Unbelievable! Mess

1999 Land Rover Discovery Series II 4dr SUV AWD


We purchased our DiscII right before Thanksgiving. I was so excited because we were getting what we thought was a great deal on a luxury truck. We bought the DiscII with 100k miles on it. We didn't think this was a problem because we have a 99 Pathfinder with 165k miles on it, and it has never been in the shop once! Three weeks after purchasing, (we didn't have the title yet!) while driving at around 25 mph, I heard a loud thud, I thought I had blown a tire. If only! The drivetrain and transmission somehow broke loose and busted through the transfer case. Gaping hole in bottom of truck, fluid everywhere, totaled truck! 8000k in damage. Will not buy another. Unreliable and disappointing.

Best Features

High seating, good view of the road. Distinct styling and design.

Worst Features

A 40K truck should be built to give you at least 150k miles without falling apart. Should never fall apart. Wouldn't recommend to my worst enemy.
