This truck has been pretty good to me. It is in great mechanical shape and has no major issues. The only reason for the sale is that I am moving back to the east coast and don't want to make the drive again. This truck reliably gets me to the airport once or twice a month and around town every day. It has been well maintained and is in good shape to continue for another 100k miles. There is no appreciable rust or anything other than normal wear on the vehicle. The tires are in great condition with about 85% tread left. All maintenance items are done and up to date.
It has the good coil spring suspension, not the problematic air bags in the rear. It does not have any rust in the rear quarters, rear floor, or any of the other typical Discovery rust prone areas. Head gaskets were done at 130k so you won't need to deal with those for a long time. This is a 2004 so it has the coveted CDL and it works flawlessly as does low range. No sunroofs to leak.
It isn't perfect:
1) The rear wiper does not work (needs new wiper motor ($100).
2) The front door locks do not operate with the central locking button. You need to use the key or lock them by manually pushing down the lock button (needs new door lock actuators ($100/ea).
3) The rear windows are stuck in the up position. They will not roll down. I haven't looked into it but they probably need new window regulators ($60/ea). These issues have never bothered me enough to want to fix them.

Since buying Jaguar Land Rover, Indian automaker Tata has generally left its luxury arm's platforms and technology alone. However, those days might be gone. The two of them are gradually growing closer with coordinated development and rumors of shared platforms. And it looks like all of that work and money is finally going to pay off with an actual vehicle in the near future.

According to Australian website Drive, Tata wants to make its cars more attractive to buyers outside of India, and to do that the company knows it must improve quality. The Indian company is being careful, though, because it doesn't want to dilute the Jaguar or Land Rover brands with cheap models. "You're going to see in the future a lot of sharing of technologies and platforms over time, but you won't see a JLR with a Tata badge on it," said Darren Bowler, managing director of Tata's Australian distributor, to Drive.
According to Bowler, these future vehicles are already on the way. Tata and JLR have a global platform in the works for 2017 that both companies could use for cars or crossovers. He also hinted that Jaguar's new Ingenium engines could be shared among the brands in the future, too.
With most recalls seemingly affecting mass-market vehicles, it'd be all too easy to assume, consciously or otherwise, that higher-end automobiles never face such issues. But the main reason we don't see the NHTSA recalling more luxury automobiles isn't because of their quality, we'd postulate: it's because of their relative scarcity.

Take Jaguar Land Rover, recalls of whose vehicles we only seem to have cause to report about once a year. So if you're figuring they're about due, here you go. The Indian-owned British auto group has just announced two recalls, both regarding suspension components: one affecting Jaguars and another concerning - you guessed it - Land Rovers.
First up we have a recall for 2013 to 2014 model year Jaguar XJ, XF and XK models - a whopping 297 of them - which have been found to have problematic toe links. Separation of the toe link from the rear sub-frame could result in impaired stability and control over the vehicle's direction, so JLR is calling them in to replace the nuts and washers on the rear toe links.
Care for a bit more proof that the Jaguar Land Rover portfolio of vehicles is the best it's ever been? Well, the Indian-owned pair of brands saw a record year in 2013, while 2014 has seen a 14-percent increase in sales. The crazy thing is, though, is that figure could be even higher, provided the company had the production capacity.
JLR is running a six-month waiting list on two of its most popular models, the Range Rover Sport (above) and Range Rover. According to Mark White, the company's chief technologist for body engineering, the blame can be placed on the paint shop at the company's Solihull factory, in the UK.
"We will probably max out the paint shop before we max out the body shop. Putting the second body shop in has given us the flexibility to ebb and flow the different models that go through there and meet the capacity demands we've got," White told Automotive News. "However, you always hit a bottleneck somewhere. And the paint shop is probably going to be the next biggest obstacle."
