Much better than Disco I

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

Review

The Disco II is a much improved product over the Disco I with better build quality, including a roomier and quieter cabin. The DII handles and rides quite well on the road, though it is sprung fairly tight for offroad use. The DII is a pretty wide (and long) rig. When offroading, the width of the rig can be a problem on narrower two-track trails. Branches,rocks and other debris that may miss a narrower rig will snag your DII. Surprisingly, some DII SD models are also not being equipped with a trailer hitch receiver as standard equipment--and it is a fairly expensive option. If you camp (or smoke) you'll also miss the cigarette lighter--my SD came with a dummy plug.

Favorite Features

A very nice set up balancing off-road characteristics with on-road characteristics. Distinctive styling. Can pre-pay at a discount for all scheduled maintenance.

Suggested Improvements

Don't drop real offroad rig features like a trailer hitch. Don't make the rig any bigger--while the trend is for the urbanites to drive busses, the size of the rig is starting to detract from its offroad ease of use --and that is what Land Rovers are supposed to be about isn't it?
