2002 Land Rover Freelander HSE from North America
This vehicle is a LEMON
The sunroof has been replaced twice.
The radio has broken three/four times. It was actually broken before I bought it.
One window broke while down.
The vehicle has trouble shifting from first to second gear which the service center can't seem to fix.
I was told I had to get new brake pads and new rooters after just 20,000 miles. The price was outrageous and I got resurfaced rooters not replacements.
The 24,000 mile service is a $400 oil change that you have to leave the car for two days to get completed. Yet somehow that money doesn't cover new wiper blades.
A simple car wash seems to cause the radio to malfunction, I don't know if it's from the water what.
You have to wait days or weeks for an appointment with service. when you do get an appointment they make you wait a long time to get the problem written up. Even a simple service call will take days to fix.
One time they even lost my car on their lot for over an hour.
The service waiting room was dirty. Frequently the car comes back dirtier then when you left it. One car wash they gave my vehicle was hardly more than a damp cloth rubbing the dust around which cause huge permanant swirls in the paint. When the sunroof was replaces my interior was covered in grease that was rubbed into the grain on the leather.
When I took my car in to get the radio fixed, I was told I was replaced. However it wasn't. It had the same radio code as before. The service employees where extremely rude. Without a doubt the rudest person I have ever had to deal with ever.
I now have to take my car far away to get a decent service center.
At one point I was given a handful of fuses by a service manager for the car since they so frequently blew out.
The warranty length is very short which is a major concern since it has problems just about monthly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
