1996 Land Rover Discovery SD 4.0 from North America

SRS light on
ABS light on
Rear window switches work intermittently.
Nice reliable truck. Runs strong and is very reliable, last 4 summers have drove it from Florida to Colorado, a 2000 mile trek each way. Never an issue, just put air in the tires, or air out of the tires (depending which way I was going), gas in the tank... which can be an issue.
For a "weak" 8 cylinder 4 liter engine it gets only 17 miles to gallon. I wish it had more power when driving up long hills. For the mileage I sometimes think I could get a true 5 liter engine with some bigger balls.
Interior is nice (leather) and sitting up high on the road is a plus. Seats could be better designed to be a little more comfortable... but I guess it is a truck. 3rd row seating has never been used, no kids, would rather have the storage. But a cool feature Looking to buy a new truck... maybe a 2001-2 Discovery?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
