    Discovery 4 Re: Buying a Land Rover Discovery 4 V8 SE

    Yeah, didn't want to raise that but a D90 2.8i isn't the epitome of a technically advanced vehicle.

    And if your local workshop can't maintain THAT, then a D4 V8 will be many steps too far....

    I don't think the D90 2.8i was much better to be honest. Maybe closer to 5km/L in traffic, but still.

    Have you actually even asked about the WK2?

    And you could consider the 3.6 V6 that will kick most diesels backsides when it comes to large SUV fuel consumption.

    Dave, I suggest your colleague goes and slaps his mechanic and finds a proper one.

    He better have that ATF flushed and the filter replaced ASAP otherwise he's sitting with a R30k repair bill.
