I absolutely love my Disco 2...in the way that an abused spouse loves their partner. It leaks water, the a/c stinks, sucks fuel like nothing I have ever seen, non-vital parts and sensors are constantly having to be fixed, replaced or reset, and now the plastic snap on bits are falling off (bumper covers and roof trim). All of this, and I never want to get rid of it! It will go absolutely anywhere and it looks great! You just have to know what is going on with the vehicle at all times, and get to know an honest L/R mechanic....and get a 'repair you Rover' savings account. Honestly, it has never not started or left me stranded. It's mostly the sensors that fail for me, not the parts.
Exterior styling. Off-road capability.
Fuel economy. Electronics. Build quality (supposedly addressed, but that doesn't really help me).
