1997 Land Rover Discovery SE 4.0 Rover from North America
For the money, it's hard to beat
A lot of little things went wrong, but the first 180,000 miles were without any problems.
At 180,000 the fuel pump went out in Estes Park in Colorado. That was $800.00.
At 220,000 miles the head gasket went... $1,400.00. That is the biggest problem I have had to date.
Normal tires replaced every 80,000 miles.
I replace the front brakes twice as often as the back brakes.
The air conditioning went out at about 200,000, and that was a $800.00 repair... but it works fine now.
All in all, it is my second most reliable car I ever had.
My most reliable car was a 1981 Camaro; I sold it after 20 years with 265,000 miles on it.
The Land Rover is a very comfortable vehicle; I have been in snow up to the door handles and never got stuck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
