2002 Land Rover Discovery Review
Looks great, handles great, great off road
Erm, not much!
Fantastic All Rounder — What cars can drive the best B roads in Wales at speeds to rival a sports car, and then drive home along byways with warning signs saying 'unsuitable for motor vehicles'? Well, that's exactly what we did last week in our 2002 Discovery Adventurer LE. It's brick like shape does not look like it'll go round a corner well, but despite not having ACE, our Discovery with it's 18 inch alloys and air suspension means it handles amazingly. It's also pretty fast once the turbo kicks in, but up until then it's as slow as a tractor. Off road the Disco 2 will hold it's own against a Defender. It's got all the gadgets, hill descent, low gears, and air suspension. Most importantly though, it has a massive ground clearance compared to our Freelander which means it'll happily drive along deep ruts with ease. Inside it's very comfortable and the two sunroofs make the cabin feel light and airy. The boot is huge but the back seats feel slightly cramped. In my opinion the Discovery 2 is one of the best looking 4x4s, especially the later models with the facelift headlamps and updated front bumper.It certainly has more character than the latest Discovery 3! Nothing has gone wrong on our Disco yet, but we haven't had it long. From what I've heard though it is one of the most reliable Land Rovers, so fingers crossed.

Fun Vehicle To Have If You Go Off Roading, And Don't Mind Little Repairs Here And There.
Love it, It seems like I'm always fixing something, but I love it. It has decent acceleration, not breathtaking, towing is slow, handling is OK. I think it looks cooler then the Newer LR3, I think i... Read More
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 bu... Read More
Great If You Have Passion For Them
The D1s are great off road. Parts are easy to come by. Fuel economy is poor, but so are all true SUVs with gas engines. If you don't have a big daily commute and you do not demand Japanese reliabil... Read More
An Almost Perfect Vehicle
This vehicle has everything an off road vehicle should. Three locking differentials means it never gets stuck. It is lacking in build quality and often needs expensive foreign parts but the tradeo... Read More
Great For Off Road, Fuel Economy Could Be Better
Not built for hwy acceleration rather for torque for off road where is shines. All time AWD with lockable dif hi/lo for off road. Very smooth comfortable ride because of the leather interior and heate... Read More
