Rover Realist by Dohertys in Marshfield on 12/08/2004. Trim: 2002 Land Rover Discovery Series II SD, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Styling, durability, reliability, overall smooth operation. Great in inclement weather. Spacious for passengers and cargo. Fun to drive, in its own way. Major controls (radio, HVAC, power windows) logical and easy to operate.
Cons: Gas mileage (what else). Engine somewhat underpowered, but only noticeable when the auto transmission occasionally hunts for the right gear going uphill. Scheduled maintenance expensive.
Overall review: The complaints about this truck are amusing. If it's luxury you seek more than anything else, buy a Lexus or an X5. The Disco is what it appears to be: a real truck that was originally geared towards maximizing off-road ability. It has two live axles, an overhead valve V8 of ancient design, old-tech worm-and-roller steering and a short wheelbase. These vehicles are used as ambulances, military vehicles and fire trucks in other parts of the world. Credit LR's engineering for making the Disco competent in everyday use, but it will surely disappoint someone looking for total luxury. I have owned my Discovery for 2 1/2 years and have taken it off-road numerous times in addition to trips to the mall. It excels in both areas. Despite what some have written, I haven't had one reliability-related issue in the time I have owned it. It has been even more reliable than a Nissan Pathfinder I owned some years ago. If you are looking to buy, do so with confidence but understand what you are buying.
