"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"
"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."
"Best car ever! Your kids and all their garb plus groceries fit in this car. If your driveway is a ice covered hill, no problem. This car beats every other car off the block with a 0-60 thats unmatched in an suv. Change your mind and want that parking spot you just passed up, turning radius- UNBELIEVABLE! excellent stereo, air condition/heat, storage, comfort. Seats make your back feel better and somehow the front window is angled so you don't get sunburnt. sunroof even has uv screens. want it all plus the kitchen sink- GET THIS CAR!"
