okay so i have realised we need a second car in the clan, preferably roomy, and 4x4 is essential due to the muddy festivals i enjoy going to.. so i immediately thought freelander :D id love one like this

but would consider older to bring the price down.. i just think that one looks the dogs business :D so any advice, pointers, what to look for etc would be appreciated

We loved our freelander petrol. Just under 100k miles and still going, though withthte couple of knocks No 1 daughter has had in it it might just fail the MoT on some silly things which arent worth repairing.

Quashqi is horrid. Cheap and nasty plastics, ride like a blancmange thoght it isnt bad looking.
My god, you must be one of the very few lucky ones!!
We know a number of people who have had similar experiences and none with horror stories.

Still on the same clutch as well despite some off road work, building work and as she got older being used by the whole family as the "pool" car as well as SWMBO's main daily transport.

If LR hadn't botched teh rear end of the FL2 and started charging an arm, leg, 2 kidneys and a testicle for a less interesting variant and only in deisel form, we would have bought a new one in a second.

Looks like we might end up with a Kuga - but as we dont want a deisel we might be disappointed.
