#1002 of 1535 Land Rover Freelander 2002, expensive for what?
Nov 29, 2006 (10:47 am)
I just bouth 5 months ago a Freelander 2002 with 56,000 miles. In November at 62,000 miles the transmission died. It would cost $3400 to replace it with a rebuilt. How can a transmission died on a 4 year old vehicule, especialy on a car with such a good reputation? I called Land Rover America and they basicaly do not give a dam about our problems. If you buy a Rover, please get the extra warranty.

samething happened to us. at around the same mileage the transmission had to be replaced. at around 82,000 miles the entire engine had to be replaced a timing belt broke and killed the entire engine. luckily we had the extended warranty and it covered the transmission but not the engine. the dealers said if the 72000 mile check up had been done then at that time they replace the timing belts and other things at a cost of about 1200.00 dollars. the engine was 3,741 dollars not counting the labor at 94.00 dollars an hour. and the dealers know about the problems with that particular land rover. the company no longer makes freelanders due to the bad experiences with the vehicle. but they dont offer to claim they are lemon vehicles.

I bought my 2002 freelander used from about a year and half ago and i've had the transmission replaced six months ago under the extended warranty and this morning when i was going to work the check engine light came on. I have a few more years of payments and I'm stuck. Please count me in I wish I could just get rid of this thing!!

I bought an 04 freelander hse back in aug of this year. Today 12-08-2006 an aluminum bracket underneath the passenger side that holds the trailer arm or I beam "which ever they call it " broke off and cause my truckt to pull to the left and across lanes and t- boned another car. I called Land Rover and awaiting there response lord knows they will say it is my fault some how. I called a lemon law place they said my truck isn't concidered to be a lemon due to the fact I bought it this year and it is an 04. This is bs
