At least not until the air suss packs up, the autobox starts surging and the leccy handbrake grinds itself to death.
I'm a big fan of Discos, but having owned an X5 and a Disco, I'd never dismiss the X5. If you don't go off road, other than backing down a slip, and you don't need 7 seats, the X5 is a better tarmac based tug than a Disco IMHO. Not had much to do with RRS, but basically the same underneath.
My F-in-Law is on his 3rd Disco, they are now superb to drive, but still prone to the odd issue. The latest one barfed it's power steering fluid over his drive recently.
I've previously had 4 BMs back to back, an air suspension bag going pop is the only failure that I can recall.
At 2011 the warranty is now become a piece of paper for recycling, so the occasional LR fault could really hurt in the wallet dept.
