"3RD time LR owner if you are planning on buying a Rover an advanced knowledge on the vehicle is needed and also where to find parts, They do need repair (just like any vehicle) but theres ways of doing it without getting hosed. I have had this vehicle for 5 years Drivin it on firebreaks of the NW, trails in TN and snow and ice, Never gotten stuck or disabled. Now for the Fuel economy 12/16 mpg at 90 or higher octane $$$ but worth it. Quirks I've found 1. gas cap seals wear out (causing check engine light to go on)2. if your 6'0 or taller I dont reccomend. 3. jump seats useless Ive used them once for children, small children."
"I've owned mine since November 2005. I purchased mine as certified used so I got the extended warranty. It payed off in the long run. I've had my transmission replaced twice and the ABS pump once. However, I would not trade this vehicle for any American made SUV. The 4X4 system is decades ahead of anything domestic. I've offroaded my Disco all over the Midwest. I'm proud to say that I'm not an average soccer-mom/grocery getter owner; I used my Landy for what it was made for. I've towed 6,000 lbs. for 1000 miles with no problems. If you want to think you're somebody, buy an Escalade and throw some 24's on it. If you want to really drive class and not be just another sheep, buy Land Rover. It's just that different!"
"Had our 03 SE for 2 years....my wife drives it and she likes well enough....repairs come often and are either hard to do yourself or very expensive....MPG is really bad....it is a good looking truck and people always think it cost more than it did....pretty much all options on other cars are standard here....overall I wouldnt buy another but have not hated owning this one"
"This car sold for 35k+ when it was brand new, and now can be had for around 10gs. Its a great value and a good workhorse for someone who wants to combine their work vehicle, with their private car. Its super comfortable, can tow almost anything and the heated seats are nice in the winter. The styling is fantastic and overall its just a joy to drive.
Repairs can be expensive, so don't buy this car unless you've got the income to support car repair bills that are at least double what you'd expect from a similar style Honda."
"I always wanted a Discovery, so I bought one. It is a very comfortable car, and you can see quite well out of it. The gas mileage is utterly terrible (12mpg), but I knew that upon purchasing it. I love the heated seats, heated windshield, and sound system, but the back seats are even hard for my children to get out of. I live in a small town, and going to a dealership isn't an option. It is difficult to find a mechanic (for those of us who cannot "turn a wrench") who will touch this vehicle. More over, it seems that this SUV is inclined to break at a moments notice. I do feel nice driving it, as it looks really awesome and few people own them. So, if you have the gas money, won't be getting into the back seat, and can either fix it yourself, or have the money to get it fixed by a reliable mechanic...I may suggest getting something more reliable and easier to work on."
