2000 Land Rover Discovery II

2000 Land Rover Discovery II

By Larkin Hill
Staff Writer, The Auto Channel

  • It's truly capable of some serious off-road adventure.
  • A smooth, powerful, and responsive ride -- significantly different from previous platform
  • A ton of storage -- on the roof, doors, and center consul.
  • Two sunroofs! (And two side moonroofs)
  • Two full-size fold-down third-row seats that "disappear" when not in use.
  • Interior is stylish and easy to navigate -- premium materials are used (a good faux suede, real wood, heavy leather and plastic, etc).
  • Keeps a high quality heavy feel, yet is able to break, corner, and accelerate impressively well.
  • Rear seats sit too vertical and are not adjustable -- very uncomfortable for long-term travel.
  • Roof is narrower than seating area -- rain gathers and pours onto the Driver's seat when the door opens.
  • Tall and narrow doors make entry and exit difficult.
  • Oddly placed door handles require significant stretch and are very small.
  • Seats are only adjustable with the key in and ignition turned on. Plus, the controls are under the center armrest-- requiring the driver to either squeeze in and then adjust or lean over the seat while standing outside with the ignition turned on.
  • Third row seat is difficult to put back up.
