United Kingdom 

Last week we drove from Leeds to Budapest, about 1300 miles in total. We are heading back this week. We did it in about 2 and a half tanks of diesel. Stopped over night in 2 places, 3 days of driving.

The Freelander was great, very smooth on the motorways. No problems crusing at 80 - 90 mph on the autobahn.

The roads in Hungary are not the best, there's potholes everywhere, it's nice to have a SUV rather than a car here.

The next adventure could be a trip to the costa del sol in the winter.

Driven to a cottage in the middle of nowhere, in the Wye Valley. Rained from about 15 miles before the Severn Bridge and barely stopped since we arrived.

Got back yesterday from our Grand daughters birthday weekend up in Norfolk, in total it was a 800 mile trip with 600 on Motorways......cruised mostly at an indicated 70mph (true 66mph we find it better at that speed on CC for avoiding crazys cutting and thrusting and still fast enough to overtake the trucks withoutndrama) got a return of 28mpg which I was pleased about for a petrol 3.2litres six auto, the FL2 was perfect for the trip Thumbs Up Regards

United Kingdom 2014 Freelander 2 SD4 Metropolis LE Auto Fuji White

Went for out for a meal at a restaurant.
The car park slots are a bit on the narrow side.

Discovered 2 things when I came out, after noting a car had parked quite close on my drivers side.

1 The FL2 doors are very thick.
2 My legs no longer are as bendable as they were, pre-pension..

(I managed to get across from passengers side to drive, but I need tips on how best it, can be achieved for next time) FL2 XS SD4 Auto 2010 2012-2017 (21k - 91k miles)
FL2 Metropolis SD4 Auto 2014 2017- (16k - 44k+ miles)

Oh yes perfect apart from the call out Saturday night to a neighbouring farm which had had some “visitors” attempting some fun by igniting a few thousand pounds worth of stack........melted one of our irrigation lines as well, if they get caught best they get locked up straight away!

Thanks Jules, but recently a court case finished and the perpetrators sentenced after having “fun” setting light to pigs in the fields with tyres around them and a new born litters with accelerant while in the night shelter......thank heaven we stick to arable or we’d be out lamping.......but not for wildlife Evil or Very Mad

Sick barstards who now are languishing in prison for up to eight years.....

Total fookwits. Regards

Picked up 10 sacks of 20mm gravel for a french drain, took an old lady to church, went to Mass, dropped off the gravel and took 4 large sacks of spoil to the tip, sorry recycling centre.

PS: oops, forgot the old lady and left her in church.
