I have 190k on my Disco2 and other than normal maintenance issues this vehicle is great. It is my daily driver at 60 miles/day. It does terrific in snow and ice from a driving perspective with the exception of stopping....This beast goes anywhere.
For those of you that are mechanically inclined, once you get below the skin, you'll appreciate the "beefiness" of the materials used and the quality of the bolts/fasteners. It is built like a machine.
Don't know why so many people dislike this vehicle, but mine is great.

I bought this car mainly to go off-roading. Lifted it 3" and put some 33" tires. I could see why people don't like their Disco's. It only gives about 14 mpg, prone to overheating and needing new heads or motor, bad turning radius, and a rattle here and there. I would not buy this car to drive around town. LR3's and LR4's are a very different story. They have improved and are very reliable. Once the Disco is off-roading the truck seems to be in the place it was designed to be.
