Tank. Goes Anyware. Safe Car — Great car. I'm am glad that there is aftermarket parts available because, OEM parts are expensive. It appears that Land Rover actually made parts to fail. Such as the OEM drive shafts. They had no grease fittings. After replacing two sets of drive shafts through Land Rover we bought an aftermarket set and installed for one quarter of the OEM price.

The interior is very clean and the exterior, price is slightly negotiable for serious buyer.

Cons

Needs tune up and little touch up as the back bumper has little dent.

The Car Is Very Clean And The Title Is Handy — I love everything about the Suv only that I need to change the truck to buy the Range Rover. Land Rovers products are mainly my tastes. I have used Range Rover before and this is my third land rover Discovery.

Dismal Reliability And Hence Running Costs (even With Full Lrsh) — Thought I had bought a beauty off my neibour (he is 70 and only goes to the golf course in it - full LRSH only 75k) have replaced engine loom, fuel pump, power steering pump air suspension bags and pipes, window lift sun roof, rear door lock now the other sun roof is leaking and spigot bearing in gear box gone. Delayed throttle shut off is causing great concern. Wheel bearing need replacing. It is draining me finiancially.

Great Vehicle. Can't Afford To Keep Her. — I love the look of the Land Rovers. It's a stylish vehicle, and it's roomy. The back seats lay completely flat so you can transport cargo. Double moon roofs. I got laid off from work, so i can't afford the gas prices anymore.

My Land Rover — the proformance of my land rover is that it has good acceleration, good braking, and that it is a little hard to manuver. the breaks squeak a little and there is a tear in the driver seat. it has leather interior and chrome wheels. gas guzzeler, pretty easy to maintain., very fun to drive.

Replace Motor/trans With A Ford Or Chevy 350 And Probaly Last 4 Ever — Gas hog, Repair's needed to often before factory warrentys up? Check engine light seems to be on nonstop only 43k on this SUV now? Depreciation is a huge factor in why not to purchase new if your looking for down the line if you can get past the check engine light issue, which while still under factory warrenty Ive shelled out over and above the cost of the vehilcle nearlly 3800 to get this thing to be drivable in hopes the engine light would go of but its still on!

Why drive a car when you can lob money at a Land Rover?

Cons

Too many to list!

Honestly The Best Tow Car Under 10 Grand But Look Out For When A Cheap Tourag V10 Comes My Way! — LandRover's 4.0 V8 on LPG is far better than the TD5 on both performance 182 bhp compared to 136bhp and mpg with the V8 returning around 30mpg overall. Our car is the work hack and spends her life pulling a big Ifor Williams car trailer around which these cars do with ease.

Pros

Robust, towing capacity, fun to drive, make you drive more relaxed

Cons

gas mileage, taxes,

Just Great — Performance: the car is not made for acceleration,nor handling. But if offroad performance is counted for, you can't get any better. Build Qual: very good. Appearence: Maybe not appealling to everybody, but I really like the looks outside and all the luxe inside. Gas mileage is the only downside...just getting under 10L/100km when driving 110km/u on moterways, otherwise you end up 12-13L/100km.

It Is A Wonderful Vehicle !!! — This is a great vehicle. The gas miliage could be better however, it is worth an extra trip to the gas station. I have a great time with it off road as well as in the city. It has plenty of room too.

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

I Love It, No Other Car Has The Charachter Of A Land Rover — offroad capability, electronic traction control, real low range, all time 4wd, excellent sound system, great interior. 12mpg is pretty rough, cost of ownership can be a hassle. had a part break and it was $3000 to repair, luckily it was covered by warranty
