1998 Land Rover Discovery 50th Anniversary 4dr SUV AWD


I feel like a fool! We should have
known when it took 15 days for the
dealer to deliver. We went back 3 times
for bubbling paint. During the first 90
days, it was in the shop for 67 days.
The transmission clunked, the check
engine light was continuosly on, the
cruise control broke twice, the muffler
system was replaced front to back
($5000 in parts), 3/4 oxygen sensors
went right after one another - I guess,
in summary, the vehicle was a lemon. We
regret our purchase and warn everyone
that we know to warn everyone that they
know. This should be your second (or
third) vehicle since it will spend more
time in the garage than on the road!

Best Features

Awesome off-road. Comfortable ride. Great headroom (except that you have to slouch to see traffic lights!?!)

Worst Features

Cup holder placement blocks climate controls, worst clock that I have ever seen (can't be seen in day or night), tiny rear view mirror, why is there only one signal indicator? Most important - less expensive / more reliable parts!!!!!
