2004 Land Rover Discovery SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
If you cannot afford a highline sport- utility vehicle do not buy one. This is NOT a KIA Sorrento, Suzuki, or a GEO Tracker. I have owned mine for 4 years and have had no problems even though I have well over 100k on it now. I regularly have the fluids changed and scheduled maintenance done. No it is not cheap. Do a True Cost of Ownership. If you live pay- check to pay-check you will not like the MPG. Again it's not Suzuki, KIA or GEO. I enjoy the vehicle and it is very comfortable. It is an all-weather, all-terrain SUV. Handling and torque is sufficient. You do not need to go 0-60 up a mountain in 4 seconds. Buy what you can afford , not what you want your friends to see you in.
The Land Rover Discovery has great ergonomics, utility, equipment and is well appointed. Dual sunroofs and safari windows are a nice touch.
