2004 Land Rover Discovery SUV S 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
I am on my second Discovery ( the 1st was a 1996 Disco I). This one is #141 of the limited Camel's Cup G4 Series. The machine shows the influence of the BMW design team; it goes a lot faster, a lot quicker, but seems less stable in snow withstock tires. The addition of Nokian SUV tires improves the traction markedly. It was one of the few SUV's that I can put my portable clinic in, and still have room for the kids and their stuff. The fuel milage is worse this Disco (12.5MPG) vs 15MPG on the prior Disco, but it had a smaller (4.ol) engine. I would look at the LR3 next.
Style of the body and the seats. Really smooth 4WD system.
Global position system, better sound on all styles, seriously improve the gas milage.

It took some getting use to driving the
Land Rover after owning a MB for 5-6
years. The LR Discovery is a very
capable car, built reasonably well, have
a few good options/features but it is no
I am still glad that I made the
purchase. The LR Discovery performs
really well during the snowy NE winter,
which is the main reason why I purchase
the car. I have had a few quality
problems with my Discovery but the
dealer fixed them under the warranty as
expected. Some of the fixes took
multiple trips to the dealer before they
were fixed but the service dept didn't
make it any more painful than it has to
be. Thumbs up for the service dept!
Unique styling, if you could call it
Good performance in bad NE weather condition
