FREE­LANDER 1

Land Rover Monthly - - Classifieds -

1997 TO 2006

AN AF­FORD­ABLE en­try-level Land Rover, but look­ing dated now. The 1.8 petrol en­gines are trou­ble­some and best avoided. We'd opt for the more re­li­able diesel, which is eco­nom­i­cal and me­chan­i­cally sim­ple, but make sure it has been prop­erly ser­viced, with par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion to tim­ing belt re­newal. The later TD4 is more com­pli­cated but is chain-driven so no tim­ing belt wor­ries. Best news of all: Free­lander has no rust is­sues to worry about. BUYER'S TIP: Td4 diesel is a great sec­ond­hand buy.
