What a Lemon of a Car
We bought ours brand new back in 2018 with the new Ingenium 2.0L Diesel engine, and dealer failed to mention that this car needs to be driven once a week on the hwy for the DPF to regenerate properly due to bad engineering design. DPF too far from the engine to heat up on short drives.
After 10,000kms service light came on and had to be taken to the dealer for a service well below their recommended 25,000km service intervals. Front tyres showed significant wear at the same time but dealer shrugged it off as a wheel alignment issue which they a...

Great car when running, So many small issues.
Very practical design, comfortable to drive. Only if we didn't have all these issues this would have been a great car.
We use it on a daily basis, 28K KM's in just under 2 years. Though Discovery Sport claims service every 34K KMS or 2 years whichever is first the information display keeps popping up as Service required. I did do a service after 1 year (Which is not covered in the service plan). Just 28,000 KMS and the brake pads are worn out, $1200 to fix them, I have not had this problem in any of my previous cars (Not Land Rover). Initial...ly we were thinking that our next upgrade will be a Discovery, but I am not so sure anymore. Added: 07 Jan 2019, took my car for a wheel rotation last week (Every 10K). All 4 tires which came by default were chipped and I had to change tires (All of 30,000 Kms). Very rare off-road trips, mainly to scout camp sites. Car was driven mainly in Sydney streets.
Land Rover Discovery Sport Turbo diesel Td4 150
Recently purchased this vehicle after extensive research in the mid range SUV category. The vehicle performance is excellent with great road manners and stance. Great amount of room for 5 adults and plenty of cargo space. Definitely worthy of consideration for towing with 2.2 tonne braked tow capacity. I am very pleased to have selected vehicle. A really great product!
2 years since purchasing and there have been some small issues with the tailgate opening when not activated- luckily only while in the garage. The dealer knew of the issue a...nd addressed it quickly and effectively. The diesel exhaust fluid required more topping up than anticipated but still not an issue whilst under warranty. I attended an off road course by an approved training provider and realised a significant short coming with ground clearance resulting in the loss of a plastic panel below the passenger side doors. It’s a great soft roader and great for a fire trail in Oz, but not for any serious, crazy off road stuff. It has its limits if you don’t have air adjustable suspension. CB
