The Land Rover Discovery: Quality Infrastructure in a Crumbling World

Posted 10/30/17

Whether the streets are just falling apart or you just need an SUV that can handle any winter Cincinnati can throw at you, the 2017 Land Rover Discovery delivers. That’s something our Land Rover mechanics just assume after years of owning and repairing them. But now a review out from the Detroit Free Press confirms it. The Land Rover Discovery offers plenty to conquer the world.

Their Logic?

As our fading infrastructure crumbles, the Land Rover has enough to just ride right over it. “Did your local freeway crumble? You can confidently drive over the rubble thanks to the Discovery’s 29.5-degree approach angle, 25.5-degree breakover angle and 28-degree departure angle,” the Detroit Free Press suggests. “Or use what’s called the All-Terrain Progress Control to maintain a succinct creeping speed over the debris.”

As far as offroad, trust in Land Rover: “With Land Rover’s Terrain Response system, you can adjust the Discovery’s driving mode to suit the road conditions, be it mud, ruts, sand, snow or incompetency. And it will do it without breaking a sweat. After all, this is a Land Rover.”

Sign us up. Our auto repair shop in Cincinnati loves Land Rovers. It’s good to know the company continues to invest in its reputation. As the Detroit Free Press puts it, “(A Land Rover is) one of the few pieces of infrastructure that’s properly maintained.”

How Often Do You Need Your Radiator Flushed?

Most car manufacturers recommend you flush your radiator every 40,000 to 65,000 miles. And it certainly doesn’t hurt to flush it before then since that helps clean the engine and prevent dirt and rust build up in the engine. It’s a good repair to keep up on because it helps maintain an efficient radiator and also helps prevent the vehicle from overheating. Basically, the original fluid is removed from the radiator and replaced with new coolant mixed 50-50 with water. The new mixture is then ran through the system, drained and replaced again. This serves to remove dirt and other contaminants from the system.
