Land Rover Discovery Sport - 1 Month Driving Test Review / ConsumerWatch / Motoring

By: N_Walayat

This is my review of driving a Land Rover Discovery Sport over 1 month, of what to expect if your considering buying one as it does take a few weeks of driving before one is fully aware of the cars good and bad points, such as the pretty feeble plastic trim that tends to surround Discovery Sports, the knocking sound that many experience again from poor quality trim. So whilst the Discovery Sport looks great and general drives well, in many respects my 11 year old Zafira was actually better i.e. space for the back two seats! And what's worse of all is you will all likely fall for Land Rovers sales pitch of the Discovery Sport doing 53.3mpg which is not going to happen given real world driving. So watch my most recent video of buying and owning a Land Rover Discovery Sport, where this HSE Black was bought from Hunters in Chester.

For it takes at least a couple of weeks before one is fully aware of what one needs to know BEFORE one buys one as the various flaws only become apparent after real world use, such as the pretty feeble plastic trim that tends to surround Discovery Sports, the knocking sound that many experience again from poor quality trim for though the Discovery Sport looks great and general drives well, in many respects my 11 year old Zafira was better! And what's worse of all is Land Rovers sales pitch of 53mpg fuel economy that in no way matches the reality of real world driving experience as my latest video in this buying and owning a Land Rover series illustrates.

Best Time / Month to Buy a Used Car From a UK Dealer / ConsumerWatch / Motoring

By: Nadeem_Walayat

So far 2017 has not proved to be a productive year in terms of my traditional market analysis i.e. stocks, commodities and derivatives, as I tend to analyse that which grabs my attention rather than following a pre-set schedule, and for this year my attention has been on non traditional markets such as politics, where we had BrExit rammed down our throats to exhaustion point, culminating in the June 8th election disaster and its aftermath. Nevertheless my market analysis has continued this year, unfortunately it's been in non traditional markets such as the local city housing markets rather than national or international, and in this analysis of the UK near new Used car market of 2017 so as determine the best time of year to buy a Used Car of less than 3 years age from a UK dealer.
