1999 Land Rover Discovery Series II 4dr SUV AWD


My 1999 Land Rover Discovery II became undriveable in July of 2004 due to a premature failure of the transfer case. The failure came shortly after the end of the warranty and with only around 54,000 miles on it. Ford/Landrover called this \"normal wear and tear\" on the most critical driveline component in a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Letters were sent to various Ford (fix or repair daily) and Land Rover executives with no result other than a vague phone call from an admininstrator from Landrover promising to see if they could help if there were further failures but reemphasizing that this failure at such low mileage was normal and to be expected.
