1997 Land Rover Discovery 4 litre gas from North America
The front seats were designed by Satan. They are too short in the lower area, providing no leg support. Sciatica pains abound. The cupholder was designed for European and not America (ie Snapple; Big Gulp) containers. The lighter socket is 1mm too large for most car phone plugs. Plugs fall out..
Great unstoppable vehicle. Will boldly go where no vehicle has gone before, at a great price. Typical 1980's British build quality and (lack of) attention to the little details. I test drove the 1999 Disco II; many errors were attended to. I do love to take this car skiing, though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I am looking for a socket adapter for our 1996 Discovery. We've been frustrated by the same item pointed out in this review - the lighter socket (which I thought was just worn) is about 1mm too large for most American appliances; cell phones, iPod chargers, etc. Can anyone point me to a good source to rectify this problem?

Replace your socket with one bought @ a local car store or walmart for 7.99.
Are you helpless???
