    Land Rover Discovery 4 HSE.... Or Volvo XC90 R- Design ???

    We have a perfectly mint condition..of course... `09 plate Kuga Titanium, Frozen White, daily driver, with only 60k miles on the clock
    wifes car mostly..but fancy a change....as you do..so...,

    Thinking either a Land Rover Discovery 4 HSE OR a Volvo R Design XC90 Budget around £13k ish

    Just wondered if anyone owns either and what they their thoughts are.. While the Disco 4 is one of the best 4x4s on the market, it seems if u get a
    bad one, you get a really bad one.. however i am handy with the spanners, so dont mind the odd thing or two.. not cheap RFL at over £500 pa too
    and not cheap with 120k cars still fetching £13k

    Volvo...cant say much, just like the look of it.. Both are nice quality, proper built cars with plenty of gadgets for my old age!

    Land Rover are known to be expensive and unreliable but I have a Volvo XC60 T5 R Design and itís a stunning car except I bought a petrol and struggling to get the average fuel consumption above 25.5. Although much better than my 67 Fastback. Should have bought the diesel but still love the car

        Have a Kuga TDCi powershift Titanium X past 3 + years. End of the year will be changing it for another Kuga. Found it to be one of the most reliable comfortable & nice looking car
        have had in a long long time. Have the AWD one with only niggle was it was utterly useless in the ice. Maybe the tyres but as we dont get that much bad weather will go for the 2WD
        next one. A guy I know has a Disco & reckons the reoair bills have come to more then what he paid for it. No idea re Volvo just not heard bad about them

          Merc ML of that age is likely to be less expensive to maintain. Son had one for a number of years, had no problem with it.
          I've currently got a newish GLC and it's great.

            I've haven't owned either but from observed comments elsewhere unless you really need the outstanding off road capabilities of the Disco, then get the Volvo or something else.
            You don't really need a Disco if all you're doing is towing a Caravan across a field.

              Reliability wise, I would opt for the Volvo.
              i had a new XC90 for 5 years. The only thing that needed replacing was the horn after around 6 months from new.

                  Volvo all the way, every time! Very reliable, all the toys you need (and some you don't with top end versions) coupled with good looks. If the economy doesn't overly bother you, stick with a petrol engine (unless you need the low end torque?). My local specialist garage makes most of its money from Discos and they work on Jags, Mercs, Rollers, Lambos etc. 'Nuff said.
                  . Cars, photos, wine. What else is there?
