  4 HSE 3.0L SDV6

so far bestest car

replaced my 2010 TDV6 with 2016 SDV6
Now I've had a 500 se merc, 528i beemers and many others
But this car drives as well as most, ok it does not go thru winding roads like the beemer
but the power is great with 600nm torques,
for a 2700 kg with driver, acceleration is superb 0-60 km 8.8
I modified the front calipers to fit 18 inch rims so as i could fit better ATM tyres
swapped to 5w40 oil as researched by LR TIME Youtube
level of trim is high, sound system awesome Show details

Simply - brilliant!

I have always loved motoring and always had good cars - Jaguars, Daimler, Peugeot, Mercedes, Land Rovers and Range Rovers. Eleven years ago we bought a new Discovery 4. Without any doubt it is the best car I have ever driven. At 190,000 k's I can see no way that it is different from the day it was new. Show details

Don't waste time. Your vehicle will be obsolete in no time

A stupid primitive money hungry company who would rather make their loyal fan base purchase new vehicles than make their existing ones upgradeable. I have a my12 discovery 4 and my sat nav is obsolete. Cannot upgrade it anywhere. Funnily enough i can still find uograde discs for '05 onwards rr vogue... and sport... Buy a jeep instead don't waste your time with these elitists. Not happy!!!

Worst car, Landrover customer service & dealership I have ever experienced

Bought in 2017 & it’s now 2021 & we are still having problems. It’s already on its 2nd engine & only a few days ago it broke down again. Possibly a 3rd engine. To date it’s been a terrible experience from dealership & Landrover Aus. I will hold back on this occasion to see if any of them come good on this most recent issue. Standby for an update but we are not confident that any of them will come through for us, Landrover have already disputed the extended warranty even though the warranty is with Alliance & they have confirmed we are covered? Show details

Beautiful drive but full of issues

My Apple car okay has never really worked in my 2019 Disco. The car itself is lovely to drive but the issues I have had are far too many. I cannot get the Apple car play fixed they seem unable to rectify the issue. I am so dissapointed with the cost of the car to have had so many issues with it. Never buy one again and won’t own it much longer. Very very upset Show details

Legend Discovery 4

People always said LR had lots of issues or problems, but my experiences with LR4 is quite good. I purchased my LR4 brand new from Purnell Land Rover back in 2015. Served my family for almost 6 years, and never had any issues. Super comfort. And thge TDV6 engine is well tuned and bullet proof if you well maintained. Show details
