Pros

Very comfortable, excellent off-road, lots of room.

Cons

MPG, repair costs, bit of a history of recalls.

"the King's Off-road Toy" — I like the fact that the Discovery has a very advanced AWD and off-road system. I has very comfortable suspension and outstanding build quality. The visibility is great thanks to the large windshield and the many rear windows. You feel very "in-control" when driving this vehicle. My biggest complaint is the MPG. Its EPA ratings are 14CITY/17HWY/15-16COMBINED. But then again, I think I'm willing to make that sacrifice to be able to go off-road and avoid getting stuck in traffic. At least this way I know I won't be getting stuck at all.

Pros

Best stock off-road vehicle with no modifications, very reliable in bad weather conditions, rides high, great highway cruiser, not 'Huge' like other SUVs

Cons

Permanent 4WD is great for driving buts makes for poor gas mileage

The Total Package . . . It's A Land Rover! — The Series 1 Discovery maintains its roots to the original vehicles with the manual differential lock 4WD and few electronics. The ride is amazing for a vehicle which can do so much off-road. The double moon-roofs bring in a lot of light and the classic 'Alpine Windows' in the back provide that unique Land Rover feel. Do the scheduled maintenance and you may never need to buy another car; it is built to last a lifetime!

Average — the car is great for long trips, and very confortable, but has many flaws. its very rough, it breaks down all the time, fuel economy is horrible, its not a fun car to drive, and it alwasy needs some sort of repair.

After 6 Years I Still Love It ! — Great trail ride truck, good commuter and fair for the price. I have enjoined taking her around the country and she will always have a special place in my heart. Never regret buying it and hope to keep her in my garage for a long time.

Decent Suv, If You Can Afford The Gas. — Not a bad SUV. Needs 89 octane gas though... With the V8, all be it a small one, the mileage kinda sucks. For such a large looking SUV, the back seat is barely big enough for my 4 year old's car seat...

When You Are Behind The Wheel Of This Car You Cannot Complain — It takes alot of gas but it is a very stylish/attractive. It has another gear for Off Roading.. so its braking and handling is very good..This car is very fun to drive because you get alot flattering looks and alot of head nods...
