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


We recently helped purchase this vehicle for our son for college.
We wish we would have read these reviews first.
We had the vehicle a week, and it overheated.
Our son never has had the chance to drive it, but now has a car payment - and repair costs worth twice the cost of the vehicle.
The thermostat repair is over $900, the oxygen sensors $1100, and now the head gasket and sleeve repair, over $7500.
Needless to say, the vehicle cost $6500, and now the repairs have more than doubled that.

I have contacted multiple class action lawyers today. Hopefully something can come of this, and this can ber rectified!

Best Features

Fun to drive!

Worst Features

Engine cooling system, and transer of coolant to oil. Head gasket and sleeve problems. I understand the original European engine which is diesel is awesome and runs forever, but that modifications have been made to bring it to America, and a gas engine replaced the diesel.
