"You won't find a better vehicle for a winter climate. The fuel mileage is as good as any other REAL SUV out there.
These things perform like BMW sports cars, and are incredibly powerful and they handle flawlessly. I can hold corners going faster in this than I can in my Monte Carlo.
This vehicle will transcend your soul while cruising at 45mph on a warm summer evening. The occupants of the vehicle will be lost looking out the huge windows and the dual sunroofs at the moon and stars.
These vehicles have poor reliability reputations because the just majority were sold on lease and were beaten up. Just do your homework and don't buy one unless it was well maintained.
I have a 2000 DII and a 2004 DII, each with 50k miles, and they both are perfect. They both look better than most 2009 model year vehicles, and people don't believe me when they see my white 2000 and I tell them the year. They assume it's off the showroom floor.
The body of these vehicles is aluminum and therefor cannot rust. The doors and the roof are metal and can rust, but keep them clean and they won't.
Be careful when buying a 2003. Oil pump issues are common in this model year.
When you buy one, make sure that the front drive shaft has inserts through which to grease the vehicle. If it doesn't, have someone install one that does, or install it your self. You will save a lot of money in the long run, because the shaft can break and damage the transmission if it stays un greased.
Be good to your discovery and it will be good to you.
Do not listen to people who say these cars break down all the time. My friend has a 1997 DI with 275k miles (same motor and transmission as a DII), and he's never had a major problem with it.
Buy a Discovery, and you will be immersing yourself into a realm of comfort and luxury you never knew possible in a vehicle. From it's heated leather seats and heated front windshield, to fog lights on the front and back, comfy steering wheel... these things relax you when you drive them.
This will be the best purchase you ever make. Just do your homework and don't buy something that has been beat up. These things are like a pretty lady. If you take good care of them and give them your heart, they will love you forever."

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 110,000
Pros: "Tough, reliable, and fun"
Cons: "Limited aftermarket parts, expensive fix, fuel"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8
"I purchased mine in Colorado and have drive across country with this tank on multiple occasions. Extremely tough truck. I've taken it through rivers, snow, mountains, mud, you name it and it lived up to it's name. Had some minor problems with electrical, but they're British and are know for bad electrical work. Keeping it for the long haul and will buy another Land Rover in the future."

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 117,681
Pros: "command seeting is the way to ride"
"This vehicle has served all purposes. With 2 children and two large labs we always got it done the Landrover discovery II series. The dealer was close and they were prompt and efficient when needed.
I love this car and feel lucky to have owned and operated it for over a decade as my full time vehicle. Still going strong at over 120,000 miles.. regular oil changes = gold performance.
Its only an 8 out of 10 because in 2001 they didn't have the technology they do today."
