Land Rover Discovery 300tdi Auto — Brill off road capability. Bit slow on the pull off due to being nearly 2T and on an auto diesel engine shes a bit hard to get going. But once she is - she's fine. Fuel wise - you can expect about 30mpg, so running on BioDiesel will reduce costs, and give approx 37mpg to full price (unless you make it yourself for 20p per lit)

Gas guzzler and always replacing parts.

True Off Roaders Vehicle! — Good looking car and comes with all the fully loaded bells and whistles such as twin power sun roofs and power everything as well as air conditioning in the rear etc but is not fo rth e average family person. Needs to be taken care of. Great vehicle in the snow and off road but be ready to put in some time and money in replacing parts.

Would Be So Awesome If Any Lr/rr Was Reliable — I love landrover and range rovers, they look great, have a premium feel, not your typical mall runner. but do tend to run to the maintenance shop way more than is acceptable for me!!! I think about buying another one ALL THE TIME but have to scare myself out of it

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
