2005 Land Rover Freelander SE 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
I love my Freelander, but damn reliability sucks! Brakes and rotors $500.00 every 6 months. Oil changes $120.00. Car is a gas guzzler add another $75.00 a wk. Come on Landrover, it's a Freelander not a range Rover and a regular station won't touch them. My car had anti freeze smell from vents. They say reservoir, I say heater core cover up. Sunroof replaced 2 times. Car towed in twice once ignition switch, second coils. Strange clicking from dash sounds electrical (they cant duplicate, "anyone have an idea?) they told me they are having a ton of problems with this vehicle and not to let my warranty runn out. I'm thinking of paying it off and selling it. Lately I sell my cars every two yrs for lemons.
Love the drive could use more pep. Interior cabin is cool.. People complain of the cup holders in dash. I don't mind. I have the LR3 on Loanership, quite cumbersome. I'm getting a Lexus next! Sorry TATA!
