Bought a 3 door hard back that was just over a year old & 8k or so miles on it in jan 2003. Now its 2010, still got it, bought a soft top for the summer which is good fun going to the beach. Tow a boat a lot with it. Now going past 235k miles. Only problem had is fuel pump over front left wing. replaced it twiced. self serviced not to regularily.
Cant recommend these vehicles enough.

I've had my Freelander 2.0TD4 SE Hardback (facelifted 2004 model) for getting on 7 years now and it has exceeded my expectations in almost every aspect. Let's face it, when you buy a vehicle like this you don't expect it to get 60mpg and 0-60mph in 6 seconds or be decked out like a Mercedes Benz. There have been a few niggles but I expect this with most cars. If you look after the vehicle, don't thrash it around, and have it properly serviced each year it should give you years of...

Nice car but the new Land Rovers now are not as reliable as they were, and you not only need to work out your budget to buy one but for all the things that will probably go wrong! (read more)

This is my second Freelander. My earlier 2 litre diesel had the L series Rover engine, and the TD4 is a vast improvement.
With a consistent 40 MPG, and pleasant drive, I would recommend them.
Mine is a 'Kalahari' edition, so I benefit from such goodies as, Air con, 17" alloys, half leather seats and 6 CD autochanger.
If you contemplate buying one, i would advise you to look for a high spec model.
It makes a huge difference to the driving standard of the vehicle and you will easily re coup... (read more)

Having never owned a 4x4 I am very impressed by the performance, economy and overall ability of the Land Rover Freelander .
The only surprise I found was when I came to tax it (£107 for 6 mths), far more expensive than some old smokers on the road for a certainly more economical car! (read more)

I bought a 2000 X plate 1 year old Land Rover Freelander TD4 around 5 years ago and put 70,000 miles on it in 5 years. I cannot recommend these vehicles enough. Cheap to service and run with all the bells and whistles. I was going to buy another but when I looked at the interior of the newer version I was horrified. It's all cheap plastic and looks it. I bought a Discovery instead. (read more)

We bought this Land Rover Freelander 2.0 TD4 GS 4x4 for the wife as she works in quite a remote location which can be really bad in winter. It's big with plenty of room for 3 in the back although the boot is quite small and access isn't easy to it thanks to the parcel shelf getting in your way (compared to a hatchback when it lifts up!)
The economy is good, an ecu remap has taken power from 112hp to around the 130 mark and it now behaves like a 'normal' car (0-60 11 seconds)
Visibility is... (read more)
