2002 Land Rover Freelander Owner Comments

problem #5

Nov 072002

Freelander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles


While applying the brake pedal, the consumer heard a loud squeaking noise. Then, the vehicle vibrated uncontrollably. Consumer was able to maintain control of the vehicle, and pulled over. The vehicle was towed to the dealer for inspection, who determined the brake rotors and pads needed to be replaced, and replaced them. However, the problem recurred. The consumer stated the coolant system failed and the vehicle had electrical problems.

Its really a 2001 Freelander, there is no 2001 Freelander in the search options....but anyways I havent had any problems at all with my car until about 16500 miles and my left rotor started grinding so I had to get both of my front pads replaced and the drums were fine. I dont think that the pads should go out this soon, I still have the original tires on, and they will need to be replaced in the next year, but the pads went out so soon. Everything is fine now....its a great car.

Vehicle has 19,000 miles. Brought into dealer for emissions work. Dealer stated I needed new front brakes (pads & rotors). Rotors are deeply grooved. I expressed concern that at under 20K miles I needed new rotors. Was told this was "regular wear and tear" and not covered under warranty. Dealer stated that Land Rover needs their rotors replace every 10-15K. I consider this excessive wear and tear. Dealer will not cover under warranty. I have numerous other issues with car & dealer as well.
