Fun to drive.... to the service dept.
By Money Pit on


1997 Land Rover Discovery SE7 4dr SUV AWD


I've kept this truck for 3 years now,
thinking I've made my last repair for
a while. All this just between 35k &
75k miles.... Window lift ($425)
Radiator ($550) Seat adjuster
($200) Cup holder ($135) Major
oil & coolant leaks ($1200) Speed
sensor ($200) Blown valves ($2800)
Depreciation falls faster than the
Space Shuttle.

I really enjoyed driving the truck
when it was working, but reliability
is dismal at best.

I've been to several LR dealerships
service dept. with mine, and they
aren't sympathetic in the slightest.
Also, they are usually backed up
minimum of 2 weeks.

Best Features

Good looks.

Worst Features

Everything mechainical. Just start from the ground up. I just don't know how on Earth these things run in the wilderness and get home.
