1997 Land Rover Discovery SE 4dr SUV AWD


We bought the vehicle from a dealer with an extended warranty. We were surprised on the number of problems we had with this vehicle. Nothing was made to last. We have had to replace numerous gaskets ($2,500), A/C problems ($900), electric problems with windows and other power components ($1,200). We have just sold the vehicle to a poor sap who didn't know any better. We could have bought a much nicer vehicle than what we got (considering the expensive repairs, original cost and maintenance costs). We would not recommend this vehicle to anyone. English engineers have a lot to learn from the Germans and Japanese.

Best Features

Vehicle appearace, design and overall layout interior.

Worst Features

Reliability is terrible. Very expensive to repair/maintain. For the price this is absolutelly unexceptable.
