Any known issues with the first Land Rover Freelander?

I'm looking at this car on Land Rover Freelander 2.0 Td4 GS Commercial. What are the common issues with this car? It's a 2001 model, 1.9 diesel with 110,000km.

Also how much is this to tax ?

Hi John,

I'm afraid that generation of the Freelander was very troublesome, though the diesel is the best option. Listen out for noises from the rear differential and gearbox and check that every single electrical switch and light is working as it should be.

A 1.9-litre diesel from 2001 would normally be €660, but commercial vehicle tax is currently only €310 per annum.

Hope that helps
