2002 Land Rover Discovery Series II SD 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 8cyl 4A)
I had always wanted a Land Rover (I am an outdoor wannabe!). I still would like a Defender. This truck is all I expected. It looks good and is made with typical British workmanship, put together well with parts that always seem to be a bit inferior. I used to have a Jaguar and it was the same. My only big complaint is that the brake and accelerator are too close together. I am now used to it, but anyone who uses the car fresh could be in dangerous territory. My wife let her mother drive it a short distance. She hit the brake and accelerator at the same time (with the same foot) and ran over a mini-van and a handicapped sign! Fortunately, no one was injured. I love it!
Ruggedness, 4 wheel drive, and looks.
Move brake pedal to left. Make console more user friendly. Move door lock switch to doors as it is very difficult to find in the dark. Move front windows to upper controls, rather than lower. It seems backwards.
