Absolutly appalling quality

had to have towed 4 times in 2.5 years for DPF. Total lemon - customer service at Land Rover head office is more than terrible. Don't waste your money. Show details

Have fallen in love with this car

We have had this car since new and have now done over 110,000 km.
There has not been any mechanical problems to date and a few structural teething problems early on were fixed by the dealer
Exceptional mileage on long trips and low cost to maintain. We love our car and kayak hike and travel lots. Show details

I must have got a good one!

I purchased my disco sport new in late 2015 (MY16) and still have it. Done 150,000kms and use it as a family car everyday and been off road a handful of times. I absolutely LOVE this car. There must be a lot of lemons out there but mine has been a dream. I service only at the dealer in Canberra (which I cant complain about). I'm keeping this car long term. To all the sceptics, there are good ones out there! Show details

A quiet achiever

This is my day use car and after some hesitancy I have grown to love it. It's got all the gismos one needs and it's versatility is delighful. It can transport wine, big dog, shopping and suitcases for a week away, as well as be a 7 seater, a easy to use town car and when called upon something that manages flooded streets. If you need it can also get a move on and while not the fastest it can still over take a road train going uphill and outpace anyone you need to. So far (one year from new) not a single fault. I'm beginning to love it. Show details

Major oil leak from transfer case found at 4th service. Dealer and Manufacturer refused to repair!

Had lots of problems with this car. Worst problem was a major oil leak from the transfer case that was found at the 4th service at 104000km. Was originally told not to worry and that Purnell Land Rover would not leave me out in the cold over the extra 4000 km but was then refused any repairs from both the dealer and manufacturer. Show details

Worst car ever!!

terrible product. Just 2 years old, done only 26000 kms, already engine replaced, leaking roof, never ending exhaust problems and to top it all, the display constantly asks us to take car for service even within 1 week after service is done!! really regret I have bought this piece of S**t! Show details

Diesel engine proving to be a problem

These Landrover diesels need to come with a buyer beware warning on the diesel engines, which suffer badly from oil dilution and need many more services than advertised.

JLR continue to promote fictional service interval despite issuing a notice to dealers that the extra servicing requirements is a known problem. Google oil dilution Landrover diesel and see a long list of very unhappy customers who have been mislead by JLR marketing both here and overseas.

Great family SUV

Got a great deal on our "Disco" Sport, that included 3 years free servicing, in addition to the discounted sale price plus our modern l was packed with features including 7 seat option. Interior has ample storage, heaps of USB ports so family is happy on long trips. Vehicle is quiet, refined on long trips and not too big in the city. Fuel economy is Ok for this type of car and power of turbo petrol excellent. Love it!
