i researched and i i realized that the best year for the discovery was 2002, so i bought a 2002 with only 78.000 miles ( i paid ofcourse extra money for the low miles $ 9000.- for the truck.....) this was in 2011, after 4 months of using the truck and being actually happy, one day
a bunch off lights turned on! so i took it to the dealership ( and also my trusted mechanic), so here it goes!!!::: ito repair the truck the cost was $ 11.250.- YES, YOU READ WRITE , ELEVEN THOUSANDS DOLLARS AND SOME CHANGE!!!!!, to make the history short, i lost the truck ( i couldnt paid for the repair and i didnt passed inspecion ( ofcourse) and i also have a REPO ON MY CREDIT REPORT, so i m just trying to help

I bought it my 02 Disco in 2006 and have now owned it for almost 5 years. A lot of people complain about the repair and fuel costs on this car, and they can be high. To own one, you really have to know how to work on it, or have a very trustworthy mechanic. Luckily, I have both! The car is unbelievable off-road -- just last month, I towed a 6000 lb trailer filled with construction materials through a quarter mile of Mississippi mud... no problem. This thing is a tank and unlike any other car on the road. I have had a few repairs, but mostly normal things (window regs, radiator, coil packs) - still need to fix "3-Amigos" ... all in all, I don't care about the cost, this thing is the best!

This has to be the worst vehicle I have ever owned. I have owned possibly a hundred vehicles to include European spec Fords, VWs, BMWs, Nissans and American Toyotas, Vws, Mercedes, Fiat Chevy, Ford and all manner of GM products. The Fiat gave me fits in the German mountains where I was stationed back in the early eighties, the worst car ever until I bought this pile of garbage. I happen to be an ASE auto master tech and can fix anything. God I hate this disco II

I have owned My Disco for almost 5 years now, Have to say I still look forward to driving it every day. I have put this Rover to the test off road and it surpasses any other 4x4 I have owned. These vehicles are particular and one should know it before you own one. There are quirks that come with ALL Rovers. I have spent money on mine over the 5 years, nothing too major other than a $3k ABS module(most common)-3 Amigos. Land Rover now sells a repair kit for around $100. I have always maintained my Disco very extensively and expect to continue, they are great in the sense that you can have anything repaired on them. If considering, make sure to get 00-02 Models- more reliable. Still love it!

This was one of the nicest vehicles I have ever owned, but unfortunately, the maintenance is outrageous. After spending some serious cash fixing little things I returned to a North American truck. I miss it, but not the cost. Hopefully the LR3 will make up for the Disco.
