2001 Land Rover Discovery SE 4.0 V8 from North America
The Best 4x4xFar
My head gaskets were on the verge of letting go.
Had a bad coolant leak from the water-pump.
Had a misfire with the engine.
ABS, TC, and HDC lights were illuminated.
In the year and a bit owning this Discovery Series II, I have nothing but good things to say about it.
I purchased it with 194,000km for a very fair price, and at 218,000km, I just got it back from a major service. My Landy has never let me down, and has never left me stranded, even while slowly dying due to poor compression, engine misfire, and coolant leaks.
I recently had the head gaskets done, heads machined, all new hoses, alternator, battery, CPS, ABS sensors, Oxygen sensors, spark plugs wires, ignition pack, water pump, and so much more all done in this one service. I'm very happy with the results, and I know my reliable Land Rover is even more reliable and it is something to be proud about when owning a vehicle such as this.
A big factor with owning a Rover, is definitely keeping up with the maintenance. If you don't you will for sure get bitten. However, if you love and enjoy the rig, and are willing, as well as have the funds, it is truly unstoppable. I drive a lot, off-road, travel and explore. I've always been around Rovers, even when growing up, and when you sit down and think about it, it really is a great vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
