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

On my 4th Freelander, had 3 diesels, woefully underpowered, especially with an autobox but this can be addressed, now got a V6. Pphhhhwwwarrrr.

Have been quoted an eyewatering £1350.00 for a belt change on it, or as little as £350.00, go figure??

If you keep an eye on the drive train, mostly the VCU run same size tyres all round then most likey a big bill (IRD repalcement) can be avoided. Recommended that the VCU replaced at around 70k miles but some owners have them on for 100k+?

Good right up on secondhand ones in this months LRO mag.
