    My car

    Just over seven months into ownership so thought I'd add to my earlier review.Have covered 8,000 miles since we bought this car including four 300 mile round trips to Cornwall and three to the Midlands.Have no major gripes,car copes very well on long journeys,unlike around town where we find the constant gear changing a little heavy and tiresome.Niggles are the same old issues - sunroof sometimes won't shut properly,the cabin constantly creaks and rattles,and its loadspace is a little disappointing.Recently had a service-DO NOT take it to Landrover-they wanted £400.We paid £368 for a full service with discs+pads and an engine flush from Nationwide Autocentre.It's not that we're unhappy with the Freelander it can be a joy to drive in all conditions, but given the choice I would go for a conventional estate over this car.

    My car

    2005 model Owned now for 6 months - cannot fault it - extremely comfortable, feels low geared at times and a little noisy when accelerating but other than that no reliability/quality problems. What I like is that this car can bring a smile to your face when you are out in it.

    My car

    I bought my 52 reg Freelander TD4 ES new in September 2002. We have been very pleased with the service we have received from the different Land Rover dealerships over the past six years. However once the car was out of warrenty I always used an independent for MOT's and serviceing. The car returned around 30mpg towing and early 40s solo on a run. The car was totally reliable over the 52000 miles of our ownership. This was our second Land Rover and we have placed an order for a new Freelander 11 from 1st September. I had no trouble selling my Freelander to a private buyer. In our opinion the Freelander TD4 manual is an excellent car and we would recommend it to anyone.
