Land Rover Discovery (04-17)

Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
That I am a family man who likes a good car.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
My wife and kids love it. We had a 53 reg Discovery Series 2 (TD5 ES Premium Auto) before which we thought was good and then we got this which we all agree is even better. Friends all love it too, they're all constantly looking for an excuse to drive it!

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, because it is just so good to drive, look at (especially in 'Tonga Green' with 'Alpaca Cream Leather') and to live with.

What are you likely to buy next?
Land Rover Discovery 4.

Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchise

Did you buy this car new?
New

What price did you pay?
£44,000

When did you buy the car?
December 2006

Did you get a good deal and why?
Yes, I bought every possible extra and the price was still not too high.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Off roading abilities. Great family car for a family of seven living in the countryside.

What was the dealer like?
Roger Young Land Rover, Cornwall were brilliant.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Excellent, although the TDV6 can struggle occasionally with the heavy weight of the car at times (but that is not a good enough reason to buy the VERY thirsty and harmful V8 engine!).

What's it like to park?
Now that Land Rover has got rid of the spare wheel on the back visibility is much better. The parking sensors are brilliant too.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Just two diesel pumps. Land Rover very happy to help, with many calls afterwards checking that everything was OK.

What's most practical about your car?
The 7 full-size seats, off roading abilities and the massive towing strength.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
'Terrain Response' and Auto gearbox. Gearbox kicks up and down at just the right times and the manual part is just as good. DON'T BUY THE FULL MANUAL GEARBOX, THOUGH, THE AUTO'S A LOT BETTER, BELIEVE ME!
