2002 Land Rover Freelander TD4 S 5 door 2.0L turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Liked this car, but expensive to repair
Back seat, when folded flat, would not return to upright.
Fuel injector failure.
Electric window winder failure.
Another electric window winder failure.
Another fuel injector failure.
Third electric window winder failure.
Clutch failure at 98.000.
Needed a complete rear light assembly, for the sake of a replacement indicator bulb.
Did actually like this car, and it towed my caravan with ease.
Expensive to repair, when things go wrong.
Rear seat assembly replaced under warranty eventually, after the dealer supplied the wrong part three times.
An injector failed, and left us needing a tow in. Cost to me, over £400.
The electric windows start to fail; to replace these, it will cost you around £150 each for your passenger doors. If the one on the back door goes, that will set you back over £200.
Another injector cost me over £300 when I broke a contact while replacing an indicator bulb. No problem thinks I, just get another bulb holder?.
Sorry sir, we don't sell bulb holders... but we can sell you a complete light... Oh and that will be around £50.
Now I don't have a problem replacing the clutch at 98,000 miles. What I do have is a problem with the cost of doing so. £1,700 at the dealers, or £1.500 at a 4-4 repairers.
My TD4, has now been sold. I won't be buying another one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I agree. I bought a 2002 Land Rover Freelander in KY in 2005. This has been nothing but a headache. I replaced the transmission/engine/heater coil. The coil was causing coolant to be dumped into the floorboard, and now the SRS light will not go off.
I am active duty military, just stationed in Germany, and I can't even pass their vehicle inspection because of the SRS light. I am forced to go to the dealer and pay their astronomical prices. Do not buy, and I wish I could join a group of people with a good attorney to do a class action against this manufacturer.
Any suggestions on the SRS light?
My advice: Run the other way screaming if you are thinking of buying this vehicle.
