    My car

    I own the auto version and have had it for approx 18 months with no problems at all. It was a big decision to buy the FL2 but I haven't regretted it for a moment. Although I have driven the FL2 off road, it is on 'normal' roads that I enjoy driving it most. The driving postion is excellent, everything works as it should and I think the fuel economy is good for a genuine 4x4. However, the reason I rate the FL2 so highly is simply because my family and I always feel safe when we are in it, regardless of the weather, traffic, etc.

    My car

    I purchased an FL2 namely for towing our caravan, for this it has been a dream. Averaging 32 mpg from Aberdeenshire down to Cheshire in the summer. I have found the the climatic conditions and road speed do affect the MPG, I have had between 31.7 - 44.3 mpg. My previous vehicle a SAAB (PETROL) would only give between 16 -18 mpg whilst towing. Our vehicle was involved in a collision 2 weeks ago and has been written off. The driver and their passenger walked away with bruising only. I am in the process of securing another FL2. I like jam with my bread and I feel I have that with the FL2

    My car

    My review is based on driving it on Land Rover offroad experience day. I had absolutely no previous off road driving experience. Yet I faced no problem as such. The terrain had mud and ruts, wet marshland, logs, steep up/down hills etc. On few stretches, the car tilted side wise ~30 degree and it was scary. Yet I managed to pass without drama. While going uphill, even if you press the brake, the car won't roll backward. While coming downhill, if you just take your feet of any of the pedals, the hill decent control simply driving the car slowly downward (you just control the steering). I went to ditches and came out successfully. The terrain response system is wonderful - it made driving off road so much easier! The interior is very comfortable and spacious. The front seats adjust electrically. The view from cabin is excellent (you can even see the bonnet). It's a very capable off road car with good on road manners. Please do not buy this car unless you plan to take it off road. Buying this for school runs only is pure wastage of money!

    My car

    I owned the previous freelander for two years TD4 and had no major problems. So i felt i would give the new one ago again. The cabin has been greatly improved still the odd rattle though. The engine is smoothe powerfull and gives o.k fuel consuption, is a 4x4 so you have to give a little leeway. I am 6'4 and i do find the driving postition a little uncomftable the wife has an X3 and this is far better with regard to driving postion. I would recommend the Freelander 2 to anybody as it is a major step foward and feels safe and quality greatly improved. What is a negative is the dealerships old fashioned customer service and are not to bothered. I have tried a few and are all very poor. Land rover is making the necessary changes but the dealers are not and this will surely be a factor when owning. Land rover need to get the dealers by the neck and shack them. I would say buy one and enjoy, if you have no problems great but if you do have problems find a big wall to bash your head against.
