Things to look for on a Discovery 3

Asked by Labaran Saidu Audu

I have just bought a used Landrover LR3 that has covered above 160,000 km. Could you please advise me about the status of the engine? Everything sounds fine, there are no abnormal noises from the engine, the air suspension works fine, there are no oil leaks, and the instruments are ok.

The LR3 was hailed as a major step forward in reliability, but there are one or two issues to be aware of. Fuel injectors clog and need regular cleaning, the steering tie-rod arms wear and can show play at around 60,000 or 80,000 km, and the front lower control arms bushings wear, ultimately requiring replacement.
