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


Review

I love my Land Rover, nothing compares, not Chevy, Ford, BMW, this is a real luxury 4X4. it's solid, very comfortable, well built, powerful and can take turns like a sports car, absolutly no body roll around hard turns, try that with a Blazer or an Explorer. TRUE 4 wheel drive unlike the other wanabees.. Good luck getting this truck stuck! The only thing I don't like is the key position. It takes a while to get use to putting the key in so close to the dash. Other than that it's a winner.


Best Features

Leather Interior, Comfortable ride, power, safety, solid build, 7 passengers.


Worst Features

Move the key away from the dash, and put the window controls on the door.

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


Review

3rd eye tail light out after first 3 mos. Windshield washer pump didn't work from the beginning & has already been replaced with pump that works occasionally. Upper corners of front windshield leaked from beginning & has stained the headliner - now trying to get replaced. Also have problems with the front passenger compartment being soaked. Told it is a common occurrence with LRs so will need to get it drained (odd for it to be common on a $40k+ auto). Brake pads & rotors have already needed replacement and is costly (& not covered under warranty). Left front headlight has also gone out. Luckily, all these problems (minus brakes) are covered under 50k warranty


Worst Features

railings on outside of car need to drain water off better. Water spills right onto windshield when you brake, or water or snow will fall directly onto car seat when you open the door. Better mileage

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


Review

This was my wife's truck. We traded it in this last week because it's not comfortable for a 6'3" broad shouldered man, and because the local land rover dealership stated that it is normal for these trucks to need new rear brakes and rotors at 40,000 miles. It has a recurring issue of brake squeak which the dealer said they could fix for $250.00, but that it was not covered under warranty (5yr 50000 miles). It's had to have several oil leaks repaired (Oil pan, front differential) under warranty. I would not recommend this truck unless you buy it somewhere other than a Land Rover dealership, are small to medium build and are related to a Land Rover mechanic.


Best Features

Off road ability


Worst Features

Wider backed seats, ability to lower seat more or raise steering wheel higher so the steering wheel isn't sitting on you legs and better customer service at the dealership service department.

Review

I come have had 2 Porsches, 5 BMW's previous to the Disco. I have always admired its unique design, quite eclectic, old world British design that has refused to give into recent silly modern morphisms. The interior design is also very luxurious and utilitarian, dual sunroofs, bun warmers, powered everything.. I find the Disco sluggish, have to keep it in Sport Mode most of the time, which further impairs the already embarassing gas mileage. I have found Land Rover to be second rate as far as service (compared to BMW and Porsche), they do not extend "Range Rover" courtesy and customer service to Disco owners.


Best Features

Dual Sun Roof, quick heating (bun warmer and auto heat, seating for 7, unique British old world design.


Worst Features

Land Rover needs to extend customer service on the level of other luxury car makers, such as BMW/Porsche. I have had one major repair, and LR attempted to weasel out of the factory warranty, I would expect this from domestic car makers (Yes, Ford). I am contemplating selling on this issue alone.
