Happy overseas LR family
By 5nomads on


2000 Land Rover Discovery Series II 4dr SUV AWD


Needed a vehicle for any terrain--and
one serviced easily in Jordan where we
now live. DII great on both counts.
Driven lots off road; mileage/on road
handling not great. Rear seats OK for
kids, but can't haul ANYTHING with
rear seats down. Recommend a roof rack
if you travel with gear--like camping.
Interior space OK for family of 4, but
not adequate for the "modern" family
of 5. Anyway, our DII has done
everything we've asked and more; it
blends in well here, which is a plus.
Would purchase LR again--especially if
2005 design fixes some quirks, gives
more power/room, and maintains the
special aspects that make it so
durable/capable off-road.

Best Features

Off-road ability/durability. Handles lots of gear with roof rack. Roof gutters work great with roof rack. Good rear A/C. High seating, good forward/side visibility.

Worst Features

Mileage. Ergonomics. Rear doors narrow. Int. door handles inconvenient. Cargo space(w/7 seats). Front bumper limits approach angle. Put "air springs" all around (not just in rear) to improve clearance and off- road geometry. Sun roof small. Rear door heavy/difficult. Limited rear vis.
