An interesting Video about a Freelander II

Freel2 Readers,

One of the channels that I watch on YouTube is called High Peak Autos.

The videos are typically interesting and entertaining.


The latest video is about a FREEL2

Hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I did.

If you skip to the end there is a summary of the cost to refurbish the vehicle.

Take care

Paul

But yet this FL2 was 'mended' and put on sale.

A case of buyer beware. FL2 XS SD4 Auto 2010 2012-2017 (21k - 91k miles) (MY2011)
FL2 Metropolis SD4 Auto 2014 2017- (16k - 76k+ miles) (MY2015)

Note, all the work was farmed out. A good home mechanic could have done most of the work himself. Also shows what a good car we have that can be brought back to a good standard. Considering the way the car had been abused Jim A

Well said. Thumbs Up Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

That is what I saw when I watched the video.

Take care

All through the video I'm going 'NO, you don't know the FL2'

and then at the end he tries to sell his services to you. With his mistakes, you could make the losses he made !!!

United Kingdom 2014 Freelander 2 SD4 GS Auto Orkney Grey

I watch a lot of Matt's highpeak YouTube videos. He does seem to end up spending way more on cars than he should and ending up with little profit (if he's to be believed) but he doesn't seem to skimp on car preparation. I think I'd be happy to buy a car from him. Landrover - turning owners into mechanics since 1948
