|I eventually found a Freelander 2|
I have had an urge to get a Freelander 2 for some time , but I cannot forget about the disastrous discovery td5 That I bought many years ago . It wasn't so much the Disco - rather the guy who did me ... and I fell for it - so I guess it was my own fault .
I plucked up enough courage about 3 months ago, to get a td4 gs 2007 manual as a stopgap . After I did a few repairs , I sold it with the intention to get an automatic , to replace my Hyundai tucson auto which I sold prior . Anyway as I liked the old td4 with 136k miles (it ran lovely) . I started looking for an Automatic Freelander 2 , preferably from Cambridge area or even farther south. Black suits the car , but its not for me as I have had one ! I spoke to our local 4x4 specialist , he advised getting as new as possible with up to 80k and fsh . After looking for some time - there seems to be plenty black td4's manual , and people selling privately seem to think they can get dealer prices . I realised I was not going to get everything I wanted - so I eventually got a 2014 , with 65k miles SD4 GS was hoping for an XS . The Lady I spoke with took her uncles car from Devon to Edinburgh where she lives , the owner sadly passed away . Usually I am not bothered about the colour too much - but I know now that Mauritius blue is sought after . I am happy with it albeit a wee bit concerned about hearing the turbo spooling up and down .
