2004 Land Rover Discovery S 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
This is NOT something you take Madison
to soccer practice in. This is a 4x4
yuppie tank, a posh off-road vehicle.
Imagine a Jeep built back when the
Military set certain requirements on the
base design (pre-Hummer era). As
expected, gas mileage is awful.
Downside: The "Ford Business Model"
shows. Hmmm...4x4 off road vehicle that
requires a $250 option in order to get
floormats? I wonder if the Land Rover
plant counts the squares on the toilet
paper rolls and unscrews half the
lightbulbs? Sounds like a corporate
executive or two need to retake
That being said, if that's the only
downside I can find, well, you be the judge.
4x4...all the time. V-8. SOLID. No
frame twist, locking center
differential, etc. Heck, its a tank,
and I love driving a tank.
As mentioned earlier: Floor mats would
be nice...moron marketing execs...
