Land Rover Discovery

The Land Rover Discovery has forged a path of popularity with a loyal group of owners since its launch in 2009.

Its large size, Range Rover-esque looks and a connection to the classic Land Rover Defender of old combines with genuine off-road ability and on-road manners. An all-new Discovery 5 – the first under new owners Tata – launched in 2017, adding a more premium level of appointment to the Disco while maintaining its boxy dimensions. From the base $73,221 Discovery SD4 S (177kW) to the top-spec $126,399 Discovery SDV6 HSE LUXURY (225kW), the big 'Disco' is available with petrol and diesel engines across the line, along with Land Rover's excellent 'Terrain Response' off-roading system.

Land Rover Discovery Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Land Rover Discovery here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Land Rover Discovery 2017: Need replacing due to major problems

    Document the problems with the car and any work that has been done on it since you’ve owned it and take them to JLR with a request that they advise you on what work they plan to do to fix the problems. If that doesn’t get a satisfactory response then go to your state consumer affairs office, or perhaps lodge a complaint with VCAT.

  • Land Rover Discovery 2016: Buying tips

    There are more Toyotas seen in the bush because they have a reputation for reliability. As a result there are many more dealerships around the bush, and mechanics are more familiar with fixing them when necessary, but should the Disco break down for some reason parts are only a phone call away in one of our capital cities or major towns. Checking the vehicle before going away on a trip is always a good idea, but that won’t necessarily mean it won’t break down.

  • Land Rover Discovery 2018: Leaking sunroof

    Based on what you’ve told us it would seem to be a fair call, but I’m guessing that Land Rover won’t be keen to come to the party and will attempt to repair your car. But being so new, and knowing the damage that water can do to a car I would also be keen to have it replaced.

  • Is the Land Rover Discovery known for problems?

    There are no ‘lemon’ laws in Australia, but there are laws to protect consumers in the case of faulty products. Contact the ACCC for info on those laws. You don’t say, so I will assume the problems with the air con and the infotainment system have been rectified, and the oil leak is under investigation. On that basis I don’t believe you have cause to think you have a ‘lemon’. Fix the oil leak and carry on.
