2002 Land Rover Freelander HSE 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
What was Land Rover thinking?! I have replaced the engine, transmission, heater core, thermostat, exhaust plenum, rear window actuator (twice) and have had my car in the shop longer than I've been able to drive it! Land Rover will not take responsibility for this mistake of a vehicle. I was told the engine broke because the valves bent. They built the engine with "Interference valves" meaning they do interfere. If they are slightly off, the pistons will smash into them, causing them to brake- causing you to need a new engine. I only have 60,000 miles on mine and have spen more repairing it than I owe on it. Does anyone know of any class action lawsuits? Because I am on board.
navigation, disc changer, all wheel drive
New mechanical system! New engine, tranny, and all parts conncected. New wiring and electric would be nice, too.
