I have had a 200 and a 300 and now I have the TD5 ES. The previous landrovers were ok but the TD5 is in a different league. I have had one break down in it on the way to cornwall whilst towing my caravan from leeds, turned out to be a collapsed hose to the intercooler which cost £ 140 fitted on site.It pulls my caravan which is a twin axle with five bikes and five people on board. It uses a tad more juice when towing. The TD5 engine has far more gutts than the previous discoverys. Also the… Read Full Review

I can't speak highly enough of my Series II Disco SE7 Td5(similar to the ES7 spec without sunroof). Offroad in stock specification it continually outperforms Patrols and Land Cruisers. I have taken this car on two of the most arduous 4wd trips in Australia (Cape York then Simpson Desert, Oodnadatta etc) and it coped with the trips effortlessly. It never gets stuck and I have zero reliability issues to report. Raising the airbag suspension has saved me from embaressment a couple of time and the… Read Full Review

I had a 200 tdi for 7 years then bought a 2000 TD5 Millenium Edition March 08 for £5000. The TD5 drives so much better than the old Discovery. The ACE and ABS are a must. Would not consider one without.
These cars go anywhere and inspire confidence when they do… Read Full Review

I have owned this 2000 Land Rover Td5 GS since April this year with only 70,000 miles on the clock and it has had three major breakdowns. Two weeks after collecting the car from the dealer all the electrics went haywire and the Fusebox under the dash had to be replaced - expensive. Two weeks later it had to go back to the dealer for a new Turbo and to get the rear sunroof fixed (common problem?). This was done FOC. I have now just replaced the water pump and top hose after having been plagued… Read Full Review

Mixed view of this car, on one hand it's very comfortable and capable car. On the other, it's proved itself unreliable and prone to give us some rather unwelcome bills.
We bought the Discovery to replace a Volvo 850 estate that had run up 185000 miles. The reason for the Land Rover was it's off road ability would be useful when we go skiing. The first trip was however a summer one to the South of France.
Even before we set off we had problems, the injector harness in the cylinder head leaked… Read Full Review

The Land Rover Discovery is a grand vehicle, not one regret in ownership! I personally would not choose any other vehicle to be used as what could be classed luxury car that doubles as a quality off-road tool in comfort...........there is the Range Rover but we don't have mega bucks to spend!… Read Full Review

I will never buy or own for free any Land Rover product ever again - we have spent and lost fortunes in the mistaken belief that we couldn't be so unlucky again and we were.
Even when using a brand new R/R whilst in Saudi it overheated and could not cope with the sand, A/C failed several times, no joke when its 38c outside. They are overpriced, of questionable quality, unreliable, and lose value faster than a concrete submarine on it's last dive. I know one chap who has had 3 R/R before he got… Read Full Review

Goes anywhere and the Land Rover Discovery tows an enormous heavy trailer like a demon. I have had virtually nothing go wrong in 45500 miles, of which 15000 miles were towing an average of 2.5 tons in all weathers through France. I bought this pre-reg left hand drive ES7 with delivery mileage new in 2003. It has satnav, rear aircon and all the top of the range ES refinements and cost only £24,500. With block exemption, I never use a main dealer to service th LR as they are far too… Read Full Review

I had a 1993 Land Rover Discovery TDi for several years and was impressed by its off road ability. In July 2005 it broke down 5 times within the month so I traded it in for a TD5 ES7. Unfortunately, the new car cannot even cope with flat wet grass !
Land Rover have had the car back but cannot find anything wrong and are at a loss. I am left with a very expensive, ON-road, exectutive toy.
DON'T BUY ONE !… Read Full Review

I imported my UK spec Land Rover Discovery TD5 Auto ES 7 seat from Holland for a hefty saving. For what I paid, I think I got a bargain. The ES in this model year had electric everything (seat adjust, headed seats & windows, windows, dimming rear view mirror, digital compass, 6cd autochanger, powerfold mirrors, 2 electric sunroofs), rear aircon, the all important curry hook - all as standard.
I've had nothing serious go wrong - the petrol filler flap kept popping open for a while, but this… Read Full Review
