Reliability, no engine or transmission oil leaks even at 78000miles, good for towing, comfortable driving position.
Judder from windscreen wiper mechanism.
Bought this Land Rover Freelander May 2005, I have placed 2 prevoius reviews this is an up date. ECU remap was worth while, still not sure of actual mpg increase, at a guess it's around 10% better.
Just had a slight glitch - power went down dramatically and loads of black smoke from exhaust under acceleration. I was thinking big money, ECU or turbo or something equally as complicated. Found problem to be a split in rubber elbow at front near side of induction manifold and the turbo was pumping air through the split into the engine comparment, screwdriver, 10 minutes and a new hose and back to perfect again.
