"Class action" sounds like a big hammer, but some of you may be better off talking to your own attorney, a lemon law attorney or your state's consumer protection agency or the BBB. You may do better not being lumped in with a crowd. Often you can get a free or cheap initial consultation too.
Or maybe John Grisham's The King of Torts influenced me a bit too much.

Jul 25, 2007 (1:20 am)
I would like for Land Rover to buy back my 2003 Freelander. I purchsed it used on 4/30/07. It overheated less than a week later.I have brought it back to dealer(SEWELL) three times for a commulative period of about 50 days overall. They sent it to Land Rover to check out.Initially, the coolant dissapeared after 5 days, and then I found it to be leaking into the engine.The engine is also knocking. The first trip back to dealer, nothing was done, "no leak found". The second trip, I wa told that there was a hose replaced and that the problem was fixed. The service engine light came on and two days later the coolant had completely dissapeared(into the engine again.)The third time, it was brought in on JULY 3rd and this past week it was finally decided that there was engine problems and it needed replacing at my cost or $6500 as trade in(I paid $15000. I towed the truck home.Please help. I have initiated correspondence with LR manufacturer via letter on July 2nd and was contacted by phone on July 20th, and they siad they would check into it.I have contact BBB and have found 2 attorneys that will review my case. i am in theprocess of betting papperword submitted to them for review. What else can I do to get it bought back by the manufacturer?

I bought me my freelander in feb of 07, its been in the shop 5 times since then and is about to go back in.( I would have it there now but landrover is backed up for 2 weeks, wonder why) But ive had the same things go wrong as everyone else, I just dont see how a company like landrover, can make such terd. I regret getting rid of my trooper now. What sucks is I still have 4 years of payments on it, and Im not sure how to get rid of it and still at least break even. If anyone has any ideas, it would be greatly appreciated. I think my next car may be a hyndai, I bet theyre better quality than a lr.

Well, hop on with our lawsuit if you'd like......
In the meantime...if this is affecting your livelyhood...insist on them taking you sooner and let them know that everyday you spend out of work is going to be what you give them as a bill.....or through your lawyer. They have an obligation that they are letting go....they are treating people like dirt and it's just not right.
You can also see how much you can get for it from Toyota or Hyndai.....just for kicks

I'm hoping that even though we are in Michigan and the lawyer is in CA that we will still be included in the lawsuit. It is actually me daughter and son-in-laws car, that's been sitting since may, because they can't afford to get the transmission fixed and they owe more than it's worth cause it's not worth anything!!
Thanks for the info

Yes, you should be fine. This is a Lawsuit that is spanning through the US as far as I know; if not, North America, as that's how they function as well.
Talk to you soon. Bridget
