After 5 and a half years, My 2002 SE V6 Jatco Freelander is basically falling apart. This started to happen as soon as the rear wheels cleared the LR dealers lot on that fateful 12/31/01 sunny afternoon.
Innumerable and systematic quality issues make this modern day dinosaur an automotive flop, right of there with an Edsel, one Ford Granada and the venerable AMC vehicles when thing used to go wrong. At Land Rover they still do, and in a rather alarming way.
Poor parts quality and minimalistic design on everything other than the structure and suspension, makes this unfortunate Euro SUV and sad reminder of what a glossy brochure can do.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
