Happy overseas LR family

Vehicle2000 Land Rover Discovery Series II 4dr SUV AWD
ReviewNeeded a vehicle for any terrain--and one serviced easily in Jordan where we now live. DII great on both counts. Driven lots off road; mileage/on road handling not great. Rear seats OK for kids, but can't haul ANYTHING with rear seats down. Recommend a roof rack if you travel with gear--like camping. Interior space OK for family of 4, but not adequate for the "modern" family of 5. Anyway, our DII has done everything we've asked and more; it blends in well here, which is a plus. Would purchase LR again--especially if 2005 design fixes some quirks, gives more power/room, and maintains the special aspects that make it so durable/capable off-road.
Best FeaturesOff-road ability/durability. Handles lots of gear with roof rack. Roof gutters work great with roof rack. Good rear A/C. High seating, good forward/side visibility.
Worst FeaturesMileage. Ergonomics. Rear doors narrow. Int. door handles inconvenient. Cargo space(w/7 seats). Front bumper limits approach angle. Put "air springs" all around (not just in rear) to improve clearance and off- road geometry. Sun roof small. Rear door heavy/difficult. Limited rear vis.
