First breakdown !

Well it had to happen, touring around Wales with the caravan and some warning lights appeared. Stabilty, ABS, and park brake! Took it to an indy LR man who read the codes and didn't think it was too serious, maybe a wheel sensor? Should be OK to drive. Few more days and into a site not far from Fishguard, lights keep coming on and a slight grab on the park brake just after moving off! Decide to make for home, got to about 10 miles from Carmarthen and reduced performance comes on! Pull into layby and call Mayday recovery. Eventually we get home the next day after poor service from Green Flag. Into my local indy that I have used for 25 years, and it's a wheel sensor and split intercooler hose, £300 +vat! All good now. After over 6 years and towing all over Europe I don't have any complaints, it's a great car and excellent towing vehicle. Thumbs Up MY 2013 SD GS Auto

Australia 2013 Freelander 2 2.0T SE Auto Fuji White

I keep my cars until there is no point. Peugeot 504 & Seat Ibiza, both 18 years, Peugeot was already 7 when I bought it. The odometers on each stopped working at about 250,000km. To date the Freelander is the most reliable car. My sister's Evoque is a year older than my Freelander & it has been her most reliable car. Every car will need repairs, it will happen, you just have to factor in some savings so you are not backed up in a corner. The longer I have the Freelander the more I appreciate its qualities.

Recently being driving it every day due to some family major health issues. It just soothes the problems at hand & makes the daily trip to the hospital almost enjoyable. Procrastination, mankind's greatest labour saving device!

I totally agree, when you have a good one keep it! I had a classic Range Rover that I bought at 2 years old and kept it for 14 years, only problem was a fuel pump relay which the main dealer couldn't identify but my local indy did(still use them over 25 years later), then of course the rust got it Rolling with laughter
Love the FL2, such a great drive, comfortable ,tows brilliantly. MY 2013 SD GS Auto
