Time to move on

1998 Land Rover Discovery 50th Anniversary 4dr SUV AWD


Was initially attracted to the LR
because of the styling...which is still
IMHO awesome. Went for the Silver
Anniversary model because of the add.
features. Everything was grand until I
hit 60K miles(just about the time the
warranty was running out, go figure).
In the last 3 months have replaced
among other things a door lock
actuater, transmission linkage, and a
blown head gasket. I can deal with the
small quirks(cup holders, brakes, road
noise,etc.)but the reliability
disappoints me. Sorry, LR...gotta move

Best Features

This truck just looks cool. Dealer has been awesome to deal with, I just wish I didnt have to see them as often. Off road, this truck goes anywhere.

Worst Features

Reliability....period. I know of no other vehicle that loses value as quickly as a Disco. If you buy...you better buy for life.
