2000 Land Rover Freelander 1.8 from Australia and New Zealand
The worst car ever built
Original owners head gasket blew at 50,000 kms.
My head gasket blew at 97,000 kms.
Clutch pedal sprang out at 95,000 kms for the first time.
Engine mounts broke and came loose at 95,000.
Constant vibration at 60 km per hour.
Fork in gearbox broke at 113,000 kms causing clutch arm to break. Entire new clutch plate also put in.
Rear window goes down by itself with no-one in the car.
Multiple engine leaks.
Fuel pump stopped at 110,000 kms and was replaced immediately by a brand new faulty one, which stopped working within an hour while I was in the middle of nowhere.
This is the biggest lemon I have ever seen. It has cost me over $7,000 in repairs alone plus expensive services. When it goes it is great to drive and looks fantastic; however it really is a terrible car. Land Rover should be ashamed that they ever put this car on the road. A car that has only done 113,000 kms should never have this many problems. What a piece of junk. Just traded it for $5,000. I feel sorry for whoever buys it next.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
