England 2013 Freelander 2 SD4 HSE Auto Orkney Grey

The injured party according to BBC news site has received a personal letter of apology from HRH. And it hasn’t taken her long to pass it to the Sunday Mirror for publication today.
Kerching.
Is there anyone, apart from the Mirror Group and personal injury lawyers of course, that has an ounce of sympathy for this woman ?

Money talks, lets hope she claims no benefits as its a double edged sword. FL2 MY10 TD4 GS traded in at 2 years
FL2 MY13 TD4 GS Current

Apparently the D of E has given up his driving licence so unless he continues to drive around the Estates there will be a FL2 coming on the market soon. Unless of course HM Queen drives it. 3 x FL1 2 manual + 1 auto no real problems
FL2 S 08 reg 100k no problems
FL2 S 10 reg Gearbox, clutch, throttle body, drive shaft, steering reservoir
FL2 GS 60 reg xfer box, diff and wheel bearings

Dash cam footage would be the re-make of the Greek film "The Straight Story"

..... The film is based on the true story of Alvin Straight's 1994 journey across Iowa and Wisconsin on a lawn mower. Alvin is an elderly World War II veteran who lives with his daughter Rose, a kind woman with an intellectual disabilities. Because Alvin's legs and eyes are too impaired for him to receive a driving license, he rides a Lawn Mower Tractor and sets off on the 240 mile journey from Laurens, Iowa to Mount Zion, Wisconsin.

You need to put a search on Autotrader for 'Freelander 2, Low Mileage, one careful owner'. FL2 XS SD4 Auto 2010 2012-2017 (21k - 91k miles)
FL2 Metropolis SD4 Auto 2014 2017- (16k - 36k+ miles)

James French tends to get ex-Royal Household vehicles in the first instance....nothing on there currently. They did have a rather nice Disco 4 HSE Luxury not so long ago on a 64 plate in Aintree with less than 2000 miles on it.....
