Asked by Shaun Muller
My wife and I have a 2010 Honda CR-V Luxury, which is quite heavy on fuel and tyres although it seems a good solid car. We have two young children and we like to pack up and get away, and have found the Honda a little on the small side. We are considering a 2012/13 Land Rover Discovery. Can you give me any advice on what to look out for and any other cars that are worth considering please? We are planning on this being our family car for quite a long time, so we want something with plenty of all round capabilities and are considering a camper trailer when our son is a bit older. My wife and her sister like to take the children and a 7-seater really appeals due to the flexibility of them travelling together on longer trips.

The Discovery 4 is highly regarded by owners. It’s a very capable off-roader, comfortable and refined on the road, and there are few issues to worry about. Service costs are high if you use a factory dealer, but there are plenty of independent mechanics able to take care of it for you. When checking a Discovery check for use off-road, and look for one that has been pampered within the town boundaries. If you don’t want a car that will go off-road perhaps look at a Toyota Kluger 7-seater or a Mazda CX-9.
