just convert your freelander to rear wheel drive use a 4.1 chevy engine and transmission with a custom made drive shaft from a trailblazer or gmc jimmy and do all the necessary adaptations and get rid of the problem will be cheaper but you need a good mechanic not just a parts changer
#144 of 149 STAY AWAY FROM LAND ROVER, PLEASE

I wish I could get rid of mine so quickly I've be trying to sell it no luck, and trade it the price they offering me is less than what I spent on the tires. I bought it in 2008 with 60,000 miles and a month after I spent a $1000 to fix it. From then to now every 2 to 3 weeks I am fixing something on the engine. I lost count of the amount of money I've spent, but I can tell you itís way more than the price. Please don't buy any land rover products anymore and the world will be a safe place.

I purchased one of these gems in 2010 with 60k miles on it. At 93,000 the temp gauge was pegging at max and I could not keep antifreeze levels up. Took it into my mechanic and he gave me the grave news. I now have the dreaded driveway blocker that I cannot trust to drive, and cannot afford to fix (or replace the engine). Does anyone know of any relief from the LR people for this lemon?

Did you ever get an answer from landrover. Ours has been sitting in the garage for three years!

Did you ever get a resolution to this? I have had dozens of mechanics tell me this is a horrible vehicle....and expensive to fix. Can you imagine why anyone would want to own another?

Any suggestions on some Chinese engines, those might work better than this kv6 junk.
