My Yeti gets 30mpg with gentle driving not sure why. These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules, and used as original equipment or replacement equipment. The boot is about a billion times bigger than the old model it's actually up 38percent, but that's loads , and there's plenty of room up front. Ride is smooth and comfortable, with a feeling of space. Everything works as it should. One of the keenest deals we spotted was the one-owner 2007 3. The driving position is lower, but not by so much as to lose the commanding view ahead.

Previously a Freelander 1 owner, I had the usual run of expensive technical problems with that, but the ride and off road capability was excellent. Fuel consumption is not great. Yes - because it has been totally reliable in every way. I went for the manual gearbox as I expect to do over 130,000 during my ownership and not sure how the auto gearbox would cope. The dif went at 60k, unfortunately it was out of warranty so cost me thousands to fix!! Land Rover's recovery vehicle was the Freelander 2, equally compact but completely new from the ground up — pretty much nothing carried over from the earlier model.
Not so much legroom in the rear but under six-footers should be fine. So far no problems with the ca and am looking forward to driving it to Spain later in the summer. She has been so good, no trouble, regularly serviced and very comfy. Some may consider the styling dated, but it still has impressive road presence and is probably the most practical vehicle in its class. The performance seemed really good on the test drive. Servicing costs are a bit on the expensive side. Any manual would better that with ease.
Im with Mad Hat Man on this one - you are unlikely to get an unbiased report on this forum- I'm on my third Freelander. On first impression, very good.

I've tried tempting her with a newer Fl2 but she's happy with what she's got. I love this car, reluctantly will be selling her soon as in moving abroad. As you can see, this page provides you with all our user generated reviews of Land Rover Freelander 2 cars.
Plenty of F2 buying advice threads on here. I bought the Freelander 2 from new as I wanted one with a sunroof and they didn't appear on demonstrators. Why are Japanese car dealers always better? But while the Freelander is a very accomplished family car that is also superb for towing, its sky-high image means bargains are few and far between. A cool car for the singaporean roads, not cool as a Land Rover or a Range Rover, but respectable. This did rectify itself once the weather warmed up. They might have a similar remit, but they're pretty much unrecognisable in the way they go about it.
Certainly, this has the most showroom appeal of any small 4x4. Also got a Syngery 1 tuning module fitted. On both occasions the only indication was a drop in over all performance and some exhaust smoke when accelerating. Most praised its comfort and refinement and were happy with the economy. Other than that, it's a great daily hack. I would say that was pretty solid service on Terry's part. Ergonomically, the driving position is fairly sound.
Build quality is also significantly better than the original, while the interiors are also more stylish and better equipped, with top versions offering Bluetooth connectivity and premium sound systems. Unfortunately the Discovery Sport is a crap replacement so I am still with this one, and have not found anything that ticks my boxes. The Build,fit and finish are excelent,as is the comfort. Panned for lacking off-road ability, it was underpowered and generally underwhelming. Now The owners of the Freelander 2 we surveyed were overwhelmingly supportive of their cars.
The reliability as the miles increased has become very poor. Most praised its comfort and refinement and were happy with the economy. After an eight hour drive to the north of Scotland, I didn't feel exhausted. I'm glad I bought a Freelander, not Japanese, 5 years of basically trouble free motoring. Wheelarch inner plastic mud protectors distorted after 2 years.
The original six-cylinder engine was later replaced by a 2. At the moment I am inclined to buy a different 4x4. My 2007 model is the 2. Oh, and there's little or no wind noise from the mirrors, even at high motorway speed! Also check for a service record to be confident the car you've chosen has been well looked after. The boot is ok but not huge. Visit our partner sites who have for , , and.
Read the to help you decide on buying a car. The neighbour's Land Cruiser has recently been laid up with air suspension trouble - so its not a Land Rover problem - its what you should expect if you want bells, whistles, gizmos, bling blah blah. And even from the owner of the Land Rover here in France who is a Landy fanatic However, I like the Freelander 2. Another in 2008 related to a potential short circuit in the electric booster heater that could cause a fire. It has both a decent ride quality and an ability to drive reasonably hard without falling off at the first hint of a corner. I never have to worry about it starting or overheating.
