If you want a toy, look towards a Disco Series 1...simpler, much more utilitarian interior, center diff lock and somewhat less painful to own (simpler!).

What didn't you like?

In 2001, my family went to the Tampa new car show, and knobs had already fallen off the stereo of a Land Rover. I decided that day I would never own a Land Rover.

I hardly ever encountered them where I worked, but when I did, they needed a fortune in repairs. Repairing a Benz seems cheap when compared to repairing a Land Rover.

Yeah..I remember seeing the same in a first year Disco in the showroom!

Nevertheless, I wanted one as a DD for years (should have bought that Defender in '94, but that is a different story), but just couldn't do until I felt comfortable that they had worked out most of the stupid things that plagued the earlier models. Finally bought a RR Sport in '12 after a horrible experience w/ a Grand Cherokee, figured it couldn't be any worse, and it wasn't..after a few minor teething problems (heated steering wheel wasn't powered, water pump weep), it was great for the next 5 years. I traded it for a new Range Rover HSE w/ the turbodiesel and it has been great so far. Will LR ever be Honda/Toyota quality...no, one look at volume and R&D spend answers that, but they are fine now.

Actually, pretty much all cars are at least good now... We've come a long way.

People steal them. You'll see the same at any auto show.
