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


I was looking for a great off road vehicle; this is not it. Despite regular maintenance, and no hesitation in replacing parts as the mechanic suggested it, this car still let me down. Blown head gasket, blown seal, exhaust leak, electrical problem, stuck window(s), and the little nickel and dime stuff here and there (wipers, filters, etc.) that all cost more than on a non-premium car. The car performed well when it was working, and could work trails like nothing I've ever driven, but enter into this understanding your obligation as an owner is to spend at least $3000-$4000 per year on problems; not just standard maintenance.

Best Features

Off-Roading is great; my brothers all laughed when I got it until I pulled their Z71's out of the mud.

Worst Features

Little things go wrong, but get the engine right. This is meant to be an off road vehicle, so don't expect good highway manners.
