Edmunds' Expert Review

There are two reasons to buy this SUV: either you need incredible off-road capability or you need to show off to the neighbors. If you have different needs, you'll likely want to consider another SUV.

2004 Highlights

For 2004, the Discovery gets new tubular roof rails, and a manually lockable center differential is now standard. The S trim gets an in-dash CD player as standard equipment, and the HSE's cabin is enhanced with burled wood trim on the center console. A new interior color scheme -- called Tundra, featuring light earth tones in leather -- has been added. Finally, Land Rover is offering a limited-edition G4 model this year: It's painted an eye-catching orange, and boasts a cabin with unique trim and upholstery.

Will be buried penniless in this car
Mik, 3/9/2016
I bought my 2004 disco certified from Land Rover Parsippany almost 10 years ago. It is the vehicle that has brought my children home from the hospital and have loved it from day one. I first saw a disco at the Short Hills Mall and was in love. At 123K miles I have a 3 inch binder filled with all the receipts including: A new engine, head gasket, leaking everything, check engine lights and everything else. Yet, I love it - My family wants me to get rid of it but my comment is if your brother broke his leg would you get rid of him? It is a family member and ultimately it will be my downfall. Last year bought an Infiniti for my wife as she is done with the Disco. She still drives it in the winter - I put Blizzaks on her. Last thought, I serviced the car religiously and it still doesn't matter.
Love Hate Relationship

I just sold my 04 D2 and purchased a Toyota FJ with 1800 miles. My wife has been after me for three years to get a newer vehicle. My Disco has been my most favorite vehicle of all the 30plus I have owned. I am an avid ourdoorsman yet wear a suit and tie for a living. It has been in terrain most never think of going. I put a 2" lift with upsized more aggressive tires on it as well as a winch. It is one of the most capable vehicles offroad and a dream to drive on road. The hate part - at 67,000 mi the oil pump exploded. At 77,000 the rear main seal leaked like a fountian, the head gasket and a few other seals were leaking. Two door actuators, window crank and front hub went all before 100,000. I had a mechanic friend tear the engine down and put new seals in it throughout. When he went online looking for some information about Land Rovers he said he never saw such lengthy blogs about leaking oil issues like any other car he researched. I ran synthetic oil since 30,000 - changed the oil in the engine, trans, transfer case and diffs religiously. If not for the crappy quality of some parts and cheap engine seals this is an awesome vehicle. Land Rover has the reputation of oil leakers and garbage electronics. I bought it new so every mile was mine (110,000 when sold), and I am anal about maintenance but even good maintenance cannot help faulty materials. Once all the issues were fixed I had no more problems. I almost cried when I sold it as it has taken me to some great places. I also own a 1960 Land Rover Series 2. Purchase a another brand new one - never.
Style and Substance meet in the Disco
druidess, 8/20/2014
I am the original owner of my beloved 2004 Disco 2, which has logged more than 220,000 miles, many of them hard ones in Maine winters. I love this car so much that I put in a new motor at 180,000 miles, but sadly just learned that the undercarriage has rust. The plan was to get a new Jeep for me when my daughter got her driver's license, but she's getting the new Jeep and I am keeping my Disco for as long as we can keep the rust at bay. Although in very inclement weather she will be driving the Disco. Some time ago a massive Ford truck slammed into the side grate of my Disco destroying his whole front end, while Disco sustained a slight smudge. Looking for a replacement when this one goes.
Never sell my Land Rover! Just pay the repairs.
Ed, 9/1/2016
Yep. I'll never give up my 2004 HSE Land Rover. Yep it requires research and big $$$$ to keep it going. I bought my Land Rover used in 2008 for $15k with 75k miles on it. Dumped a ton of money into it in repairs i.e. ($12K, head gasket, suspension airbags, braking system, front drive shaft, tires, steering arm, etc.) and have at least another $2k on the list right now (replace valve lifters and door mechanism and right ABS sensor). Now it has 82k miles on it. So if you run the numbers I got 7k (82k - 75k) use out of it and had to spend $14 ($12 + $2) in repairs. You buy this car and you better be prepared emotionally and financially, because its probably going to get really ugly especially if you are buying this vehicle used unless you are buying it from an owner like me that just didn't mind staying on top of it and dumping tons of money into all the problems. In that case at least you'd have somewhat of a fighting chance of getting some miles out of it before you have to dump thousands into it. I am an older guy (54 years old) and I just wanted to own a Land Rover and I enjoy it and its just a toy for me and I anticipated difficulties but to be honest I did not think it could be as bad as it has been nonetheless I am jut at the age where I don't get myself worked up about it and just enjoy taking my family on road trips for with it. But my sister called me because my nephew (age 18) wanted a Land Rover for his first car. I said he has to read all the problems and join a forum for Land Rover owners and anticipate all the repairs before they happen and really get into owning a Land Rover and that she should put $15k into an account as a reserve fund for any repairs. Well that was the end of my nephew getting a Land Rover.
