Need opinions on 2001 Land Rover Freelander

Postby hellfire » Sun Oct 26, 2008 9:08 pm

My girlfriend has been looking to upgrade from a sporty low hatch back to a softroader/small 4x4

After looking at a few cars we've found a really good condition Land Rover Freelander.

It's a 2001 model 2.5l V6 tiptronic auto. Has no drive line noise that I can pick out, plenty of power to get it moving and all leather interior. I had a decent look underneath and it all looks factory, no scrapes/dents underneath all in good order.

We're getting it at a good price with 2 years warranty and good trade in value.

Just wondering if these are any good, haven't heard much about them or seen many on the roads.

Thanks

do not do it, possibly the worst 4wd/car ever made

you dont see many on the roads, because once the IRD's go, they cost a kidney to fix

Agree with The Dude - not an easy car to live with, parts are scarce & expensive, electonics are a bit dodgey and the interior trim is not well attached

Of course this is based on the experience of only one person (a lady) I know who had one, but it was not an experiece she enjoyed

Alright, we got a better deal out of them and because of my concern with parts etc they offered a 3 year warranty, which we can change to 5 year warranty for $305.

Girlfriend got the car today, whats done is done it's her heap to deal with now :D Any car can have failures and problems, there are just too many variables to pin it just on the make of the car.
