The changes from the discovery to the LR3 are not even comparable. Land Rover has done great things w/this new updated model. i've had it for almost 3 years & have zero problems w/it. It rides excellent & will dile you w/guilt if you don't take it off the road now & then. My wife had a Discovery & feel rest assured that you will have piece of mind w/this machine where as w/the discovery you just never knew.
Cold weather options (I live in AK) & the low temp doesn't even phase it. It heats up quickly & the advanced windshield defrost feature really works fast.
