I am looking to buy a 95 discovery with 93k. The truck is in decent shape, with just minor ust in the door wells. The engine felt great on test drive, however the brake light was on, and the brake pedal needed to be pushed all the way to the floor in order to stop. I immediatly figured with the mileage being so close to 100k and the nature of the problem, that all corners would need new pads and rotors. I am assuming about 700 for the job total (as that is what the local service garage quoted me)
Any advice on picking this truck up for 3000, or 3500 ofthe seller takes care of the brakes. I will be using the discovery as a daily driver for about 6 months.

It sound like the brake master cylinder/booster is bad. Much more money than you are looking at. Too much money for that price of a truck. I would only offer them $2500.00 That truck would not pass inspection!!!!! :eek:

thanks for the tip, any way to figure out if it is the master cylinder? I planned on bringing the truck to a service center prior to buying, but if there is a way i could decifer without the hastle, it would be great

I would take it to an indepandant Land Rover Specialist. They will look at it and give you a true estimate!
