Much better than Disco I
By Mr. Patent on


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


The Disco II is a much improved product
over the Disco I with better build
quality, including a roomier and
quieter cabin. The DII handles and
rides quite well on the road, though
it is sprung fairly tight for offroad
use. The DII is a pretty wide (and
long) rig. When offroading, the width
of the rig can be a problem on narrower
two-track trails. Branches,rocks and
other debris that may miss a narrower
rig will snag your DII. Surprisingly,
some DII SD models are also not being
equipped with a trailer hitch receiver
as standard equipment--and it is a
fairly expensive option. If you camp
(or smoke) you'll also miss the
cigarette lighter--my SD came with a
dummy plug.

Best Features

A very nice set up balancing off-road characteristics with on-road characteristics. Distinctive styling. Can pre-pay at a discount for all scheduled maintenance.

Worst Features

Don't drop real offroad rig features like a trailer hitch. Don't make the rig any bigger--while the trend is for the urbanites to drive busses, the size of the rig is starting to detract from its offroad ease of use --and that is what Land Rovers are supposed to be about isn't it?
