2001 Land Rover Freelander ES TD 2.0 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Not a good plan to buy a 2001 Freelander
Air con gone, electrics gone - windows (back doors twice), sunroof, door mechanisms (back doors).
Brakes, brakes and more brakes.
Crank shaft, fuel pump, and loads of stuff I can't remember now; there's so much.
Power assisted steering gone, VCU unit problems
Bought this car when it was approx 3 years old (26k miles), and loved, loved, loved it for the next 70k miles.
Since it passed 100k miles, it seems like it's never out of the garage.
Fuel economy is not good at about 28mpg. €3.5k in repairs spent in past two years, and it's back in the garage again. And I believe that this engine was one of the better ones!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
