2000 Land Rover Discovery Series II SUV 4dr SUV AWD


Review

I owned many SUVs including Land Cruiser, Montero, and Escelade but this is the best. It's the most stylish and most off road capable as well. After your long off road fun during the day you can still take it to the expensive restaurant. Very reliable if you maintain it and do some required services. Very easy to do stuff yourself on it. One offset is expensive parts and the fuel economy


Favorite Features

Active cornering enhancement, design, interior styling, off road capabilities, hill decent control, herman cardon sound system, 7 comfortable seats, rear seat entertainment


Suggested Improvements

Make it a bit longer, and imrove the manual by listing more DIY stuff

Review

This is all truck. The fit and finish of the plastic items both inside and out leave quite a bit to be desired. Many small parts and bumper cover cracks, internal fit and finish is below par for a vehicle of this class, though very comfotable seating and appointments, the creature comfort systems cannot be relied upon. Swithces, and molding are too easy to break. These negatives aside, it has been a mechanical workhorse, very reliable and can truly drive through anything. I would put my kids in it any day.


Favorite Features

4 wheel drive, seat comfort, and overall driving comfort. Power to spare.


Suggested Improvements

Fit and finish for molding and electronics.

Review

Bought it new and now have 7 years and 128K on it. Has been very solid and reliable, helped by following the maintenance schedule exactly. Best SUV out there. Replaced cylinder heads once (warranty) and head gaskets 80K later (no warranty). Sunroofs rattle. Gas mileage about 16.5 mpg since day one. Paint and interior still look new. It'll go more places than I'm willing to drive. Feels like it'll last forever.


Favorite Features

Good-looking, solid and reliable, go anywhere at any time.


Suggested Improvements

None

Review

We have had problems from day one. Car has never been off road. Car has never been in the snow. We have had major electrical problems ranging from seat motors, engine wiring harness, brakes and rotors after just 20,000 miles. Oxygen sensors, headers, etc., ignition switch failure. My wife drives the car around town. It's the most unreliable car I have ever driven or heard about. Gas Hog. Horrible ride on freeway. Scared to take it off road for fear it will fall apart more than it has. Engine is 1960's technology!


Favorite Features

Large, heavy, safe.


Suggested Improvements

Already done. Discontinued entire product and started over from scratch!

Review

My husband bought the Disc II for me--I never would have thought of buying a Land Rover. So glad he did! I've had it almost 7 years and have thought about a new vehicle but can't find anything I want to replace it with. Love the body style. Too bad the LR3 is so different! The first mechanical problem was just discovered--had to repalce a gasket. No other problems. Brakes lasted 60k miles. A real trooper.


Favorite Features

Body style.


Suggested Improvements

The mileage has always been consistent, 16/19. Not great at $3 per gallon. Stopped using premium 4 years ago, use regular. No problems. Premium was never required for that engine! Solved the cup holder problem with a dealer installed cup holder-$19. Rear leg room can be a problem.
