2002 Land Rover Freelander SE 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
this is my 2nd freelander, both 2002
models. 1st lasted 600 miles, computer
malfunctioned. dealer had it over 25
days, could not fix it, even with help
from mfr. after a hassle with
maryland and getting a lawyer
involved, i got a new replacement
vehicle. no problems with it until it
hit 15,000 miles. computer
malfunctioned. same as before. dealer
got it fixed this time in a week,
after a lot of effort to locate a
replacement computer on their part.
picked it up and went immediately to
trade it in on a different car. cannot
count on it's reliability. gave
absolutely no warning before it
malfunctioned. have complained to
landrover. they have lost a
handling, comfort, rugged build, rear
window opens down, ease of fold up
rear seats for added cargo space.
style and tight steering
landrover needs to be more reliable
with computers. as they go "stupid"
