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.
104000 miles and going strong.
Absolutely no mechanical problems,
other than routine maintenance. Take
care of this workhouse and it will
never let you down. As the Land Rover
mechanics told me, this car
was "overbuilt". Buying new Subaru
Baja, but will keep the Disco for
4wd system, seating position/
visibility, reliability. Ease of
maintenance. Quirky instrument
placement is unique.
Needs front armrests, Move CD holder
from under front seat to in dash.
Improve gas mileage.
This car was the car that I learned to
drive in. With its great visibility due
to all the mirrors and dependable
steering, I can't imagine driving
anything else. After eight years,
repairs are getting pricey, but I find
that an acceptable trade-off when I
think of the times that certain
features have saved my life (especially
the small blind spots and excellent
The powerful engine, though it doesn't
accelerate quickly, has shown great
dependability. Its performance in bad
weather, especially heavy rain and
snow, is unbeatable.
Better gas mileage, put the gas tank on
the other side (people get really
ticked off at the gas station), and
there's something funny with the fuses
when we tow our sailboat that stalls
the entire car.
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.
dual sunroofs -= nothing else has them
Rear tail light bulb changes are a pain half the time i pay the dealer to do it.
