Failure Date: 03/29/2011

Engine failure occurred at 63,000 miles. I was driving locally near my home when a popping sound came from the engine. It resulted in the engine light coming on and the engine shutting off at approx 30mph. The engine shut off led to a loss of power steering in the truck. Luckily, I was able to gain control of the steering manually and pull the truck to the side of the road. Fortunately, I was not on the highway when this happened otherwise it may have been a completely different outcome. The dealer (Land Rover of parsippany) examined the vehicle and determined that engine (complete engine failure) had to be replaced. A number of theories were thrown around : low oil (changed every 3,000), sleeves dropped (no clue what that means), or age (my favorite since it was 2004 and I used it purely to go to the train and on weekends) but no matter what the truck is totalled w/o an engine. My biggest concern at this point is that this issue is something that is known but not being communicated to other owners. Engine failure w/o power steering is simply troubling and scary at the same time. If you have a disco that is of the same age / mileage please bring it into your local dealer for a diagnostic service. To the NHTSA, please review this problem w/ Land Rover Discovery Ii to se if it is pervasive or it is just me.
