Fantastic all round vehicle
By Macca on


1997 Land Rover Discovery SE7 4dr SUV AWD


I bought mine with 100,000 kilometers on it and intended to use it as a tow vehicle for my Caravan. After the first trip, I was disappointed with the lack of power from the 3.9 V8. I took the vehicle to a performance workshop and had a "Unichip" fitted. The transformation was amazing. This Disco now flys and returns a very respectable fuel mileage.

Best Features

Fantastic seats, great all round vision and very easy to get in and out of. The fact that most of it is mechanical and not electrical as the Series II Disco, is a big plus. Less to go wrong.

Worst Features

Go back to making the same solid axle Discoveries as this one. The newer Discos are too electrically complicated.
