What was I thinking?
By Ana on
2003 Land Rover Freelander S 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
Thought Landrover and Range Rover were reliable vehicles until purchasing my Freelander.What a mistake! After the 5th month of driving it I was left stranded. The thing just completely shut down! Come to find out it was the fuel system. The thing sat at the mechanics for two months, until the part came in from the Dealer in Albuquerque. The fuel pump cost $595! The recall for the fuel system came in August so off to the Dealership we went! & they said the timing belts need replacing (cost: $1800 - it has three). The oil changes we do ourselves for $65 everytime! Or $100 if you can find a decent place that'll do it. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS VEHICLE! Unless you like to throw away your money!
The all-wheel drive comes in handy during ice and snow storms.
