2004 Land Rover Discovery SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I wanted to wait a full year and put some miles (18k) on this vehicle before rating it. I'd definitely buy the Rover again. Looked at the ML, Toureg, Cayenne, and Rover. The Porsche was excellent but priced itself out for me. The VW was a close second but was still $5K or so more than a similarly equipped Rover. Dealer service is fantastic and has a fleet of Disco loaners. We'll see what happens but it's all good now.


Best Features

Excellent highway cruiser for longer roadtrips (uh, except when you need to fillup), good stiff seats, nice stereo, excellent cargo capacity, and dual sunroofs. And I find the Disco visually appealing and structurally very solid.


Worst Features

Moot as the vehicle is no longer produced.

2004 Land Rover Discovery SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have taken this truck to the Holister offroad park, and this beast performed fantastically. I have enjoyed every day in this truck, and could never part with it. This thing gets down and dirty, and cleans up very nicely. Those who have never owned a Land Rover, will never quite understand the true charm of these modern day road warriors.


Best Features

Off road ability Dominating stance


Worst Features

More front seat legroom Better location for ignition

Review

I would not recommend this vehicle to anyone. I have had to take it to the dealer for servicing 8 times in less than 8 months. Six times to replace the serpentine belt and the other two times because the check engine light was on. Can you imagine what this piece of junk will require when it's a couple of years old?


Best Features

I like the color - it's the only thing I can recommend at this point.

Do you want toy, or a real SUV?

Review

This my first SUV. I've had a truck in the past, too big and combersome. I had a Mercedes sports car, too small and didn't do well in bad weather. I got spoiled with "luxury" items and didn't want to give it up. I wanted something that was "higher end" but could live up to being an SUV. I bought an 04' Disco and I got just what I wanted. Unlike other SUV's, you can take this one anywhere and not worry about "hurting it". As tough as it is on the outside, it still has luxury inside. The standard features on the Disco would all be options on any other SUV for the most part. So do you want something that is a real SUV, or an oversized car that claims to be one. Land Rover is the ticket


Best Features

Body styling, nothing like it. Doesn't look like anything else. Color options, again nothing like them. 18 inch standard wheels and a V8. Dual moon roofs and the cold climate package is awesome for those who deal with cold weather six months a year. You are very warm when it's 0 degrees outside


Worst Features

A little more off the line power. Add running boards to make it more accessable to shorter people and children. A little more leg room would be nice. Definitely put a little more space between the gas and the brake. Every once in awhile I might touch both of them.

roading, while handling good on road.
This is one cool car
