FS: 2003 Discovery II
The vehicle is burgundy over tan leather with approximately 149k miles. The vehicle was purchased with the usual Land Rover Discovery apologies. The head gaskets leaked, the CHECK ENGINE light was on, as well as various brake and traction malfunction lights. What follows is a list of repairs that have been performed to bring this vehicle into excellent mechanical condition. The headgaskets, spark plugs, timing chain, crank gear, water pump, thermostat, auxiliary cooling fan, and various heater hoses were replaced. Additional engine repairs include new lifters, main and rod bearings. Two new tires were fitted. All wheel arch trim was replaced with new. A good used G4 style front bumper was installed. Multiple broken interior trim pieces were replaced. A repair was performed to eliminate the “three amigo” trouble lights, and the CHECK ENGINE light was taken care of with an oxygen sensor wiring harness repair. The car has also been thoroughly detailed in and out.
Cosmetics: The paint is in very good condition. There are the usual chips, scuffs, and dings that accompany a vehicle with this age and mileage but the paint is very deep and glossy. There is no clear coat failure or signs of previous paint work or collision damage. The interior is very tidy with no trim broken or missing. The leather front and rear is very nice, with a bit more noticeable wear on the driver’s seat (split seam, some creasing) as one would expect. The carpets are clean and do not show any excessive signs of wear. The headliner is the biggest detraction as there is some sag in areas of the back but it’s not terrible.
Functionality: Everything functions as it should with the exception of the driver’s seat heater. Windows, door locks, both sunroofs, heat, A/C, radio, and seat adjustments function perfectly. All gauges and interior lighting are functional.
Mechanics: The car is in terrific mechanical condition. All of the usual Discovery problems have been addressed. This car starts right up, runs strong, shifts, and brakes well. Most Land Rover Discoverys have a long list of excuses. Over $8400 has been recently invested in this truck to bring it up to top notch mechanical condition. You can hop in and drive this truck anywhere. You can certainly spend less buying a Discovery but you will be hard pressed to find one in better shape. Asking $6700.
