My Disco — well my land rover has good acceleration and handling for it's size, but it's braking isn't the best at times. for example when it's wet outside plan on it takeing forever to stop, dry is good for a 3 ton suv. as far as quality, it's a tank ... just normal wear and tear on mine i have replace a starter, oil presuer (spelling) sending unit, valve cover gaskets, and the altnater (spelling again). i have owned it for about 2 years. Finding parts can be a pain but autozone and o rillys can get some things. i love the interior it's HUGE the exterior you ether love it or hate it ... i hated it at frist but i like it now . oh ya my gas milegage sucks ... 15 - 16 i have gotten 18 once but its hard to keep my foot out of it. the disco's are fun to drive after you get used to the size, i went from a GMC jimmy to the land rover, the rover is a little bigger :) ... it's a blast now

Pros: room, it's different, it's not to fast

Cons: mpg

Seriously Top Car — Every conceivable extra. A truly versatile motorcar, will always get you there and back regardless of the conditions. Will tackle almost any terrain and will transport 7 people in relative comfort. If the need arises it converts into a very spacious load carrier and will tow anything up to three and a half tonnes.

Pros: Go anywhere in airconditioned comfort

Cons: None

I Wouldn't Drive Anything Else — Very comfortable front seats and the back's not bad either. Little small on cargo space but you can pile it up pretty high in the back to make up for the lack of horizontal space. Add a roof rack and you're all set. It leaks, rain and oil but its something I can deal with. Its slightly modded with a winch HD bumper and 2inch lift and a roof rack now. With moderate driving skill the truck will get you anywhere you need to go; if it doesn't then you probably shouldn't be there in the first place

Pros: Like the look and the awesome capability of the truck.

Cons: Takes time and effort to keep up with the maintenance and it can be tricky sometimes.

Pretty Sweet For Climbing Vertical Grades, And Stylish To Boot — We like it, it's kind of unusual, so that makes it more fun. It rides nice, the V8 packs decent power, and it will tow 7000 lbs. Not bad for it's size, The dual power sunroofs are awesome, and perfect for a nice day. The stock stereo is Alpine, so it sounds killer. Seats 7. Bring your friends.

Pros: looks tough. is. Also comfortable.

Cons: Nothing you wouldn't expect. 15 mpg, and usually have to find parts online, because it is rare. Now that Bett's has Land Rover though, it's probably a piece of cake.

Get One If You Can Find A Nice One! — Poor man's Range Rover, but worth owning one.

Pros: Safety, performance, durability, elegantly rugged

Cons: If you worry about gas, this is not the car for you, get a Civic!

I Miss Her! — Such a great car, lasted 10-years, probably longer if I couldn't care less how much it was to keep it on the road.

Pros: Gorgeous, could take it anywhere.

Cons: Gas Guzzler and breaks all 0-60 records of 25 seconds!

Lux or 1st edition model is the only way to go with this model. Wish it were a bit taller thus making it easier to get into. Other than that, great car. Read More
