  • Discovery Sport 2016 - 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport
    By -

    I never envisioned myself in a Discovery Sport, until I drove one. Originally I went to Land Rover to test drive the Evoque. I spotted a white and black Discovery Sport and basically, it was over for the Evoque. I had previously read about all the "issues" with the Discovery and found not one complaint to be true. I had no trouble with acceleration or rough starts. All questions and concerns were answered and reviewed with the salesperson. One test drive, in the rain, was over 2 hours long. I wanted to drive the vehicle in bad weather. Incredible response to the road in the pouring rain. I could not be happier with my Discovery Sport.

    Overall excellent performance on road & off road. Transmission shifts are rough & unpredictable. Normally drive in Sports mode, tends to smooth out transmission shifts & acceleration. Cargo space is great! Electronics are sometimes a bit quirky. (for example: side view mirrors dont fold out automatically sometimes when they should, get fault that auto high beam sensor is blocked when it is not, rendering auto high beam inoperable).

    Ive had this vehicle as a lease for 8000 miles now. Everything has been fabulous. Drive is great and very luxurious.

    Have four months and over 3000 miles on the Discovery so far. Found the ride and finish to be excellent. Fuel consumption is better than expected, short trips to and from work in the low 20s, highway between 26-28. Managed 30.9 on a long highway trip thru NC mountains! Havent taken off road yet, but expect to use the 4WD modes this winter. Interior gets lots of positive comments, rear seats for tall passengers is great. Looked at the Q5/7, Infinity QX line, Porsche Maycan & Cayenne, found the Discovery to fit all my needs for passenger room, cargo area, and towing, as well as fit and finsh. Did not expect it to be a speed demon, but the turbo kicks in nicely when needed. Ride is very comfortable on in-town roads, very smooth on the highway and a delight thru the mountain curves. The pano roof makes the interior very well lit and roomy during the day. I ordered the options and color I wanted, which took 3 months due to the end of European summer holidays, it has been well worth the wait.

    Love the purchase of my 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport. Comfortable ride, great steering. I think Land Rover should provided upgraded headlights on the SE as standard equipment. Most brands do. Shifting is a little strange but I’m happy with vehicle.

  • Three things - 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport
    By -

    After debating for months between this car, the Mercedes GLC and the BMW X3 I went with this car and overall I am happy with it. It has a unique style that people notice (doesnt look like a glorified stationwagon-hatchback), the seats recline in the back & thus are comfortable for adults to sit in for longer than 20 minutes and the interior is not full of superfluous touchpads-mouses-etc so you actually have a place, that isnt the passenger seat, to set something down. I have had the car for about 2-ish weeks and only have 3 issues with the car 1. There is no compass...for a car designed for off-the-beaten-path driving the only way to know which cardinal direction you are heading is to cue up the navigation. I miss the simple N/NE/E/S/SE/W/NW display I had on my rear view mirror in my Nissan. 2. The Heads-Up display is not bright enough to be seen on a Sunny day, but you will definitely see the reflection/glare of the screen that is generating it. 3. The left-right arrow buttons on the steering wheel do not chose between the 18 preset radio stations instead they act like a radio tuner. (I.e. you end up going thru every single radio station that comes in, instead of the ones you know you want to listen to) Kind of undermines the idea of convenience that goes with preprogramming your radio stations or putting buttons on the wheel to control the radio. (If I am wrong on this, please someone tell me how to change it)

    I have had this car into the dealer several times starting with a coolant leak, failed water pump, computer system failures. The dealer didnt do all the work they said they did or the problems I had, wouldnt have happened. One cylinder lost compression at 58,000 miles with no warning. Dealer says needs a new engine that will cost $21K. But, they have no idea what broke. Car isnt even two years old. Land Rover and dealership customer service is horrorific compared to my previous experiences with dealerships. Then even stuck me with the rental car bill and towing bill after they took 5 days to tell me anything. I am now stuck trying to unload this car at a loss. This car is like a hot guy with no brains... looks good on the outside, but cant go the distance.
