Piece of Junk with a Fancy Cover
By Kathryn on
2002 Land Rover Freelander S 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
At 61,000 miles, I had to replace the heating matrix for $2100 (car broke down on side of road). At 67,488 miles, I had a manifold issue that (luckily) was replaced under the CA emissions warranty, or I would have paid $1700 (almost broke down). Now, at 70, 777 miles, my timing belt busted (broke down on side of road) and Land Rover is saying that, despite their scheduled maintenance at 72,000 when they replace the belt, it's my problem - regardless of the fact the belt busted before the company- mandated replacement mileage. Two tow- truck drivers have told me that they love people who own these cars. They make their biggest profits off Land Rover owners. Do not waste your money.
It's comfortable on the inside and the gas tank is small for an SUV.
Land Rover, make a car that lasts. I suppose you don't because you have guaranteed profits from continued repairs. You'll never get my business again. Ever.
