2004 Land Rover Discovery SUV SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Use is as a daily driver here in New England. Exterior is beautiful and interior appointments are plush save for the electronics which were outdated even when new. It's more like a luxury all weather vehicle but still sturdy when you need it most. Always turns heads and you feel great driving it.


Favorite Features

Captain chairs and steering wheel are superbly comfortable.

2004 Land Rover Discovery SUV SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I will never buy another Land Rover product again. At 57,000 miles I had to have the engine replaced (past warranty but got it "comped" by the dealership, thankfully!). Now at 58,000 miles I have an O2 sensor that is out and an ABS problem AGAIN! The ABS problem has been looked at 3 other times. Additionally, it has had new brakes at 40,000 miles that now continually squeak. The fold out seats in the back continually squeak and the gas tank door has broken at least 5 times. Now the CD player is broken and we have had to replace the front left headlight (which seems to be a recurring problem with a lot of the reviews I have read. It will be someone else's problem after this weekend!


Favorite Features

The body style.


Suggested Improvements

I would invest heavily in design engineers to fix the glaring design and function issues of the Land Rover brand. Gas mileage is horrible and in today's world I don't see how that can be ignored by Land Rover.

Review

This is a horrible SUV to own. Stay away from it unless you are a wife who wants revenge on a cheating husband. There are plenty of better choices out there. Bad quality, uncomfortable interior, low gas mileage, sluggish starts from full stop and lots and lots of leaks!!


Favorite Features

Off-road capability.


Suggested Improvements

Get rid of Discovery or end in Tata's hands.

Review

After owning the Mercedes ML500. I thought it would be fun to drive the Land Rover. I have been very pleased with this SUV. The Mercedes does perform much better on road than the Land Rover.


Favorite Features

Great stereo. Leather seats. Visibility. Defrosting system. Cup holders. V8


Suggested Improvements

Move the interior door handles. More leg room. Redesign the windshield. Be prepared to replace it several times. Even grass blowing in the wind will crack the glass. Get the CD changer out from under the seat.

Review

This is my first Land Rover, and I love the way it drives and manuvers through traffic. The body style stands out proudly and demands respect. I am looking forward to taking it off road in the near future! Catch you on the trail.


Favorite Features

Sun/Moon roofs. Sound system. 4 wheel drive


Suggested Improvements

The arm rests are hard to access while seated. It can be difficult at times to exit the Rover with out your feet scuffing the door panels. An attatchment to hold fishing rods in the upright position. Can you bring back the 8 track player? Just throwing it out there
