    My car

    Bought the car new in October 2014. Iv'e covered just under 7000 miles so far and the car has been faultless. I love the build quality, ride comfort is excellent, plenty of power from the SD4 engine, space is good in the rear and the boot is fine for 2 dogs in a dog box. The off road ability is brilliant, in the snow this winter it gave me complete confidence. The only slight drawback is the fuel consumption but it is a big heavy car and it is an auto.

    My car

    This is an update on my review from November of last year. After only 10-11 months and 25,000 miles, my Freelander 2 is now being traded in and replaced, through no fault of its own. I now need more space and as it (and its 2 Freelander predecessors) have been brilliant, it's going to be a Discovery 4. The only changes to my star rating from last time have been to the running costs as, while it continues to only return between 28 and 32mpg, it costs me very little more then diesel. I've only just replaced the first set of tyres at 33,250 miles (I bought it with 8,800 miles on the clock) and they were still good for another 1,000 to 2,000 miles. A great car and hope I don't regret parting with it!

    Good stuff: you sit high, seats are very comfortable, stereo (825 watts) quite sufficient for Classic FM, large door mirrors, plently of gadgets, adequately fast, handles well (even round corners - don't agree with the What Car report), wind noise really isn't too bad and you feel very safe in a car that can tackle most road or off-road conditions.

    Bad stuff: Fuel consumption is far worse that estimated, it is a large car so be careful, the boot is fine for two people but for a family of 4 you need to look at an estate, it doesn't come with a spare tyre just some sort of inflatable pump that looks like it should be attached to Darth Vader.

    My car

    What a disappointing car and a disappointing Land Rover dealer. This was my fourth Land Rover and it and the dealer went against the image Land Rover would like to project. The car was purchased new in June 2013. A horrible gearbox, under powered with inadequate forward lighting, a farm tractor could easily beat it from a standing start such as at road junctions and traffic lights. The pluses were a comfortable ride with superb off-road ability, that was all.

    The experience started with the Land Rover dealer's printer being down on my first visit so I was unable to get a printed quote. When I called to pick-up the car I had to sign for it for it before seeing it. On seeing it for the first time I noticed that some of the options I had ordered were not fitted and was told that that was the car that I had just signed for.

    I have now, some 6 months later, traded it in, losing several thousand pounds in the process, and now have a Freelander 2 SD GS with front fog lights and headlamp washers and am so far delighted with the more powerful engine and auto gearbox.
