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.
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.
