Run from this! Land Rover is the worst.
By Nitzervon on


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


There is not a seal on it that does not leak, in 90,000 miles: new motor (twice), transfer case (three times), both differentials, rear driveshaft, power steering pump, power steering box, hydraulic hoses, starter, replaced plug wires (twice, due to sparking between wires), Brakes only last 10,000 miles. I averaged $900 each month in just repair bills. Not to mention 8 miles per gallon. My wife has a Jaguar that is the same way. No wonder every car company in England has to be sold every few years.

Best Features

Off-Road is unstoppable, when it runs. I am scared to run it off-road now because I am not sure it will hold together long enough to get me back.

Worst Features

With today’s technology, you would think English engineers could make an engine gasket that would not leak, but apparently the English just aren’t that smart. Don’t change the vehicle just replace the workers on the assembly line and the engineers and then the vehicle will be much better.
