On my 2nd Disco
By Dr Ralph Krutulis on
2004 Land Rover Discovery S 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
I am on my second Discovery ( the 1st was a 1996 Disco I). This one is #141 of the limited Camel's Cup G4 Series. The machine shows the influence of the BMW design team; it goes a lot faster, a lot quicker, but seems less stable in snow withstock tires. The addition of Nokian SUV tires improves the traction markedly. It was one of the few SUV's that I can put my portable clinic in, and still have room for the kids and their stuff. The fuel milage is worse this Disco (12.5MPG) vs 15MPG on the prior Disco, but it had a smaller (4.ol) engine. I would look at the LR3 next.
Style of the body and the seats. Really smooth 4WD system.
Global position system, better sound on all styles, seriously improve the gas milage.
