Land Rover Discovery (04-17)


3 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
That I drive through mud a lot, its plastered up the sides.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
No idea, havent asked them.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Never again. Am considering asking for a refund from the dealer as Ive been waiting for a fix on the suspension for >2 months now and they still cant give me a date when the part will be here.

What are you likely to buy next?
Not sure, I havent found a match for this in off roading, looks and interior space, poss a ranger rover sport, hoping I get a good one not a lemon this time.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It was beautiful initially, very smooth and great handling. Now the suspension is broken its not so nice.

What's it like to park?
Frankly its a bus. but I knew that when I bought it and since I drive a 7.5 tonne wagon in my spare time its no biggie for me.

Living with it

1 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Where to start? took it back after 2 days as the driver door didnt close properly. then after 2 weeks as the boot catch didnt open properly. 2 months in the suspension failed, still waiting for a part 2.5 months on, driving round in a 4x4 that cant off road. bluetooth has an intermittent fault, rear drivers side door sensor failed leading to kids almost falling out as door wasnt closed properly. Thank goodness for seatbelts. low fuel warning light works about 50% of the time. trim loose at the bottom of the passenger seat and wont clip into place, I could go on, but I've lost the will to live.

What's most practical about your car?

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Heated seats are lovely on my poor back (which aches because the suspension is broken and it drives like a penny farthing).
