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


This vehicle has proved itself to be
outstanding in battling our harsh
Canadian winters. The Permanent 4WD,
traction control, SLS, is by far the
best system we have had on any of our
prior 4WD vehicles. The vehicle is not
top heavy, and the ACE system is
amazing. Body roll is virtually non-
existent. The cabin is airy, and the
ergonomics are generally well placed
and easy to use. The driver seating
position and vision is excellent, and
the rear stadium seating is a nice
feature. Reliability has been
outstanding (Our LR has almost 75K and
hasn't skipped a beat). We like our
2000 Disco so much, I just bought a
second 2002 SEII for my wife.

Best Features

Value for money, The ACE System, Excellent handling, Solid build - built like a tank, Off-road capability...We use it on some very rough trails to access our cabin. It ploughs through 4 feet of snow effortlessly; spring mud doesn't phase it.

Worst Features

The V8 engine adequate for daily driving, but could use a boost in power. The Sport Mode makes a difference, but the already thirsty engine then seems to inhale fuel by the gallon. The ignition placement. I'd like to see satellite navigation or something like OnStar.
