). The truck has held up relatively well, but I have had a number of major problems including a blown manifold gasket ($800 repair), blown axle seals (warranty), 02 sensor ($800 repair), and the window motor ($200, installed myself). Alot of annoying minor problems have occurred also. The gas mileage really stinks (11-12 town, 13-15 hwy) for such a small vehicle. The car is not very comfortable, as you feel pretty crammed inside it. I would not buy another one.
Looks tough. Heavy duty drive train, capable off-road vehicle, powerful.
Better mpg. More room inside for such a gas guzzler. More comfortabel seating.
