2004 Land Rover Freelander SE 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)


Purchased in 2007 this 2004 model had done only 15,000 miles. The first thing to go wrong was a fuel pump at 15,500 miles. The lr dealer did not want to know neither did lr head office. Then the window regulators went within weeks in the back. Finally, having serviced the car every six months and at 35,000 miles the turbo went. The workshop said I should use an lr new turbo due to the quality so I laughed and said I had had it with lr quality. I found an independent shop reconditioning turbos and got one for another workshop to fit. That's $2500 instead of $3300 at the dealers. So about half the car value retail and close to trade in prices.

Best Features

space height performance economy

Worst Features

build it better. use quality components remember used parts are pointless when priced at new prestige car levels. they are for old cars because customers couldn't afford them new so the parts have to be relevant

I did not know the (2.5L 6cyl 5A) had a turbo on it? Your post indicated the turbo went out. Did/does it have a turbo?
