      Jeep, and pretty much anything with Rover in it's name are bound to break down and catch fire sooner or later. I have seen 2 discos and one jeep in the last 18 months on the side of the road burning to the ground. l pity the poor buggers that buy them. Admittedly, Ford Rangers are now giving them a run for their money in the fire my family stakes.

      So many haters. So what if a Disco dances through this stuff?. If yours cant, then maybe there is driver error? Have a great day no matter what you drive. And yes, I drive a Disco :) . I love goin 4x4 with any any breed in company. Its great to see what they/we can/cant do. Name calling is just childish fella's. Smile and grab a snatch strap or help run out a winch line. Enjoy the tracks. Great video and very capable truck. Cheers for sharing :)

      Pffff These are hopeless for any serious outback off road in Australia... main reason being it comes with those stupid low profile wheels/ tyres, if only they could design them to run smaller rims? Would sacrifice on road and braking ability but would make a much better 4wd.. Isn't that what LR designed its main purpose to be? To be one of the best 4wds? instead they're only suitable for easy dirt tracks. Why put all those wizard traction aids unless it was intended to be a serious off roader? It's not a serious 4wd with those stupid wheels! Get real 4x4 Australia!

      That's the thing that jumped out to me as pretty 'odd'. I guess LR know where their core market is and that's clearly not seriously off road too often. Old mate hit the nail on the head with kids transporter and shopping trolley.
      I've no doubt though that it's a bloody capable 4x4. Not too sure what to make of the 19" tyres either.

      How has your reliability been on this mate, I'm thinking of the discovery 3 or 4. Would you go for a V8 or the Diesel.
      What range do you get from either and does this make a great over landing vehicle?

      @Rachel Eugenie as LandRover tech. The common problems are Dpf Regen problems, earthing (electrical) problems, unprotected wiring loom where most ECU's are in the Engine Bay behind the Battery, Battery Drain Issues, Air suspension failure, must replace timing Belt,Water pump,Oil pump After 100k miles or else kaput..., Eats suspension Bushes and Tires, Basically it is a Robust Vehicle with a Few niggles that will get to 400ks miles with regular maintenance. Can withstand offroad Abuse but parts not Cheap. The Best Modern Landrover By Far. A leader in its segment throughout its lifecycle.

      Rachel Eugenie no as far as I know they haven’t got any service dates or mileage on them although we changed ours on the disco 2 when it was 10 years old so they will be due to be replaced again next year... I’ll do it again in another 11 years when the landy is 30 years old and all the land cruisers are dead and gone from the same year!
      My fathers Disco 4 is a 2010 and it’s never had any suspension problems and had a small problem the other week when the fuel sender needed replacing... so it’s had a few suspension bushes and breaks fitted and now a fuel sender unit!

    • Mr J3nk0
      Mr J3nk0 In reply to JR15WA

      JR15WA there's a reason around the world expeditions don't use vehicles with electronic air bag suspension and that auto lowers below 50kmph or where the Center differential can't be manually locked. None of these things can be done in a disco. No one in a remote African township has a $50,000 diagnostic computer sitting in a shed to help you if something goes wrong. It might be ok for use when close to the eastern sea board of rich Australia or through out Europe when the closest town is only 50km away at all times, but it doesn't work in central Mongolia, Russia, africa etc, when alone and out out of luck.

      Mate.....all makers have now got computers controlling all things here in Aussie so no specific land rover issue there... my boss had a NEW 2009 landcuiser 200 that would not activate cruise and not select low range (problem not found or fixed before he on sold it), my cousin working load transfers in Darwn harbour had total engine failure due to over fueling in his work 200 landcruiser....well known oil consumption issues, high fuel consumption, very poor dust sealing, and a rolling ride that makes your passengers sea sick!........ and these are the ones others are now judged by???!

      As a remote tour-er Disc 3/4 would be one of the best..if only for extra fuel tank and external spare wheel!

      Mr J3nk0 In reply to JR15WA

      JR15WA external tyres block rear vision substantially and only provide a benefit for the 30min you may rarely need to change a tyre. Most tyre changes don't even occur in off-road scenarios but rather on bitumen oddly enough. It would be nice if this option were available though for those small market share of drivers who'd appreciate it. After market options do exist if needed. In the end though, as a remote tourer the disco is a poor choice- too many electronics and gizmos that once failed are catastrophic and require thousand dollar LR computers to diagnose and then thousand dollar parts to be sourced from somewhere far away- problematic in a remote outback.

      Mate.... not all of models have to have the expedition features mentioned but if the S and SE diesels did they would transfer a lot more of Toyota sales...and i would then buy one...you dont have to keep them both full around town? does anyone do that? Jerry cans are still carried regardless due to possibility of tank rupture but another tank where the spare wheel is and a rear carrier would be smart..landrovers are supposed to carry their spares externally not underneath..any person who suffers a flat on a hot desert or tropical mud track knows this and why!!!
      Ive been on treks where we used 200litres to do only 300km!

    • Mr J3nk0
      Mr J3nk0 In reply to JR15WA

      JR15WA 150L = 150kg of fuel + weight of tank. Why not just carry a few jerry cans? Doing so minimises risk to fuel storage and the cans can be stored in the shed when not touring saving money not having to transporting heavy loads around town. 95% plus of trips in Australia don't require a max range of more than 1000km between drinks.
