    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.

    My car

    I’ve owned my 57 plate Freelander 2 GS Auto since July 2011. It had 25,000 miles on the clock and I covered 53,000 in total now. I had a TD$ before for nearly 7 year and loved it, with now major issues, despite it reputation.

    Don’t get me wrong a love this car, however, I do have concerns over its overall reliably. It starts first time, every time, so no issue there. However, there have been some minor and majors issues.

    Firstly the Air Con drain blocked (design fault) = £105 Landrover main dealer. Then Rear Diff bearings = £545 Landrover main dealer. Recently Main Four Wheel Drive System (breaking front drive shaft) - £2,234.

    Would I buy another….yes, probably would…typical mad Landrover owner

    My car

    Bought nearly new exactly a year ago and the model is still advertised at the same price I paid last feb. Cracking motor with a really smart styling kit. Second Land Rover I have owned and I am yet to suffer any reliability problems.

    It does 34mpg average and you can achieve 40mpg on a long run. I did check out the X3 and Q5 but they just did not do it for me - They lack the Land Rover Heritage. Really can't fault this car in any way. Superb.

    Just one point, use a local garage with genuine parts for servicing - you will save a fortune over the life of the vehicle and if you keep the receipt breakdown re parts, it should not hurt the resale as much as the cost of Land Rover servicing.
