    My car

    The F2 was purchased in late Dec 06.

    The dealer service was appaling considering you are paying near £30k, BMW and Audi understand how to look after their customers, I wont be going back to Landrover. They must have the only dealerships that have more people at at the customer service desk than in the showroom.

    Pros: driving position, economy, looks, sat nav, motorway driving, blue tooth system.

    Cons: excessive engine noise, poor sudden braking, engine drive train shunt, lack of refinement, very poor low rev engine pick up, gimic start button, heated mirrors, auto lights

    Problems: 1) The auto wipers failed; it took 3 days and two new windscreens and associated sensors to sort the problem. 2) Random failure of start button, particularly after stalling; no solution. 3)Eratic auto lights; no solution.

    The only time I have enjoyed driving the F2 was in the snow, god knows what I was thinking of when I was taking test drives.

    My car

    Tremendous car. No delivery problems, no teething problems. LR dealer in Aberystwyth treated me well. Superb roadholding, very comfortable driving position, automatic gearbox works well,and diesel consumption is absolutely fine (in excess of 30 mph, even during running-in period). One feels extremely safe in this vehicle. There are cheaper 4X4s in this category, but the Freelander2 beats them all.

    My car

    Having owned a new F2 for over a month now, I am very pleased with the handling, light steering, economy, and CO2 emissions (same as my old hatchback). Its an entirely different drive to the old F1.

    I love the driving position, the quiet cabin and build quality.

    Loads of torque and very quick between 40 and 70 mph.

    I prefer the high load deck which has taken 6 sacks of sand, 2 of cement and patio slabs without complaint.

    Only problems I've experienced have been the rear heated quaterlight window not connected to the wiring loom and for some inexplicable reason all the electric windows opened by themselves sometime during the night.

    My car

    Having owned the previous model Freelander, the immediate thing that I noticed was a great improvement in the quality of finish, both of the interior and exterior of the vehicle. Taking the vehicle for a test drive further confirmed my opinion that this was a great improvement over the previous model. The steering although light gives good feedback.The vehicle is very comfortable and quiet to travel in. My vehicle was delivered on time and was very well presented. The thing that surprised me was the discount I received from my dealer, over £2000 which on a vehicle which had only been out three months at the time I placed my order seemed fantastic. So far 4 weeks into ownership I am very happy with the way the vehicle drives and its fuel economy. It is a far superior product than the old model Freelander and I would urge anyone in the market for a small 4x4 to have a test drive.Finally I have used the same dealer for 15 years and have to say I find them very good. However I have to admit I find their pricing for servicing vehicles rather high.
