Thanks for checking out our 2004 Land Rover Discovery SE7. While you are at this listing to check out the truck, let me introduce myself, because knowing who is selling a vehicle is often time as important as the car or truck itself.
My name is Kevin Helder, and I am the owner of Peoples Car Company Inc. based out of Grandville Michigan. Peoples Car (English translation of Volks Wagen) has been in business since 1999, focusing on European autos, primarily VW and Audi, but inclusive of Rover, BMW and Volvo. As a sole proprietor, I focus on quality, not quantity. For me, what I sell is a representation of myself.
I have chosen this business because I love cars and people, and immensely enjoy matching the right vehicle with the right person. That is another reason I focus on the quality, as I want every purchase to be a perfect match with a happy ending. You will find an accurate description of any vehicle I am selling, and you will notice that I have 100% positive feedback. I live by the "Golden Rule" for many reasons, one of which is I have gone to look at vehicles that are described inaccurately, only to find out when I get there that besides the year, make, model and VIN, the vehicle bears no resemblance to the owner's description. I refuse to do that, so you will find that imperfections are fully disclosed. That said, I am human, so there are times when I miss something, but that is the exception to the rule.
Enough about me...now let me tell you more about the Disco. I will give you a verbal walk around and plenty of photos (click on link to view: http://www.vuvox.com/collage/detail/068853c9ec), so you know exactly what to expect, should you be the proud owner of this truck:
EXTERIOR: The paint has an exceptional luster, there is no rust, and only a few cosmetic imperfections. They include a crack in the left front bumper corner, the front bumper slightly pushed up, door dings on the right rear door, a scratch on the left rear quarter, and a small crease in the rear door (all are photographed). There are also 2 scratches in the rear glass from the rear wiper. Finally, the wheel well moldings do show weathering.
INTERIOR: The leather seats (fronts are heated) are in excellent condition, including the rear jump seats (7 passenger). The truck was never smoked in, so it still smells great and there are no burns or cuts. The only imperfections inside include the headliner starting to sag in a couple of areas and the boot for the emergency brake is looking rather gnarly.
ELECTRICAL: Everything, and I mean everything, works and works as it should. All the lights work, the dual sunroofs work, all the power windows work, as do the power locks, heated seats and cruise control.
MECHANICAL: Zero issues whatsoever. No leaks, no peculiar noises, no repairs needed. The tires have 6/32's tread remaining with no uneven wear. The motor starts, idles and accelerates perfectly. The transmission (with only 30,000 miles on it) shifts flawlessly. The 4WD system works as it should, with new fluid in the transfer case and differential lock feature. Brakes have at least 50% of the pads remaining.

As a licensed Michigan dealer, unless your State specifies differently, I collect the sales tax from the buyer, as well as title transfer fee ($15). If you are a Michigan resident, I am also responsible for collecting the license plate fee ($8 for transfer or actual cost from the State for new plate). I do not charge a documentation fee! If you are not a Michigan resident, you are responsible for the cost to register and plate the vehicle in your state.
While this vehicle has been professionally inspected by licensed mechanics and given a clean bill of health, it is being sold as is, where is, with no warranties expressed or implied.
Buyer is responsible for paying for vehicle and any applicable fees. Buyer is also responsible for paying for and arranging shipping if necessary. If you are flying in to Grand Rapids International Airport, I will gladly pick you up at no charge.
Please ask any questions you may have. If you prefer to discuss the truck over the phone, you may contact me at 616-581-8815.
All the best as you bid to buy!
