What! This is rubbish, the new freelander is being launched soon, so you should get a very good deal!
You can find all the dealers hear!

You could try

http://www.lapworthautos.com/

A bloke on here bought through them - was very pleased with their service - they are imported back into this country but with none of the usual problems.

Any reason why? I love autos with a nice big V8 petrol but I have never really found they suit diesels that well - either they are slow OR they chip them so they are not but then the fuel economy suffers.

Never having driven a Freelander auto though I can't really comment - just curious!!!

Peter,

If ya going to give them a call also say you know our lass, Keran. She does the group training for the parent company Pendragon plc. If ya coming over for a look let us know we are only up the road could meet for a beer.

Martin

I had a 2001 Freelander 1.8 S from new, it was useless for towing the Rib, blew the clutch at 40,000 no low gear ratio

Get the TD4 the 1.8 was well under powered.

IIRC Andre also found that he had problems - don't know which model.

Wayne's is OK of course!

Of course - I forgot - cars like this tend not to have a low ratio transfer box - hence the advantage of an auto!!!

The TD4 is a good engine though.
