If you have ever owned a Land Rover Discovery and had to replace any parts we would love to hear about your experience and the performance of the replacement parts. Leave your comments in the comments box at the bottom of the page.


The Land Rover Discovery is a mid-sized SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) which is produced by the British automobile manufacturing company Land Rover. The Discovery has been in production since 1989 and is currently in its fourth generation of production as the Discovery 4. This latest version is a very stylish vehicle which has a very luxurious feel and is extremely well built. It has plenty of space in the interior and is very comfortable, making it a very practical vehicle. It has excellent off-road capabilities, is very well equipped and handles really well too. The only real downfall for this vehicle is the extremely high running costs. Does this sound anything like your experience of the Discovery?


The Discovery I (1989-98) was introduced in 1989 and was based on the more upmarket Range Rover. Originally this vehicle was only available with 3-doors, as the 5-door version was released the following year. This vehicle was facelifted in 1994 and some markets received this as the Discovery II. Discovery II (1998-2004) was a totally new designed vehicle with Land Rover claiming that there was 720 differences to the original Discovery. The only thing that remained the same as the previous version was the outer rear door skin. Discovery III (2004-2009) was known as the LR3 in North America and was built on a newly produced Land Rover IBF (Integrated Body Frame). In 2008, a facelifted version was released. Discovery IV (2009-onwards) is basically an updated version of the Discovery III. It has several new exterior parts and has a rounder design, similar to the Range Rover. This is the current version on the market.
