Hi all,
Looking at maybe buying a 2000 Discovery TD5, Turbo Diesel, Auto. Can owners provide some genuine comments / recommendations please? Haven't owned one before, so would appreciate some advice.

Thanks

Mick

Nothing wrong with the car, engine, systems etc. However one downfall of the one you are looking at is that in Landrovers wisdom at the time there is no centre diff lock as they decided traction control could handle everything - not a good decision.

However all is not bad as the actual central diff lock is still in the transfer case for the 99/00 to mid 01 models so you can buy activation kits for them. Have a look at this thread on AULRO.com to get all the good information http://www.aulro.com/afvb/discovery-2/1 ... lease.html
