3 years with Discovery II, & all is well

ReviewI test drove this car in March in Chicago during a freezing rain shower. I couldn't make this car break loose. The traction was amazing. The car felt solid, very stable, had more storage room than my 4runner, and with the low center of gravity and the ACE option, seemed less likely to roll over. The aluminum body will not rust either (a big + for here in Chicago). The visibility is excellent. The braking ability is excellent. It's sort of slow with respect to accelleration but, if I wanted a fast car I would have bought a Mustang. Other that a loose connection in the fuse box that affected the fuel pump, the car has been perfect for 3 years and counting.
Best FeaturesThe cargo area is very tall so, many items can be hauled standing up. The electric windshield is great. No more scraping in the winter. Winters here are usually pretty terrible. The Disco gives you a driveability and safety advantage over other vehicles when it gets bad outside.
Worst FeaturesLarger rear door/seat openings. Lots of room once you get back there. Larger cup holders in front. The AC/heater LCD display is hard to see in direct sunlight. MPG is 15 Mpg city/hwy & about 18 MPG hwy. For a 4900 LB vehicle with a V8 & full time AWD, it's expected.
