Terrible engine and transmission
By dukesush on


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


Had to replace the engine then required major transmission repairs. (@ 120,000kms ) Incredibly expensive to maintain in western Canada. When running well it as a nice ride and very capable 4x4. Too bad about the terrible engine and transmission design. Was happy to get my money back out of it due to decent resale value.

I loved having this car, but be ready for some expensive repairs down the road. I had two engines in 4 years, window motors, muffler...etc. I easily put how much I bought for into repairs while I had it. Best of luck with your landrover experience. I wish I could still have mine.
