2002 Land Rover Discovery Series II SUV SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

With our two year anniversary coming up soon, it was time for a review. Absolutely love the Disco, wouldn't trade it for anything else. Yes it has had some minor problems, AC hose, leaky T-case, U-joints, brake check engine lights and a stuck T-case. None too serious but the stuck t-case was a pain, but I was able to repair myself. Replacement parts are usually dealer only, which are heavy on the wallet but I'll survive. Mileage is approx. 14 mpg in the AZ heat with a 3' lift and 265/75 16's. Everyone talks about reliability, but almost all trucks are the same. They give back to you as much as you give them. Rover On

Review

I have always loved this car however I love it even more now that it saved my family. We were towing our travel trailer that blew a tire @ 65mph and rolled, causing the LR to roll (3x) as well and all of walked away!!! The state patrol said the LR was worth the money because any other car would have had severe to fatal injuries! When they sell the "steel frame" they mean it and we feel so blessed to have a fun but very SAFE car that saved our family!!


Favorite Features

Double sunroof, hill descent control, stereo, off road capabilites!!


Suggested Improvements

Larger door to back seat. Larger mirrors. More horse power. However the new LR3 has all of these things :)

A lifestyle car. Accept some strange issues in exchange for a very versatile and fun car to drive, and one that everyone has an opinion about. Stand out from the crowd and enjoy it!

Review

The interior design is great for a couple of adults (front seats) and a couple of pre-teen kids (rear seat). If you have to put a child seat in a rear facing or reclined position in the back, you have to move the front passenger seat forward and any adult will be VERY uncomfortable. If you need to fold the rear seats to use the vehicles cargo capacity, you will have to move BOTH front seats forward. Unless you are really tiny, you will NOT fit in the driver's seat... so much for "cargo capacity" The service is the worst we experienced (and we owned many vehicles ranging fron economy to luxury class). We service our's at Land Rover Encino and thanks to them we wish we didn't have this car


Favorite Features

Exterior style/look. Most reviews praise its off-road capabilities. Unfortunately we can't comment on this because ours never left the pavement


Suggested Improvements

All existing inventory, designs and parts make should be at the bottom of the ocean. Re-train all service personnel at all Land Rover dealers. Rebuild the company with customer satisfaction and quality products in mind. Go back to the drawing board and create at least an avg car with avg quality

Review

We test drove the Mercedes ML, BMW X5, Acura MDX and Lexus RX before driving the Disco. Once we test drove it, my wife wanted only that! Great car, excellent reliability and great off roading. Prior car was a Grand Cherokee Limited that was a nightmare. We made a huge step up without spending much more. Owned it now for 2 years and no problems at all. Just wish I could drive it more!


Favorite Features

Hill descent, styling,


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage. Dealership closed several months after we bought it.
