Owner's Handbook

This handbook, together with the Passport to Service book, provides information you will need to derive maximum pleasure from owning and driving your new vehicle.

For your convenience, the handbook is divided into sections, each dealing with a particular aspect of driving or caring for the vehicle. These are listed on the contents page and you will find it worthwhile to take a little time to read each one, and get to know your Discovery as soon as you possibly can. The more you understand before you drive, the greater the satisfaction once you are seated behind the steering wheel.

IMPORTANT

The specification of each vehicle will vary according to territorial requirements and also from model to model within the vehicle range. Some of the information published in this handbook, therefore, may not apply to your particular vehicle.

Land Rover operates a policy of constant product improvement and therefore reserves the right to change specifications without notice at any time. Whilst every effort is made to ensure complete accuracy of the information in this handbook, no liabilities for inaccuracies or the consequences thereof can be accepted by the manufacturer or the dealer, except in respect of personal injury caused by the negligence of the manufacturer or the dealer.

Introduction

REPORTING SAFETY DEFECTS

If you believe that your vehicle has a defect which could cause a crash, or could cause injury or death, you should immediately inform the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in addition to notifying Land Rover North America Inc.

If NHTSA receives similar complaints, it may open an investigation and if it finds that a safety defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy campaign.

However, NHTSA cannot become involved in individual problems between you, your retailer or Land Rover North America.

To contact NHTSA, you may either call the Auto Safety HOTLINE toll free at 1-800-424-9393 (or 202-366-0123 in the Washington, D.C. area) or write to: NHTSA, U.S. Department of Transportation, Washington, DC 20590. You can also obtain other information about motor vehicle safety from the HOTLINE.

BEFORE YOU DRIVE

Your Discovery Series II has a higher ground clearance and hence, a higher centre of gravity than ordinary passenger cars, to enable the vehicle to perform in a wide variety of off-road applications. An advantage of the higher ground clearance is a better view of the road allowing you to anticipate problems.

The vehicle is not designed for cornering at the same speed as conventional passenger cars any more than a low slung sports car is designed to perform satisfactorily under off-road conditions. If at all possible, avoid sharp turns or abrupt manoeuvres. As with other vehicles of this type, failure to operate the Discovery correctly may result in loss of control or vehicle rollover. For important safety information, be sure to read the ‘On-Road’ and ‘Off-Road’ driving guidelines given later in this handbook.

Introduction

WARNINGS IN THIS HANDBOOK

WARNING

Safety warnings are included in this handbook. These indicate a procedure which must be followed precisely in order to avoid the possibility of personal injury or serious damage to the vehicle.

CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 WARNING

WARNING

Engine exhaust, some of its constituents and certain vehicle components contain or emit chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

SYMBOLS USED

The following symbols used within the handbook call your attention to specific types of information.

This recycling symbol identifies items that must be disposed of safely in order to

prevent unnecessary damage to the environment.

This symbol identifies features that can be adjusted or disabled/enabled by a Land

Rover retailer

*An asterisk appearing within the text, identifies features or items of equipment that are either optional, or are only fitted to some vehicles in the model range.

PASSPORT TO SERVICE

The Passport to Service book included in your literature pack contains important vehicle identification information, details of your entitlement under the terms of the Land Rover warranty, as well as useful consumer advice.

Most important of all, however, is the section on maintenance. This outlines the servicing requirements for your vehicle and also includes the First Service Voucher, and the service record slips, which the retailer should sign and stamp to certify the routine services have been carried out at the recommended intervals.

WARNING LABELS ATTACHED TO THE VEHICLE

Warning labels attached to your vehicle bearing this symbol mean: DO NOT touch or adjust components until you have read the relevant instructions in the handbook.

Introduction

ANTI-THEFT PRECAUTIONS

While it may be difficult to deter the ‘professional’ car thief, the majority of thefts are carried out by unskilled opportunists. Therefore, take vehicle security very seriously and ALWAYS adopt this simple ‘four point’ drill whenever you leave your vehicle - even for just a few minutes:

1.Fully close all the windows (and the sunroof).

2.Remove your valuable belongings (or hide them out of sight).

3.Remove the starter key.

4.Superlock the vehicle using the remote handset.

Thieves are attracted by ‘vulnerable’ vehicles. Even if you have followed the ‘four point’ drill, there is still much you can do to make your vehicle a less inviting target.

BE SAFE - NOT SORRY!

Park where your vehicle can be easily seen by householders and passers-by.

At night, park in well lit areas and avoid deserted or dimly-lit side streets.

NEVER leave the keys in the vehicle.

Do not keep important documents (or spare keys) in the vehicle - these are a real bonus for the thief.

IN AN EMERGENCY

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Remember the breakdown safety code

If a breakdown occurs while travelling:

Wherever possible, consistent with road safety and traffic conditions, the vehicle should be moved off the main thoroughfare, preferably onto the shoulder as far as possible. If a breakdown occurs on a motorway, pull well over to the inside of the hard shoulder.

Switch on hazard lights.

If possible, position a warning triangle or a flashing amber light at an appropriate distance from the vehicle to warn other traffic of the breakdown, (note the legal requirements of some areas).

Consider evacuating passengers through the doors facing away from traffic, to a safe area away from the vehicle as a precaution in case your Discovery is accidentally struck by another vehicle.

Locks & Alarm

KEYS AND HANDSETS

You have been supplied with two remote handsets with integral keys which operate all locks.

The key number is stamped on a tag attached to the key ring. Check that the key number has been entered in the space provided on your Security card.

If required, additional handsets can be programmed into the system by your dealer.

If the remote handset is lost, contact a Land Rover dealer, who can supply replacement units.

NOTE: Keep the security card and the spare handset in a safe place - NOT IN THE VEHICLE!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

The handset complies with part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following conditions:

This device may not cause harmful interference.

This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. This applies to both alarm receivers and handset transmitters.

Any changes or modifications to the handset not expressly approved by the manufacturer or Land Rover North America could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.

Transmitter FCC ID: N5FVALTX3

Receiver FCC ID: N5VALTR3

ALARM SYSTEM

All Discovery vehicles are fitted with a sophisticated electronic anti-theft alarm system. Some vehicles are equipped with a number of additional security features, some of which are selectable options and some are standard features. In order to ensure maximum security and operating convenience, you are strongly advised to gain a full understanding of the features and alternatives available, by thoroughly reading this section of the handbook.

Using the remote handset

H2467

While it is not necessary to point the handset at the vehicle, the handset must be within range of the vehicle when a button is pressed. Note that the operating range may vary depending upon handset battery condition and may sometimes be limited by physical and geographical factors beyond your control. From a security point of view, it may not be wise to unlock unless you are within a few feet of the vehicle.
