i bought my discovery just as it came off of a lease return. i've had many off road vehicles and have done my stint in the military and saw my share of off roading there! i'v been very impressed with the reliablity of this vehicle and will proabably always have a discovery or other landrover in my stable. i travel all aross Canada on business with my disco, as well as hooking up with some off road clubs. it is awesome on ice roads,deep snow and mud! it goes through all this and still looks awesome for business meetings. i now have 266301kms and counting with only regular tune ups,and tire replacements! SIMPLE AMAZING! BUT,if you own one, you HAVE TO do the regular maintenance!
great in the horrible Canadian winters (snow tires make it amazing!) very good reliablity(like i mentioned, dont neglect the regular schedualed maintenance) dual sun roofs are awesome for the family. strong under carraige components (larger swaybars,torque bars,etc.-than other suvs eg:Toyota FJ
gas milage isn't great, an extra gear in the tranny would help. offer the diesel version in north america!! (lucky UK )
