Love, love, love the disco as a tow car! We're on our second disco now, it's a 2005 td5 auto and it tows anything you car to put behind it. the disco is my other half's car and I drive a Freelander which we have also towed with but the disco is better.

they are a great towcar ,but come with a few drawbacks ,
heavy fuel consumption
high tax bracket
high insurance premiums
and on the newer models high service ,parts and repair parts .(older models are beter in this respect)
unless your towing a massive twin axle caravan there are far better tow cars out there

hi i have a 2003 td5 that i have had from new in that time we have been to spain three times toured france more times than i can remember not to mention all over GB from cornwall to scotland and i can say with my hand on my heart ( or wallet if you wish ! ) that it has never let me down and it averages 28mpg towing it just seems not to notice that it is towing !

I wish that I hadn't sold my 300Tdi and replaced it with the awful Auto Td5..... fuel consumption was abysmal..... lots more to go wrong...... and it did.

Kia Sorento ...... much more cost effective
