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


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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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.

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


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.


Best Features

Sun/Moon roofs. Sound system. 4 wheel drive


Worst Features

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

Review

Gas mileage is horrible. You will likely average 19mpg highway which is a joke, I could have bought a Suburban. Plastic interior. Engine sounds like a diesel. I bought this thing based on its looks. After 4 months I traded this tank in for a more gas saving, well built vehicle. The sound system is horrible. The interior ergonomics are terrible.


Best Features

Exterior styling. Heated seats. Dual sunroofs.

Review

I love my Land Rover, nothing compares, not Chevy, Ford, BMW, this is a real luxury 4X4. it's solid, very comfortable, well built, powerful and can take turns like a sports car, absolutly no body roll around hard turns, try that with a Blazer or an Explorer. TRUE 4 wheel drive unlike the other wanabees.. Good luck getting this truck stuck! The only thing I don't like is the key position. It takes a while to get use to putting the key in so close to the dash. Other than that it's a winner.


Best Features

Leather Interior, Comfortable ride, power, safety, solid build, 7 passengers.


Worst Features

Move the key away from the dash, and put the window controls on the door.

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


Review

3rd eye tail light out after first 3 mos. Windshield washer pump didn't work from the beginning & has already been replaced with pump that works occasionally. Upper corners of front windshield leaked from beginning & has stained the headliner - now trying to get replaced. Also have problems with the front passenger compartment being soaked. Told it is a common occurrence with LRs so will need to get it drained (odd for it to be common on a $40k+ auto). Brake pads & rotors have already needed replacement and is costly (& not covered under warranty). Left front headlight has also gone out. Luckily, all these problems (minus brakes) are covered under 50k warranty


Worst Features

railings on outside of car need to drain water off better. Water spills right onto windshield when you brake, or water or snow will fall directly onto car seat when you open the door. Better mileage
