Boy did I get suckered
By Chris K on


1996 Land Rover Discovery SE 4dr SUV AWD


The worst car I’ve ever had. I’m amazed
at the rate of decline and the
deterioration of this car with 60k
miles that my salesman said “wouldn’t
be broken in until it has 100k miles.”
It’s been the most unreliable car. I’ve
seen the ‘check engine light two times,
the rear 02 filters failed and the
brakes went out among others things. I
told this to my salesman, Michael Kane,
but didn’t hear a word. Not what I
expected from a company that
stressed ‘an excellent level of
service.’ 3 years ago, my decision was
either a Discovery or a Passport. The
last 6 years, I’ve had 2 Hondas. Number
of trips to the mechanic: 0. Number of
mechanic trips for the Discovery, in
half the time:3.
