“Lemon from hell!!!”

Written on: 17/06/2013

Bought 2003 Free lander se3 new. Countless electrical problems, mainly minor blows fuses regularly. Rear main seal had to be replaced around 20,000 miles. Dealership had nerve enough to ask if I wanted new oil (at a charge)when the RMS was replaced. Rear window gasket leaks and destroyed subwoofer and rusted metal in rear cargo area. Replaced coolant reservoir twice. Replaced coolant fittings and hoses. Thermostat went bad and engine blew head gaskets at 70,000 miles. Thought I would drive this vehicle for twenty plus years. Looks like I will just be stuck with it for that long. A total waste of time money. Should have bought another jeep, but was nostalgic over the land rovers once great reputation. Wish I had known Ford had acquired LR. Ford makes great vehicles, they did not manage their foreign brands very well at all.
