1999 Land Rover Freelander TD 2.0 turbo diesel from Australia and New Zealand
A genuine dissappointment and lemon
Over heating at 80,000, 100,000, 120,000
Heater broke down after one winter.
Motor lost oil and water. Blew Head.
Repaired and lasted 60km before repeat.
Oil leaks from 60,000km.
CD player always broke down/permanent.
Loss of power, but dealer says not true.
Temp gauge still on high after $5,000 repairs.
Tyres wear unevenly.
Although serviced throughout, the dealer now places all the blame firmly on me. Even after a total motor rebuild which lasted just 60km the dealer said the second break down was due to my driving the car when it over heated. They are quite frankly hiding the truth about the unreliability and problems of this car. After the second rebuild, this car is slow and sluggish, which the dealer denies.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
