1990 Land Rover Discovery Reviews
1990 Land Rover Discovery TDi 2.5TDi from UK and Ireland
A good all round 4x4 - the best by far!
It had a new head gasket at approx 80,000 miles.
I have put on the following:
A new front propshaft (82.50+vat)
New n/s swivel bearings (60 + vat)
New tyres all round (200 + vat)
It needs a bit of attention every now & then, but it is designed for off roading, rather than living it's life on tarmac!
The ride is comfortable, but not firm.
The engine is powerful, but noisy - improved with extra noise deadening material.
It is designed as a workhorse - but has creature comforts.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Head Gasket (at 90 k).
Stearing Gear worn (at 100 k).
Lay-shaft bearings worn (at 110 k).
Interior trim loose.
Expensive repairs, stupid dealership.
Poor workmanship but great concept.
Fun to drive, spectacular off-road.
Low, low fuel consumption (35 mpg when driving carefully).
