A Superb Suv Both On And Off Road - Interior Craftmanship Improvements Vs 2007 Model — The Discovery 3 / LR3 has amazing off-road capabilities without sacrificing on-road ride and handling. The air suspension provides unrivalled ground clearance and while on high ride mode this beast managed to wade anything I threw at during it last summer's UK flooding. The interior and exterior design successfully combine toughness with luxury. The interior craftmanship was significantly improved compared to 2007 model. The 7 seat folding and stowing possible combations makes this the most adaptable SUV interior I've seen.

Pros

Off road capability. I use it to go off roading with my buddies. I changed the tires to Nitto Terra Grappler and that is it. I owned a toyota FJ Cruiser before, but this thing is better.

Cons

Gas mileage

All Around Suv For The Family — Great all around SUV for the family! Dependability ranks high, provided you follow the maintenance schedule by land rover and you have it serviced in a land rover dealership. I guess the people complaining about this car had it serviced somewhere else.

See The Info Listed Below — This is my second land rover and i love the overall handling and strong v8 with the off road capability along with towing capacity.....It has served our family well with the additional third row seating along with the high storage area in the rear with the dissappearing seats. The adjustment buttons for the air suspension setting were placed in the wrong place just below the shift and we constanly hit it with stuff getting in or out. It had great many cup holders.

The Go Everywhere Vehicle With A Uniqueness To It. — This is a collectors item if you are a Land Rover fan. I was lucky to find one hardly used( 1.200km) at my dealership, when I had to take my previous LR3 back to Western Europe. I love the the tuff look and the equipment to go with it. The Tangerine Orange colour makes it almost unique (at least limited), and i can't wait for the light summer nights to be over to really check out if those lamps will light up the night...(it doesn't really get dark in Russia during summer).

Adventure As The English Define It. — I love my LR3. Its yet to let me down, and what it didnt have new I can always add as I go along. Including an iPod adapter from Land Rover thats good with the steering wheel and the center stereo counsel .. This, you can take it camping one weekend .. skiing the next.. its great for my dogs and has optional covers for the seats and rear cargo area to accommodate them .. I just can't say enough how much this is really the vehicle for all occasions, Next purchase is the Tent that attaches to the tail gate .. lol just all around classy good stuff, done the English way ..
