Well, where do I start. This car has been in and out of the garage since I got it.
The most recent fault is that the head gasket has blown. The head itself is also being sent back to Land Rover to check if it is not porous!
Three months ago I had to have a prop shaft bearing replaced. Admittedly it was not the same bearing that was replaced nine months ago!
The clutch needed replacing after 21,000 miles, and may I add that I haven't had a clutch replaced on any of my other cars in over 30 years of driving.
The servo-steering unit had to be replaced before the car had reached 15,000 miles.
There are many other instances of repairs, but I honestly forget what they all were.
The car has cost over £4,000 within the last year alone, and I will be changing it very shortly. For obvious reasons, I don't want another Land Rover for the rest of my life.
The Free Lander is a very pretty car.
It is responsive, and it handles very well.
The interior is very comfortable, and is a joy.
However, its reliability is shocking. I have heard from other sources that it is not my car alone which has faults, but many other owners face the same problems.
