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


I don't know what all the chatter about Rover's subpar reliability is all about. This is my second Discovery - my wife totalled the first at about 70 MPH (all passengers walked away) making replacement a simple choice. This has been an incredibly reliable vehicle, on road and off. Sure, some services (particularly brakes and tires) aren't cheap, but it is the most solid vehicle I have ever driven and I am willing to pay for quality. Not a squeak or rattle in over 70K fairly hard miles. Mine has survived Hurricanes Katrina & Rita in addition to several hard Colorado winters without a whimper. Fuel economy is suboptimal, I agree - as soon as Rover addresses that, I will gladly buy another.

Best Features

Build quality (this vehicle is solid), off road prowess, handling in snow and rain, reliability.

Worst Features

Stereo/speakers: should be better in a vehicle of this caliber. Used to be better before Ford bought from BMW.
