I just purchased a 2003 discovery SE7

Asked by Nov 20, 2013 at 08:28 PM about the 2003 Land Rover Discovery SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I live in Murrieta Ca. I bought the SUV in Santa Barbra from a dealer. The car was
showroom and the seller assured me that it checked out 100% fine. About 5 miles of
returning home the head gasket blew. I took it to 2 Rover experts who both confirmed
this and told me it has happened many times with this year. They both quoted $5,000.
to replace the engine. That is close to what I paid for it. The car has just above 100k
miles but looks new. The dealer so far has shined me on. His quote was "YOU
BOUGHT IT" I was cool and he was simply a prick. My question is this,Has anyone out
there had this problem? Land Rover Corp also pretty much said screw you. Most
grateful for anyone to get back to me if they went through the same.
Regards,
Christopher

honestly Land Rovers are junk. I would have advised against buying one with that many miles, or one at all for that matter. Cut your losses and buy something reliable like a Honda or Toyota. Don't get it fixed it will give you nothing but problems.

So I assume you didn't get a even a 1000 mile warranty?
