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


Purchased this vehicle as a demo model. Has been nothing but unreliable since day one. Yesterday I had to junk it because the engine failed totally! Beware of this year and model car. Look online for issues involving oil pump engine failures. The car was in the shop more than out -- sometimes months at a time -- power window failures, leakage, tailgate failure, numerous mechanical issues and basically a very rough riding car. Since this model year, I will pride Land Rover in coming out with the LR3 --I have heard a much better designed car. But don't buy a 2003 Discovery!

Best Features

Car pooling, enough room to haul kids and all their gear. Nice step up into third row from back. Great and fun in the snow. Safe car for wife and kids.

Worst Features

Gas mileage. Runs very rough, like a truck Reliability! Please!
