I always see this fun question pop up on most forums i'm on, even forums based on completely different products and its always interesting to see the results.

Often, if you understand the product enough you can guess what the ownership history of a lot of people will be. At the same time that assumption can be very wrong.

To start. I owned a...

  • 1998 BMW 328is (first car)
  • 2004 BMW M3
  • 2003 Lexus LS430
  • Currently - NOTHING, just taking a mix of Uber's, Taxi's, Rentals and Public Transit.

I've owned the following. I spent many years riding the local transit system so there was no need for a car. However, here is my list..

1) Jeep Yj
2) Mazda 6
3) Mazdaspeed 3
4) Mercedes Benz CLA45 (mistress)

My current love affair which will be returned once the discovery sport is ready for delivery (May 2017)

1986 Subaru
1994 Suzuki (my first 4x4)
2000 Isuzu Rodeo (worst car I ever had, real lemon! Every thing that can go wrong went wrong...)
2003 Montero Sport (loved that one)
2010 Mitsubishi Outlander (more car than truck but very reliable)
2016 DS

I use to keep my cars 6 years but haven't decided yet for this one. Love it and absolutely no problems with it but parts and labor are astronomics... So the plan is to keep it for the warranty period (4 years) and i'll decide then.

So for me, it is always SUV/ crossover, keeping it under 60k miles to get decent resale value. I am not disappointed with Discovery Sport but I am also not impressed. Next time I will take a look at F-Pace, Benz GLC and new Audi Q5.

I would say the the 60 has a much better ride, comfort wise, we had a AWD and more space interior wise on the 60. The big thing we have dog and not allowing the back seats to fully lay flat sucks for us. The main reason why we got out of the Volvo line was that the interior was getting to plastic and toy looking. MPG is better with the DS. So yes I would have to agree that the 60 does in all shape and form at least with the 2103 model beats the DS..

OMG the list would be long. Id have to list out about 30 vehicles between the two of us. LOL! Technically, we bought the Disco Sport for my wife and she came directly out of a 2013 F150 Super Crew 4x4 truck. In recent years she has been though a few SUVs and a full size truck. Her last two SUVs were both Expeditions. We traded her last Expy for the F150. It was time for a change as she just got tired of dealing with large vehicles. The size of the DS as been exceptional for her and our family's needs.
My personal vehicle will always be a truck as SUVs just dont work for my day to day needs. PLus our boat is too big for the DS to tow.

We had a 2006 Commander that we bought new in 06. It was a potentially great vehicle (chose it over a LR3) but it turned out to be a lemon. Didnt last long for us.

Curious, T1T2GRE and PYT, since you came from the Evoque, what are your thoughts comparing the two? (and why the move to the DS)?
