2005 Land Rover Freelander SE 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)


At the beginning of this year, my 2005 Freelander with less than 50,000 miles started overheating. They replaced head gasket #4. They had the car for 2 weeks. Then, less than 2 months later, it lost power going up hills, they replaced head gasket #2 (they had the car another 2 weeks). Then, a month after that, the radio stayed on when I turned the car off. They changed out some electrical thing, (they had the car for a week). Approximately 1 month later the car was overheating again, it was head gasket #1. They decided to replace the engine (they had the car 5 weeks). Last week my new engine was leaking oil, faulty oil gasket in the new engine. (They had the car 1 week). Craziness..

Best Features

Heated seat. I love the seat heater.

Worst Features

Faster pick up, more comfortable seats, more driver leg room, more reliable, need I go on?
