2004 Land Rover Discovery SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
This is my third Disco and I am very pleased. Much better then the 2002 I had. Tighter turn radius and more power are the most notable pluses. Everyone likes to bash the fuel mileage - I just averaged 18 mpg on my last tank mixed city and highway. The trick is, don't drive it like a sports car (just take it easy use a light foot - it will coast on it's own momentum a lot of the time) and remember - it has a big 4.6L V8 and it is heavy ! As for reliability, learn what to look for in these vehicles and have the usual suspects addressed before you buy. 200k+ miles and I have never been stranded.

Don't continue to cheapen the brand with cheap plastics and thin metals and gizmos.
