“Brilliant all-rounder that's very comfortable to drive. But the diesel engine needs more power. Overtaking anything other than a stationary object becomes dangerous!”

“This is the first time that I have bought a 4x4 and I rate the Discovery 3 as a very high quality car and it has been faultless. I cover a lot of motorway miles and even after 250-mile journey, I still arrive fresh. It even manages over 30 mpg, 33 being achieved on one long journey. The engine in particular gives a good performance and is very refined as is the ride comfort. I intend buying another when I change. As I have had no faults, and with 15,000 mile service intervals, I have not had any reason to contact the dealer but they keep me informed of various events etc. and are providing 50% off the price of my first service.”

“What can I say – I absolutely love it. It is simply the best car I have ever owned!”

Mr Paul Burt – County Durham

“Overall a great car. Land Rovers are no nonsense and you know what you are buying - I just wish they were a little more reliable mechanically and slightly less thirsty.”

Mr John Hollingsworth - Clitheroe

“Great car, very practical, quiet running and comfortable. For a diesel, though, its fuel consumption is way too high at an average 23 mpg.”

Mr Dwayn Clover - Lincs

Manufacturer Verdict (Position - 27th)

Its current model line-up is proving popular, yet Land Rover’'s problem is that its cars of yesteryear are dragging it down. As more examples of the firm’'s latest Discovery are reported on, the firm’'s position has risen by four places, but the old-shape Disco and previous Freelander are ruining the line-up’'s average rating. However, one thing holding back the whole range is its steep running costs.
