2004 Land Rover Discovery SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


I had always admired Land Rovers and had saved enough money to buy a used '04 Discovery last summer for my new wife thinking it would be a safe, cool, and reliable vehicle for our family for many years to come. It only had 44,000 miles on it and the Coil pack went out:$750. Then needed new plugs and wires because they were damaged too:$300. At 48,000 miles the Cruise Control went out:$500. The downhill assist feature never worked, but I did not have an extra $1000 to fix that. Then at 55,000 miles the Oil pump went out:$2300. I had taken all the Land Rover hits I could handle, and traded it in. Land Rover should recall many features on this model due to an abundance of lemon-like problems.

Worst Features

The Service technician at the dealership informed me that the oil pump was not correctly engineered to align properly with the engine in 2004. Rover should stand behind its products and make this right. The only option they are giving owners now is a $2300 replacement that is sure to go bad as well.
