Rejjie Posted September 3, 2006 Share Posted September 3, 2006 I'm looking for a bit of feedback from anyone who has experience of runniing and living with both Freelanders and Disco's. I currently own a 2001 GS 2.0 Td4 diesel manual station wagon which has proved excellent to accommodate the family of four, small dog and towing our caravans - although you may disagree! I have the opportunity of changing to a 2003 GS 2.5 Td5 diesel 7 seater auto Disco (face lifted model). If this particular Disco that I am looking at was not for sale I would not be thinking of changing just yet as the Freelander that I have does everything we need right now. The reason I am considering this is mainly due to the extra seating capacity to take other familer members out and about with us and the extra safety margin for towing our twin axle caravan. I am concerned about the running costs of this larger vehicle i.e. fuel, insurance, servicing etc. I will not be able to park the anything larger than a Freelander in my garage and also have concerns about leaving it open to the street at night - i.e. theft. Both vehicles get good reports what do you think - is a Disco2 really worth the extra cost? I also have a similar posting in the Freelander forum too Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
