The first car I ever owned. I drove it everywhere, snow, mud, dirt and on road, it handled all of it with class. the maintance fees are steep buts its well worth it to have a reliable vechile that can do it all, I have every intention of buying from land rover again, before they were made by ford. After a roll over accident, it was tipped back over and driven home. Great vechile. I recommend being ready for some pricey maintance and sometimes insurance.

everybody loves this vehicle. If you own one and crawl in and around it you will find that no other road vehicle is built a heavy duty as a rover. Its heavy frame and drive components give it a low center of gravity. With regular lubrication and maintenance I think you can own one of these 20 years or more. I am 6'2" and have enough headroom to wear a stovepipe hat, but turning the wheel is a little heavy for a petite woman like my wife.
Riding a short 100-inch wheelbase, the new Discovery is still able to seat up to seven if the optional rear jump seats are ordered. A raised roof over the rear compartment and a boxy, upright body with tall windows make the Discovery unmistakably Land Rover. The workhorse 3.9-liter V8 of 1960s GM origins sends its 182 horses to the permanent 4WD system through a choice of either a manual or automatic gearbox. Dual airbags and antilock brakes are standard on the Discovery.
