Run­ning costs

Auto Express - - Buying Cars -

DIESEL Free­lander 2s need to be ser­viced ev­ery 16,000 miles or 12 months; petrol mod­els ev­ery 10,000 miles. Check-ups al­ter­nate be­tween mi­nor and ma­jor, at £295 and £530 for diesels but a hefty £518-£639 for petrols. While the petrol is chain-driven, the diesel unit’s cam­belt needs re­plac­ing ev­ery 144,000 miles or nine years.

Fresh brake fluid is re­quired ev­ery three years (£42), while the coolant, gear­box and dif­fer­en­tial oil and aux­il­iary drive belt need re­plac­ing ev­ery 10 years or 150,000 miles. This ser­vice costs £900 (£1,190 for the petrol), so be wary of a Free­lander 2 that’s com­ing up to 10 years old or 150,000 miles and needs a ser­vice.
