"should have kept this on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean or dropped it off the freighter into the ocean on the way over here to America. I could dig up a Rambler 1962 classic from the junk yard and it would ne more reliable"

"I've owned a 2003 Freelander for 10 years and am finally getting rid of it after spending about 3x its worth in repairs. It served as a college car for my 2 kids so for that purpose it beat buying new ones for them. Biggest complaint is that things went wrong with it that should never happen to a "high end" car with this mileage - cracks in both front axles, power window controller died, automatic door lock controller died,a clogged drain under the wipers caused water to leak onto the floorboards, the roof leaked, the fuel pump conked out at 75K miles, etc. etc. If you don't live near a Land Rover dealer you may have problems getting other foreign car repair shops to work on one of these. And LR dealers charge you as if they were repairing a nuclear submarine instead of an internal combustion engine. Every time I see someone driving a new LR the old saying about a fool and his money parting ways comes to mind."

"Horrible. Friday the 13th kind of horrible. First year was great, exceptionally good looking , tight drive. Then everything starts breaking down, window motors , transmission F4, then my engine blew up. It blew up. Like went pow. Dealership just shrugs and charges a mint. The butt warmers do make waiting for the tow truck in the winter nice."
