YES, I know it's an old thread, but:
Man, after reading all this crap, I'm ready to ditch the Disco and go back to Jeep. Except for the prestige (whatever that's worth) of owning a LR, why own one? The Jeep is AT LEAST as capable, far, far more reliable, way more powerful, simple to work on, gets better mileage and parts are readily available. And, it fits in my garage. So, I'm thinking it might be time to move on...or back. If I have to baby this thing to make it last, why is it considered a tough off-road vehicle? Are we all dumb asses for defending them? Beginning to think so. Or maybe I just don't get it. I want a vehicle I can drive every day and go anywhere in it. Why can't I do that in an expensive vehicle like this? What are we paying for?
Okay, let 'er fly. Don't tase me, bro. Just being honest.
