2001 Land Rover Freelander ES 2.5 V6
Over engineered and poorly made, don't buy one
Butterflies in the inlet manifold fell out and rattled around the intake.
Water pump blew twice; 14 hours labour each time, plus the cost of the pump.
Constant water loss; ended up replacing all the plumbing.
Right rear wheel bearing kept wearing out. Found the hub was out of round. Then all other wheel bearings went.
Drive shaft universals wore out.
This car has 4 cambelts! All needed replacing.
This is a good looking, comfortable SUV, and is great while it is working.
It drives well on the road, and has good off road capability.
Sluggish performance matched with poor fuel economy.
The old 1970's & 80's Land Rovers were great! What happened?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
