Review

Went from a suburban to the discovery, love it for scooting about town. Bought it used and am scared of the 60,000 mile well-baby check up cost at the dealer. Otherwise love it and won't let my husband take it off- roading just yet, still my baby, but have no fear about it's 4x4ing capabiities.

2002 Land Rover Discovery Series II SUV SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

With our two year anniversary coming up soon, it was time for a review. Absolutely love the Disco, wouldn't trade it for anything else. Yes it has had some minor problems, AC hose, leaky T-case, U-joints, brake check engine lights and a stuck T-case. None too serious but the stuck t-case was a pain, but I was able to repair myself. Replacement parts are usually dealer only, which are heavy on the wallet but I'll survive. Mileage is approx. 14 mpg in the AZ heat with a 3' lift and 265/75 16's. Everyone talks about reliability, but almost all trucks are the same. They give back to you as much as you give them. Rover On

Review

I have always loved this car however I love it even more now that it saved my family. We were towing our travel trailer that blew a tire @ 65mph and rolled, causing the LR to roll (3x) as well and all of walked away!!! The state patrol said the LR was worth the money because any other car would have had severe to fatal injuries! When they sell the "steel frame" they mean it and we feel so blessed to have a fun but very SAFE car that saved our family!!


Best Features

Double sunroof, hill descent control, stereo, off road capabilites!!


Worst Features

Larger door to back seat. Larger mirrors. More horse power. However the new LR3 has all of these things :)

Review

A lifestyle car. Accept some strange issues in exchange for a very versatile and fun car to drive, and one that everyone has an opinion about. Stand out from the crowd and enjoy it!


Best Features

Style. Seating height. Stability.


Worst Features

Weight. Some build quality.

Review

The interior design is great for a
couple of adults (front seats) and a
couple of pre-teen kids (rear seat).
If you have to put a child seat in a
rear facing or reclined position in
the back, you have to move the front
passenger seat forward and any adult
will be VERY uncomfortable. If you
need to fold the rear seats to use the
vehicles cargo capacity, you will have
to move BOTH front seats forward.
Unless you are really tiny, you will
NOT fit in the driver's seat... so
much for "cargo capacity"
The service is the worst we
experienced (and we owned many
vehicles ranging fron economy to
luxury class). We service our's at
Land Rover Encino and thanks to them
we wish we didn't have this car


Best Features

Exterior style/look. Most reviews praise its off-road capabilities. Unfortunately we can't comment on this because ours never left the pavement


Worst Features

All existing inventory, designs and parts make should be at the bottom of the ocean. Re-train all service personnel at all Land Rover dealers. Rebuild the company with customer satisfaction and quality products in mind. Go back to the drawing board and create at least an avg car with avg quality
