    Lovee Ittttt — Over all 4 stars love this car, would get one again in the future. It's very roomy, kid safe, family friendly.. really is an over all good car, only it is pretty pricey parts when it comes to getting things repaired.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great car, lots of room for people and storage, lots of window space, roomy, very comfortable for long rides.

    Cons: Costly parts for repairs.

    A Commanding View Of The Road — Like the look and all weather capabilities. Dislike that its hard to find mechanics that will work on them! I found a great site on the internet, roverparts.com that saves you a bunch over buying OEM parts. You have to find a mechanic that has Landrover diagnostic equipment otherwise they are just guessing what's wrong. I really like Import Specialists in Springfield MO. The vehicle is solid and I have never felt safer in one, especially in adverse weather conditions. You find yourself going for the puddles in the road and the shortcuts across fields just because it calls to you to be offroad.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Offroad Prowess

    Cons: Gas Mileage, 14 hwy.

    "mad Dog" — The original paint is fantastic; handles even better than expected; I Love the capabilities of this vehicle! The "gas mileage" isn't really all that bad, considering that it is in "constant 4-wheel-drive" all the time. Acceleration is phenomenal! Cons: Am having to do a Lot of researching in order to be able to take advantage of everything this vehicle has to offer, but, that's also part of the fun!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Beautiful, and can go "most anywhere"!  Very tough ride!  Maneuvering is fantastic, with  Very stable, smooth handling!

    Cons: Not the "best" gas mileage, but not really that bad, considering its capabilities!

    This Is The Best Car I Have Ever Driven — Best car I have ever driven. No other car that one can drive will compare. Land Rovers' are special vehicles and are worth every penny. Just because it is big and tall doesn't mean that it can't take curves, it handles them like a champ.

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

    Pros: I like just about everything about this car

    Cons: Gas Mileage

    Will Go Any Place But Uses Gas To Get There — I purchased this car over a year ago with 118k on it and have put about 10k on it with only one repair needed, a new starter. It has served my house hold reliably. Over all for the price I paid I would say its been an excellent value. If you get one that's been well maintained and have a little extra money to pay for repairs/parts when things come up then this could be a good suv for you.

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

    Pros: 4x4 will go any place

    Cons: 12-14 mpg

    Great Truck, Low Miles & Kinda Suites Me... — I love my truck...it fits me perfectly! It isn't for everyone, I love the outdoors and so the off road capability is wonderful for me. It is spacious in the back seats and holds my system plus a months worth of food from costco in the rear/ trunk (if u will) I don't like how the clock has to have a special tool to change the time... also, the air/heat display is in celcius because i had to change the battery a few months ago and I don't know how to get it back to farenheit. The gas is a little steep for my wallet, but I don't do enough driving to warent that being an issue. It is very fun to drive!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: love the off road capability

    Cons: everytime you remove or change the battery, the temp guages switch back to celcius.

    Fun Ride But Pricey To Own — this truck is solid all around... in WNY winters it a MUST have. i previously owned a jeep wrangler, an amazing 4 wheel drive vehicle. switching i immeditly tested it out off road (purchased in December) i found myself towing dodges and fords out of snow drifts. as far as quality i have only had one problem which was a costly fix. this truck is a DOG, but sport mode does add a little pep.the interior and exterior are both good looking. gas is a bi issue for this if your thinking of owning one commit to 100-120 in gas weekly and expensive repairs if anything does go wrong .overall though i would not trade my truck for anyting else in its class (jeeps, explorers ect..) definitely a truck that gets you noticed and compliments..

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: great reaction when driving,awsome sound system, smooth ride

    Cons: expencive to fix minor issues

    Beautiful, Comfortable And Terribly Expensive — I love everything about this truck except that it is terribly terribly expensive to repair and it gets about 14 mpg. It's comfortable and very fun to drive. The interior is very attractive. Four wheel drive works very well and it can tow a trailer very comfortably.

    Pros: Beautiful, powerful, comfortable and fun

    Cons: expensive to fix and drive

    For The Price - Disco 03' & 04' Are Good Trucks — I've been Lucky, many friends have had LR and have been up a creek. When BMW took over LR in 2003 they put their 5 seriew motor in the 03' & 04' Disco. this was the last year that LR made the Disco in the US. the name and body changed to the LR3

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: super roomie...great kid & Dog rig

    Cons: The British for some reason can't keep screws tight
