      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      The Td4 ES is the 2nd Freelander we've had, replacing a 1.8 EXi. Advice: Don't buy the 1.8 petrol - it's gutless. Only buy the v6 if you've a deep wallet as it drinks more than Oliver Reed. Okay, maybe the build quality isn't as good as it should be but in 4yrs of owning Freelanders we've has only 1 problem which the dealership fixed without any issue. Perhaps we've been lucky although there are fittings that creak a bit. The Td4 has, so far, been reliable, not too slow (for a diesel with the aerodynamics of a brick) and is good to drive. The autobox makes life easy. It's not that thirsty. The drive is smooth and can handle anything that London roads throw at it. Some of the switch gear is a bit dated but so what? The car as a whole still looks streets ahead of any of its rivals. The competition: Jeep-way too thirsty: Rav4-too sad: Honda CRV-I'm too young/not that sensible: Shogun Pinin-tonka toy styling: Maverick-if you're gonna buy a 4x4 with an oval badge buy the real McCoy (and yes I know that Ford own LR) Avoid London dealerships as they discount less than their non-London rivals and tend to be arrogant and pompous focusing on Range Rover buyers rather than 'cheap' Freelander punters.
