ConsHeavy in town, fuel consumption, minor niggles

My Land Rover Discovery 2.5 TD5 GS is the 5-seat model, first registered in December 1999. It was bought in June 2000 for £20,000, having cost approximately £27,500 new. It had nearly 5000 miles on the clock. Bodywork was and is immaculate and the previous owner (a rural chemist) buys a new one...

I had Disco 2 TD5 for a year and a half now and am very pleased with it. It's just as capable off-road as a Defender, but much more comfortable and will get you there in style. Reliability is generally not a problem - unless you count broken front differential, amongst other things, but mine is a...

“Land rover Discovery TD5”

published 26/12/2000

Pro4 wheel drive with lowering prices

ConsA little soft on cornering

If you have the money to spare and are looking for a car that has Looks - Style - Comfort - Reliability and a real name that's had a good following over the years, I would highly recommend the Land rover Discovery. The biggest asset at the moment is that the price throughout the range has been...

ProExceptional towing vehicle, comfortable & reliable

ConsQuite sluggish

I have owned many large, spacious and comfortable vehicles; both 4x4s and cars (Mitsibishi Shoguns, Mercedes...). However, now on my second Discovery (a '52 Reg' TD5 GS) I can safely say that the Land Rover has blitzed the others. It offers a unique blend of ruggedness and comfort without...

Consvery unreliable

Having owned a land rover for about two years now i feel capable of commenting on their perfomance and capabilities. My experience of them has been quite a bad one. The amount of breakdowns and faults has been discraceful. Firstly the lights werent working, secondly, the car thought it had water...

“Discovery TD5 ES 7”

ProGoes and carries everything, everywhere.

ConsNot quickly....

I've owned the Discovery for 2 years now. Yes it's had problems, a lot of these were down to previous owner and where he took it for repairs though. I rebuilt the head after gasket failure, only to find someone had already been in there and 'bodged' it. Radweld should be banned..... After getting...

I recently bought a 1990 (G) 2.5TDI Land Rover Discovery and have been really impressed with the overall package so far. First of all the driving position is fantastic, you cannot get any better than being up high and being able to see everywhere, the 360 degree visiblity is also very good. The...

We have owned and driven our Dissy for 15 months. We bought it 2nd Hand, a year old with 24,000 miles on the clock. The driver's seat had a tear in the side, which was replaced under warranty. Aside from this the only other problem we had was when I inadvertently filled up with unleaded instead...

I bought a Discovery 1,5 TD5 automatic in June 2001. I went on holiday for a month. When I came back I had problem steering the car. It turned out that the steering wheel was getting loose. The ABS brakes bloke the car when it gets wet. No control then. It makes a grinding noise. The answer from...

We have launched Land Rover Hell www.LandRoverHell.com as a result of the consistent problems that we have experienced with our Land Rover Discovery since its purchase, almost 3 years ago. Besides all the problems with the car, what has compounded matters is the bad service and general uninterested and unhelpful attitude of Land Rover Spain, and Land Rover head office in the U.K. witness my terrible experiences at www.landroverhell.com

Hi I thought I would write a review of my TD5 ES as most of the reviews on here were very old and I thought a newer review would be helpful when looking to buy a secondhand td5 as some are 11 years old now. I have owned this car for 1 year now & it is the best 4x4 I have ever had and I have had...

People buy 4x4 vehicles for a number of reasons. Some people do buy them because of a genuine need for a vehicle which can get them through mud-plugged fields and up or down severe inclines but being realistic this is probably not a high percentage of 4x4 sales. There are probably four market...

I owned my Disco for no less than 3 years and it was the most frustrating 'ride' of my life. I had an endless series of problems with the car which were always an effort to fix. Some of the problems were never traced by the dealers. The car would frequently fail to start or go into "limp home...
