WARNINGS IN THIS HANDBOOK
Your Discovery has a higher ground clearance and hence, a higher center 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.
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.
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 maneuvers. 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.
