The vehicle exhibits normal 16-year-old Land Rover Discovery behavior, such as leaking water into the main cabin (even after resealing the sunroofs), slightly leaking engine oil from the rear engine seal and momentary odd idle after a long highway drive. Because of the small engine oil leak onto the bellhousing, it makes a smell of oil after running on the highway outside the vehicle. The right side of the vehicle won’t unlock with the keyfob, and must be unlocked by physically pulling the door handles on that side from the inside. The Clarion head unit has died due to water dripping on it, but all the leads are there for another radio.

There is an EVAP obd2 code that says there is a small evap leak, even after a new gas filler cap, it comes on every third full tank and quarter full tank. I used a code reader to clear the codes after filling up and before going to the NYS inspection center and it passed twice with that method.

The body is overall in fine shape, though the clear coat has started to go on the roof. The paint could use a good clay bar (the photos were taken early in the morning and it looks as though the hood has oxidation; it doesn’t, it’s condensation). While the body panels are in good shape, the chassis exhibits typical, long-term Western New York rust. The rust has become severe to the point that working on bolts underneath is quite a chore, as most bolts are like graham cracker. The tires have limited tread and should be replaced. Both sunroofs have been sealed to mitigate water coming in, but that is common for this year of Discovery. The ACE system hasn't worked since I've owned it, and the rear suspension level light is on because I unplugged the air compressor in order to install the Terra Firma setup. The AC does not work and will not work again until the rear lines are terminated behind the driver side storage bins (the rear pump for passengers was removed to install the storage bins).

All in all, if you are used to working on Land Rovers, you understand all of the issues listed above are common issues. But, this vehicle still remains amazing to drive and gets about 20mpg on the highway. It was wonderful in the winter, and still starts up immediately. It has never overheated and still shifts strongly. The heat runs hot, and the heated seats still feel great on a cold day. The Terra Firma coil spring conversion has made the ride more lofty and reliable than the air springs. The vehicle has never not started under my ownership. Only 93-Octane Premium under my ownership.

While the vehicle is an SE7 trim, I removed the 3rd row seats in order to put storage bins back in to carry the fluids necessary when making long trips in a Land Rover of any kind! I will include the removed seats in this sale as well. The third row seats are in excellent condition. The front and second row seats are in fair condition (the rear being less used), and the cloth roof liner has been removed, stripped and then repainted to appear factory. Most cloth liners after 16 years droop and are ugly, and the with having been wet from the leaking sunroofs, had to be removed.

Even after writing about all of the vehicle’s defects, it still looks and performs wonderfully. If you need a great winter vehicle or want to swap the new parts listed above to another vehicle, I believe this disco is fairly priced and I am open to offers.

Just ask me any questions you’d like.
