      Old vs New! How Does this old Discovery II compare to the today's Discovery? Find out here as we take both of them up Gold Mine Hill: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYDZIDk-X1s

      @Rawiri 19 it's just a bit of everything. I own and daily-drive one with over 185k miles and basically you just need to know that there will be monthly or at least bi-monthly maintenance involved.

      They're just completely different. At a 4-5k buy-in and an awareness that there WILL be regular maintenance involved in ownership, there's no better SUV bang-for-your-experience-buck than owning a Discovery II.

      A shame you did not point out what was so unreliable about the Landrover , as alluded to at the beginning . Was it mechanical was it electrical ??? What !

      Excellent review. I don't think you missed a thing. I owned three of them (a Series 2 and two Series 3s - at least, that's how they were designated in Australia). The last of the Series 3 was the best one by far (as they re-introduced the ability to activate the centre diff lock). I loved it. It was the best highway car I ever had (the handling was augmented with the astonishingly effective active anti-roll suspension [ACE]) as well as being enormously capable off-road. It had one major drawback - it was an absolute gas guzzler - hideously expensive to drive around town. But that was offset with how good the Disco looked. They have absolutely mangled the latest one - too high tech, no rail frame, and it looks like every other softroader on the market. I can't imagine it's going to be reliable after a year or two - especially with 56pounds of boost... crikey - that's a disaster waiting to happen. Anyway - top marks for your excellent run down. I hope you get many many enjoyable adventure miles (or kilometres) out of yours.

      If it makes you feel any better, the door handle surrounds and other areas are add-on 'wood' features. The only factory wood is the belt-line on the dash.

      I really enjoyed this video. Thanks. One question, I understood all 99 to 2004s had Bosch engines and not the 4.6 you referenced? Cheers and Rover on.

      I have a 2002 V8 Discovery 2 ,bought second hand in 2003 with 40 000 kms on the clock.She has now done 300 000 kms .The engine has never let me down and has never had any repairs done to it save for regular oil changes.Does not use a drop of oil. I live in South Africa and have driven at least half of its life on gravel roads.She has been up mountains and through deserts in Namibia. Great car ,great comfort great reliability.

      Error at 9:53 -10:02 A traditional (mechanical) locking a differential does NOT split torque. It just assures the wheels are turning at the same speed. For example, assume the front wheels are airborne while the rear wheels are on pavement. The front wheels will essentially require ZERO torque while the rear wheels will transfer 100% of the engine's torque. However, a braking based locker DOES equalize torque by artificially adding a frictional load. Compared to a mechanical locker, this wastes power

      A locked (center) diff is not a 50:50 torque distribution though. An open diff has a 50:50 torque split. A closed diff will have varying torque distributions depending on the traction on each side. It locks the revolution speed to be equal on both sides, torque will vary.

      there's no surprising truth...while it does incredibly well off road, it's on road break downs and hideous gas mileage are legendary and not over exaggerated

      You did a superb job describing all of the idiosyncrasies of the Disco II. I use to drive them as loaners and loved their sound systems. On the road, they are not bad. I never took them off- road as I did my Rangie.

      video: 2:13 We got a circler high beam down below the main beam

      This is a 25 minute video man c'mon... I understand the value of doug demuro and small channels who get to the point

      Thoroughly enjoyed the review. I've had my current 04 D2 since 06 & 100K miles.. LOVE it. Mine is similar to yours except I also have the Terra Firma wheel spacers, diff guards & tank guard, plus the Mantec snorkel. All useful kit for Arizona off roading.
