Rear window failed and fixed by LandRover who neglected to cable tie the wiring out of the way to allow clearance for lowering of window - now Heater element… Read Full Review

I bought a 74000 mile 2.5 gs in green with sidesteps and 17" alloys in green, i saw it and thought it looked lovely so it was an impulse buy, it hasnt gone wrong but anyone looking to buy this particular model should be aware of a few issues,firstly the seats are quite small and one feels 'perched' on them the boot is really quite small and th side opening tailgate requires a lot of room to open fully, the auto box is very sluggish to change down ( giving all or nothing acceleration) but by far… Read Full Review

It's a very nice car, but as with all V6's if it goes wrong it gets expensive. A cylinder head gasket (you have two on a V engine!) won't leave much change from £1,800 and a window motor about £150. Still a good buy though as it is quick without being flashy. It has car saloon performance with off road capability… Read Full Review

The Freelander is definitely a great car but avoid the petrol models because of a design flaw which makes the engines fail - go for a TD4 manual as the Auto box costs a bomb to repair.
If I had bought a diesel I would still have it because it truly is a great car… Read Full Review

I sold Land Rover for 2 years and have owned 2 of them. The first caught fire. I obviously love it if I bought a second one. Keep in mind that I got it cheap and have it serviced for less. But - if you're buying a small SUV this is the only one to get if you can afford it. The features, build, and ability are great, and I'd rather get into an accident in this than in any other small SUV… Read Full Review

Good reliabilty until head gasket blew, though this was a design fault Landrover would only pay for parts (less than £200) leaving me with a bill for £750 labour. I will never buy a Landrover again… Read Full Review

I am in the process of selling a nearly three year old Landrover Freelander 2.5l V6 ES with 16500 on the clock and I will be lucky to get £11000px. So it has cost me approx £4500 per year to drive this vehicle.
Also at about 15000 miles a new engine had to be fitted, due I have recently been informed to a head gasket problem. A Land Rover garage said that they had done 5 in the last month, so it appears to be a major problem. Never again… Read Full Review

I bought a V6 ES Land Rover Freelander a year ago in 2001(my second freelander) and have had excellent service from it. No unplanned visits to the garage. Yes it can be thirsty if you put your foot down but i can get 25mpg on a motorway at about 55 - 60 mph and using cruise control. (Frankly anyone who complains about its thirst has, i suspect, bought outside their budget!).
I have found my V6 engine to be reliable and provides power enough for the car, the air con. and the lights - including… Read Full Review

You will need to change the suspension. It is too soft, and vehicle is dangerous on road.
Even 170 bhp, the car is really lazy, it and consume goes till 14 l/100 Km as medium
In less than a year (guarantee limit) it has been necessary to repair a lot of expensive parts
Post-selling service not accurate because of lack of spare-parts
IS it bad luck?

I bought mine new this week and am very happy with the V6 package. Plenty of power and the g'box is outstanding. Looks great and handles very well on road/trails. Expensive but am expecting good build quality and reliability… Read Full Review
