Review

Great midsize vehicle-fun to drive,
nice to look at. Third row seats are a
snap to use and to pur away. Only
complaints are poor stereo sound
quality, poor placement of CD changer
(under passenger seat) and poor gas
milage. Plus, I think they could do
something a little different with
exterior design, but overall a fun and
stylish vehicle!


Best Features

Off-road capabilities, 2 sunroofs, interior design/style, drives smoothly.


Worst Features

New body style, better sound system, better CD changer location, better gas mileage, back doors need to swing open wider.

Review

I absolutely love my Land Rover. It
sounds like some folks have trouble
with theirs, but I have had none. I am
going on almost a year now with it. I
love the seating position, it drives
through anything (including 18 inches
of snow this last winter). There is
tons of room for anything you would
ever want to take with you. My Dad
bought a 4Runner at the same time I
bought the Discovery and is ready to
get rid of his car now that he has
driven mine. The dealership is great.
They are friendly, keep to their
appointments and finish on time. Just
budget for GAS!!! I spend about $200 a
month driving around town. It's a lot -
but well worth it to me.


Best Features

The seats, safari windows in the back, dual-sunroofs, compartments for everything, off-road capabilities and its abilities in any bad weather thrown in its direction. Not to mention - my Disco just looks GREAT!


Worst Features

Improved gas mileage, lay flat fold- down seats. When folded, the back seats take up a good piece of room.

Review

bought my disco2 in november and have
been thrilled with it every day. Never
have i had such a capable vehical.
This from a guy who owned a jeep
wrangler,bronco and f150 for the past
20 years. took it to the dunes of
Yuma,CA.in stock condition and went
where no other 4x4 could. Even
dunebuggies had difficulty and h2's
were left stranded in camp. winter
driving is profoundly better due to
the incredible traction control and
ABS that actually works. As a bonus
you can take it to a swanky restaurant
and feel as good about it as you would
a great sports car.


Best Features

The all wheel drive and engine is near perfect for off roading. super quiet interior even at 120mph you can't tell the difference.


Worst Features

running boards are a must and some better front end protection. I have not wrecked it yet but I know it would be costly if I had even the slightest fender bender.

Review

Bought my 2003 Disc.SE new and
experienced problems ever since.
Replaced electronic control units in
both sunroofs, fixed the driver's side
window and front sunroof as they were
stuck open, cigarette lighter and
heated seats stopped working after 2
months, and gas tank door fixed
several times-it refuses to stay
closed. Tail lights burn out
continuously, back door bolts rusted
since month 2 and bolts under hood
corroding. Vehicle is very loud.
Control panel layout is awkward at
best. After sale service was so bad
that I would never go back to that
dealership. Take a very long test
drive before purchasing this vehicle.
Can't wait to get rid of mine.


Best Features

Body style.


Worst Features

Gas mileage, control panel layout.
