Wouldn't give this car to my worst enemy

1999 Land Rover Discovery Series II 4dr SUV AWD


This vehicle is all around unreliable. The Discovery I had broke down once a year, and I didn't even drive it that much. My vehicle had 71,000 miles on it. Usually you expect those kind of problems in a car that has more than 120,000 miles. The transmission went out twice, the water pump had a leak. The car would over heat even though I always watched the coolant.
The worst thing is that there's only one place around me that fixes land rovers! Any other place that I've tried talking to about it say they don't want to touch the thing. The car is way too expensive and difficult to fix. I'm so glad I traded this car in. Don't buy anything from Land Rover.

Best Features

Dual moon-roof is nice, 4-wheel drive.

Worst Features

Improve the whole build, engine, everything.

I purchased my disco 2 new in 1999. I have 143,000mi. It is an amazing vehicle as long as you service it properly. I plan to keep mine beyond 200,000mi.
