2003 Land Rover Freelander S 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
Endless expensive electrical and mechanical failures. The engine however is well known for it's self-destructive tendency and poor design. (It costs over $800 to replace a thermostat O-ring) The cylinder sleeves tend to slip sending coolant into the oil. The engine is no longer made and parts are extremely expensive. There are 2 catalytic converters (about $1000 each)
When it actually ran it was quiet, comfortable and handled nicely.
It would be an improvement if Land Rover would stand by their products... they obviously have no pride in either their design abilities or their workmanship.
