Discovery 3's suddenly looking better as an enthusiast vehicle

Wow, high mileage Discovery 3s are now selling in the mid-$20,000 range, putting them at or close to the point when you'd consider one as an off-road tourer, when the odd scratch and scuff won't matter so much. True, it's packed with electronics just waiting to go wrong on a cold and damp trip, but the model's overall reliability has turned out to be way better than the original Disco or Disco 2. The lower-priced ones will almost always be 4.4 litre V8s; the desirable TDV6 diesel attracts a premium. 4wdNewz drove the diesel shown here back in 2005 and it's alive and well today with almost 140,000km on the clock.
