I loved it... I would say it was in the shop twice a year for something, but I loved it until it, quite literally burst into flames after getting stuck in a snow drift. Apparently there was a recall for the same symptoms but didnt apply to mine. Have to say that the lady at land rover was very polite and wished me a 'better day' but I am more than marginally concerned at the complete lack of concern shown by land rover.
I have 190k on my Disco2 and other than normal maintenance issues this vehicle is great. It is my daily driver at 60 miles/day. It does terrific in snow and ice from a driving perspective with the exception of stopping....This beast goes anywhere. For those of you that are mechanically inclined, once you get below the skin, you'll appreciate the "beefiness" of the materials used and the quality of the bolts/fasteners. It is built like a machine. Don't know why so many people dislike this vehicle, but mine is great.
It's a great off road vehicle with allot of power, expensive parts but if you are handy with tools it's ok. I replaced my head gaskets for about 220 plus 100 for the head rectifying. Replaced a leaking power steering pump gasket with regular gasket making cardboard, instead of buying the factory gasket and still hasn't leaked.
Bought this truck from my uncle's dealership in Oklahoma while living out west of Phoenix Arizona. Did environmental work on an abandoned gold mine and wanted a truck to hold all my gear and make the experience fun. The truck is a beast when it comes to repairs, but nothing can match the unique style and upgrade abilities of a Land Rover. I have suspension work, racks, tires, and a whole list of additional upgrades. "Stella" might be a pain sometimes, but she gets the job done when I need her to. I live in a cabin in the woods of North Texas now and couldn't imagine not having my Rover. I am welding a new bumper for her right now. I'll drive her till she dies, then throw in a diesel!
