Built for Bad Weather, Not Comfort
By genec on
Vehicle2000 Land Rover Discovery Series II 4dr SUV AWD
ReviewGreat off-road and less so on-road, I
very much enjoyed owning and driving
the Discovery despite its flaws in
MPG, inconvenient interior amentities,
wimpy wiper mechanism, and
poor on-road performance. A funny
anomoly: the vehicle can plow
through 4 feet of water or snow (and I
did both!), but the wiper motor breaks
unless the windshield has been cleared
of all snow & ice!
Best FeaturesOff-road capability, exterior styling, driving height, heated front windshield, sound system, dual sunroofs, heat & AC kicked on fast, great in bad weather - if we got 2 feet of snow, I didn't shovel; I just backed out of my driveway!
Worst FeaturesAwful MPG, no usable cup holders, sluggish for a V8, back seat tough to get in/out, wiper motor needs replacing if used against even 1" of snow, change rear gate swing direction for markets who drive on the right, ie AWAY from curb), finding parking garages tough b/c of height
