Car History

Currently for sale is one of the 200 G4 edition Discoveries produced by Land Rover. This one was sold new in Massachusetts. This G4 is reported to be well maintained, with recent service history. It is being sold with a clean clear Texas title. The original window sticker indicating an MSRP of $40,495 and the G4 option package priced at $3500, cold climate package ($500) and dual electric sunroofs ($1500). Two keys and books also convey.

It was involved in a minor rear end accident in 2010 under the original owner, no other information is known except the CarFax and Autocheck both do not suggest airbags were deployed and the car does not appear to have been towed. Five weeks after the accident, it passed the MA safety and emissions inspection. In 2016 the vehicle was fully serviced through a pre-delivery/maintenance inspection with Land Rover of San Antonio, including fluids changes, ECU checks, and general recommended maintenance performed (approx. 12k miles ago).


You have by now undoubtedly noticed the color, known as Tangiers Orange (#761/EMC), it was a tribute color to the original G4 Challenge race trucks. This Discovery shows some nicks and bruises typical of a 13 year old car but above average if you adjust for it being a Land Rover.

The paint is believed to be all original and the seller has included an extensive image library showing paint meter readouts. All of the G4 decals are intact, and '06 G4 spec stickers adorn the door bottoms. A 2 inch suspension lift was added from original buy a prior owner.

The original bumper has been replaced with a winchable ARB painted bumper and black brush guard with dual spot lights. It shows its fair share of chips and nicks, though nothing appears bent or misaligned. Remember, you're buying a G4, not a CPO Honda Pilot.

Underneath, there are signs of surface rust and prior waxoyl treatment peeling. The seller indicates there is no rot or corrosion.


Inside the Discovery, the upholstery appears to be very good shape. We so immediate tears or flaws in the carpeting or seats. The passenger front seat shows a small spotting area in the seat bottom that can be seen in the picture. All of the leather and buttons appear to be intact. The rear seats appear to be in great shape. *A new headliner was recently fitted. Both sunroofs are said to work, and the drain lines were recently cleaned, and are said to not leak. The air conditioning was recently serviced. Heated seats work, as does the remote locking key fob. Seller reports a service light on indicating a secondary air injection error.


The engine was replaced at 75k miles with a brand new Rovers North block by a prior owner, and a full engine tune performed subsequent to that. In 2015, the prior owner replaced a front window regulator, replaced the valve cover gaskets, new spark plugs and wires were added, and the exhaust manifolds were replaced. The serpentine belt was also done.

Within the last year, service items include replacement of the water pump, fan and fan clutch. New brake rotors, pads, and calipers were added and fluid flushed 12k miles ago. Both differentials and transfer case fluid changed within the last 12 months. The oil has been regularly maintained.
