1998 Land Rover Discovery LE 4dr SUV AWD


Everyone well knows that Land Rovers are expensive to own, maintain and operate. Given that, just be thorough in mechanical inspection of a used Rover. Also be prepared to put another 10-20% into your purchase of a used Land Rover (4yrs. or older). With depreciation a used Land Rover is still a much better deal than new (unless you can afford new) Towing ability is less than impressive but beach driving ability and highway is outstanding. Yes its a full-time four wheel drive so expect some stiffness and road noise. (It's not a Cadillac) But it is a Cadillac of mid-size/mid-price SUV's. If you appreciate the luxury and appeal of European vehicles like BMW or Mercedes you will like it.

Best Features

I love the high seating, leather appointments, lots of natural daylight, Great stock sound system, easy to use 4wd, comfortable ride on and offroad

Worst Features

Better factory engine seals. If a Land Rover is not leaking -it might be out of fluids (as the saying goes!). I got mine to stop leaking but only with the repair of 3 seals (Transfer case, head gasket and differential) More horsepower!! for towing. Perhaps a slightly longer wheelbase. Windshield angle
