1996 Land Rover Discovery ES 2.5 turbo diesel
Dealers should be more committed in keeping users satisfied
Air Conditioner belt broken during vacations trip 1 month after purchased (73000 km)
Driver door glass machine broke down and had to be replaced (cost 200 US$)
Immobilizer set the vehicle off after driving 3 hours and remained so for 30 min before allow starting again. No reason found and never repeated.
On the last serviced made at dealer shop, was replaced the 02 pairs of brake pads for an outrageous cost (250 US$). Also has been unnecessarily replaced the outlet hose of turbo. The new hose presented defect few kilometers late causing the engine to choke during a trip.
The car handles quite good and it is very nice riding it because of the height. Engine is reliable in power delivery in a crowd road.
Seats and internal comfort is superb.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
