Anyone see a Disco Sport on the Road yet? I've yet to see one, everytime I get caught out by an Evoque...

We bought one last weekend. I think it looks better than the photos. The dealer had only two to sell, identical HSEs, white with a black tops and wheels so we have now seen two.

First Land Rover vehicle for us, last two cars were Saabs, the latest a 94X SUV. The Discovery Sport is smaller but has more features packed into it. Handles well, very firm suspension, at least compared to the Saab (which was really a Cadillac SRX with a different skin).

Congratulations! Please share some photos, and as a former Saab owner myself (owned 3), I'd love to read more about your impressions of the car.

first road trip

Drove Hwy 1 North of San Francisco and then over the mountains to Healdsburg. For those who are not familiar with this area, these are narrow, crooked and in some places very steep roads. Also one of the most beautiful areas you will ever see.

The Discovery Sport HSE handled it perfectly. Not hint of hesitation or the transmission feeling like it was searching for the right gear. Did have a chance to use the paddles on some of the more challenging stretches and they worked great. Suspension was firm, kept the car flat, but was not harsh, I think they got just the right level of firmness. Still pleasantly surprised at the power, no sign of turbo lag.

Apart from handling wonderfully it is a darn good looking SUV. I think Land Rover is going to sell a boatload of these cars.

Well Land Rover usually does a great job in terms of design. I'm glad to hear that it drives well too.

I'm just curious if there will be any quality issues once the vehicle has been out for a while. I know that Land Rover has trouble with that at times. I'm also curious about people's experience with Land Rover customer service.

Highway 1 is always a great drive. Haven't done it in many years though.

Good to hear about the responsive transmission. I test drove a Lincoln MKC the other day (was thinking of not waiting any longer for Discovery Sport), and was so disappointed by lag.

Still haven't seen one Discovery Sport on the road yet.
