Freelander 8-cyl

Electrical drain on system continued to weaken the battery, causing overall electrical shutdown. The car has been to the dealer three times. The first time, in December, the truck was at the dealer for one week. The last time was March 16, 2005 and it took the dealer 13 days to find, track and resolve the problem. I am picking up the vehicle tomorrow, March 30 to see if the problem has been resolved.

The vehicle's check engine light illuminated. The mirrors did not reach some angles, the gas cap could not get open, and the vehicle suddenly died out without warning. The consumer was informed that the battery was a problem.
