Land Rover Discovery. I've had most of the common mechanical failures, altenator, water leaks, wiper failure, door/hinge problems, roof rust, floor rust, loads of electrical problems. Remember, I'm not a dealer or a mechanic, just an owner like most of you.

Experience in the area

Owner of a Discovery. I've had many mishaps with our Disco but I still like this vehicle. Talk to a fellow LR owner instead of a dealership rep. I'm not in this for the money. I'm just an owner who wants to help others.

What do you like about this subject?

Solving problems and helping other Land Rover owners save time & money.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Increase knowledge of Land Rover vehicles, replacement parts, create and maintain an alternative parts list.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Alternative parts are available; some dealers are fair and can be trusted. Haynes manuals can be used here in N.Amercia

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Don't judge LR mechanics just their dealerships.
