For Christ's sake when are you going to shut up??? Why don't you spend as much time looking for problems with OTHER makers??? ALL manufacturers have problems/recalls etc etc - you are SO SAD..............

or maybe pathetic would be a better description!!!!!

I am happy with my Freelander only problem so far rear brake shoes went off and wouldn´t move, piece of cake but took some time getting the drum off.

Like it nearly as much as my Jón Baldur´s Trabant......

Just to be fair, I know Codders thinks I build these web pages myself
try this link
its from the Landrover Club itself

http://www.landroverclub.net/Club/HT...r_problems.htm
its all, here the famous knock of death, timing belts failing because its Tuesday, power steering permanent leaks, water leaks body corrosion quite horrific in all respects

but this shocked me the most
