Learned my Lesson
By Stinky on


1997 Land Rover Discovery SE7 4dr SUV AWD


I've owned from 35K-82K miles and had
nothing but trouble. Repeatedly
replacing window regulators at $250 a
pop (replaced a few twice now). Head
gasket leak was repaired while under
warranty (40k mi.), just got $1500
quote to repair it again! Paid $600 to
replace failing PS pump (aftermarket--
dlr quoted $900). Chk engine light
came on at 50K miles and it failed
emissions. After 4 trips to dlr and
$300 it was fixed. Now chk eng light
is on again, after $430 and 2 days the
light is back on. Oil has leaked since
50K miles. In May dlr quoted $5500 in
necesary repairs. Want to sell it but
can't afford all the repairs to get in
selling condition.
