2004 Land Rover Freelander HSE 2.5L Gasoline
Disappointing outcome to an exciting beginning
At 68000km I started having overheating issues.
At 71000 km I needed to replace the engine due to a coolant leak and overheating. After sending a letter to LR they conceded and paid for the engine ($7500.00 cdn), but I still needed to cover Labour ($1700.00).
At 79500 my rear passenger side window popped from its track and no longer works.
At 79000 km, we noticed coolant starting to disappear again.
I'm getting rid of it as soon as I find a suitable alternative.
The vehicle handles well and still looks brand new, but I'm very disappointed that a "high end" vehicle like the LR has documented problems such as coolant leaks into the engine.
My next options for a SUV/Truck will be Ford, Toyota, Nissan or Mazda.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
