      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.

      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.

      doors and window frames are the same (pretty much) as a RRC from 1970, as are many of the other parts, I have often swapped parts from this series of vehicles, Defender, Disco, RRC ,-)

      I have a 2003 Disco 2 TD5 - manual transmission with over 330,000 km's on the clock and still running very well. One of the design flaws that Land Rover did when they started with the Disco 3's and upwards, was to take the spare wheel off the back door and put this under the back of the car. I've had to change tyres before in the hot Kalahari, and I count myself as fortunate that I could access the spare easily. I've heard people complain that when they've tried to change the tyre on a Disco 3 - and the car is sitting low in hot, thick sand - it is a nightmare to get the spare tyre out from underneath the car.

      God, I miss my Discos so much! I've had five; a Series 1, 2 Series 2s and 2 Series 3s. The all time favourite was the second Series 2; one of the last of the Series 2s when LR loaded it with toys. Took it overland from London through Europe into Turkey and down into the Syrian desert. Never missed a beat and supremely comfortable. Did you know that the interior design on the original Series 1 was done by Sir Terence Conran, founder of the Habitat chain of interior design stores? I now have a Freelander 2 (LR2), which is almost as much fun. Thanks for the nostalgia!

      What a rickety chincy shifter casing. Definitely needs to be custom cased in wood. Sounds like it’s a cheep toy. Also, I don’t think yet put indicators on both sides to save cost, I think it was done for ease of visibility in case your spotter passenger has to shift for you while your busy driving and pushing moose out of your window

      Surprising Truth - the fact that this Disco 2 still runs and drives makes it a special unicorn. If he had tried 95% of them in 2002 or so I doubt his review would be as glowing, what with the constant electrical and electronic breakdowns, leaking windshields and sunroofs, transmission failures, bad engines, and lack of parts (in the US). My 2000 Disco 2 was dreadful from new, ands only became reliable after the dealer's shop rebuilt a large percentage of it. Then it was solid. All that being said, I later built it for off road use with front and rear lockers, center diff lock modification, ARB winch bumper with a 12.5k SuperWinch, 2 inch OME lift and suspension, etc.and used it extensively.

      I have driven these and NEVER have placed transmission into 3rd gear. It easily goes into DRIVE, clear enough seen in the cluster and the small lights beside the selector lever. Not sure what is the problem here. Maybe it is as Andy García said on the Sean Connery AFL Tribute, "maybe it is a lack of intelligence from your part"...

I'm not aftaid to try new or even old things...e.g. I've owned Subaru Outbacks-great in snow tracks and better imho than LC or LR. I've also owned Toyota Landcruisers and Landrovers so I know that each vehicle is MASSIVELY underappreciated by fanboys/fangirls of each competing brand...imho driving an Old landy is the most rewarding off road experience one can have.

      CrossCountry Adventure & Overland

      Hey TheFastLaneCar, the reason the rear door aperture is so small is a kinda long story. When the original Range Rover was launched in 1970 it was a 2 door. The company intended to offer a longer wheelbase 4 door version, but with all of Land Rovers profits going to keeping the Rover company afloat they never had the cash. Eventually they squeezed in another couple of doors and did a 4 door on the 100” wheelbase, so those rear doors are pretty small. The Disco 1 body shell is just a modified classic Range Rover shell, and the D2 is the same, so those small rear doors lasted right through to 2004.
      The company did eventually do a longer wheelbase Range Rover Classic - the LSE is on a 108” wheelbase and has bigger rear doors, as originally intended. The lImited production LSE was actually a proof of concept for a longer Range Rover on 4 way air suspension, the concept which became the P38. 👍🏻

      That's what some people don't understand. The main problem is not reliability but mainly that a lot of broke people keep buying the trucks and the parts and repairs are expensive. This vehicles are maintenance intensive and rightfully so given what they do on the bush. I have decided to prep a crate engine which I will put the best parts available in wait for when the other one needs major work. Then I will swap them and do the same to the other engine. That way I always have a second engine available.

      My Disco 2 was the coolest car I have ever owned. My favorite feature was the handles on the headrests on the front seats. Also I loved the way the piping looked on the tan interiors. As for yours, someone added the wood trim on the doors an moor roof control. The only factory piece of wood was above the glove box and, if you have a 2004 HSE model, at the gear selector.
