Anyone on the site drive one or have any info on them? the wife crazed me for one before the Nav and still does go on and on and on and on about how much she wants one :blink:. In the past I heard and read a few things about problems with the running gear on the pre 2000 models but are the later models upto 2004 still the same?

Cheers

Jasper

before the 2000 models were giving bother with the electric back window on the freelanders, but the newer models seem to be better built 2003 up seem good, if your looking for one give it a good lookng over for bushings etc hope this helps.

I have allways found the Freelander to favoured by hairdressers, messers and the more bum bandit types of terriermen :D

Cheers guys for the replies :victory:. My problem here is we only have the one motor! The wife hates shopping in the Nav due to parking it but weather she likes it or not the Nav stays :big_boss:, the funny thing is when I picked up the Nav she thought I was going out to take a look at a Freelander! her face was a picture when I pulled up in the Navara :haha:...

Cheers

Jasper
