2003 Land Rover Freelander S 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

I purchased this vehicle certified December of 2006 and I've had nothing but problems. First, I had to have the ball bearing replaced (under warranty $3,000). Then the engine ran hot 3x's, each time the coolant had run out and had to be replaced. The 4th time I had to take it in due to the coolant again, it turned out that I needed a new engine! Thank God for warranties ($7,000). Now it's in the shop again because the gasket needs replacing. I spoke with a Land Rover mechanic that told me to get rid of it. He also said that there have been several problems with the Freelander in general. Further, he said that I will continue to have problems that are expensive if I keep it.

Favorite Features

Works very well in the snow. I live in Cleveland, Ohio where there are horrible winters and this truck maneuvers very well.

Suggested Improvements

The engine needs some serious, serious work.
