Hi,

I’m in the process of understanding what I should be on the lookout for when purchasing a used disco. I had a series II about 20 years and maintained her well, I remember that being a key part in owning a rover. It’s been a while and I’m on the hunt.

I’m leaning towards a LR4, heard the LR3 had some issues. Hoping to spend 10-15k. I spoke to a mechanic today and he mentioned that low miles and terrible maintenance isn’t as good as higher miles and regular maintenance w/records. Most folks don’t keep records and especially if there’s been more than one owner. With all this being said, is finding this truck within my price range even realistic per mechanics advice? sounds like a unicorn.

Suggestions on good year? Is 10-15k reasonable to find a truck without dumping a ton of money into it? Any good websites to buy from owner? Any addition advice appreciated.

Thanks- T

You might find an LR3 in your price range in today's market, but it may be tough. Vehicles are selling at dumb money. I will say I think prices are on the downturn as the economy and fuel prices are hurting people. So deals may be had. I would start looking and test driving off of facebook market place. Finding service history unless you get lucky will be hard.
