    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.

    My car

    I have owned this car for the last three years and have found it meets all my requirements both for off-roading,rough-roading and normal road work. It is very comfortable to drive with plenty of performance for everyday use. It has been totally reliable and only visited the LR Agents for annual service & MOT. Criticsms are few. The dash layout is poor and difficult to see in certain lights. Fuel cosumption is 25mpg on short journeys but rises to 35mpg on motorway and longer journeys. All in all it is the most pleasing car of the 30+ I have owned previously

    I have owned this car for a year now and haven't had a single problem. Really enjoy the way it drives and the all round quality feel you get from it. Will definitely buy land rover again

    My car

    My second Freelander 2, I updated to the new model SD4 XS Automatic in March this year. I never expected to buy the same vehicle twice, but my previous Freelander proved to so comfortable and reliable (see review 27.08.08) there was no other vehicle that I preferred. The new model also offered improved performance and economy, which seemed a bit like having your cake and eating it. A further reason for staying with Land Rover was the excellent resale value my vehicle retained after 3 years and 42,000 miles. So far after 4,000 miles, the new engine is noticeably quieter and the extra performance most appreciated when overtaking. The MPG has increased by an extra 4 mpg over my last model. 32mpg achieved daily and 38 to 40mpg on longer runs. Having not got one puncture in my last Freelander, I took a leap of faith and chose to have the puncture repair kit in my new model rather than have a full size spare wheel, this has increased the boot space available by nearly a third, solving my only gripe with the Freelander. Just as comfortable as my previous model with the added equipment of Sat nav, heated seats and heated front screen to appreciate next winter I am looking forward to life with my new model Freelander. A British vehicle you can be proud to drive and own. Why choose anything else?
