2003 Land Rover Discovery SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Bought the car with 65,000 miles. It overheated on my cross country move at 67K (left me stranded with my family in Nebraska) and now there is irreparable damage done to the engine. I need a new engine which costs $12,000!!! WTF this is a total NIGHTMARE. Be careful Head gaskets go early and often. Land rover makes a horrible engine. I thought I was getting a unique car that would be a beast offroad, but it couldn't even handle on-road driving. I would not use this car to tow anything. It says there is a 7700 lb towing capacity but the weak engine shouldnt be forced to tow anything but the car itself.

Best Features

The piping on the seats is nice

Worst Features

Make a more reliable vehicle that doesn't completely fail and cost someone $12,000 at 67k miles
