Land Rover Freelander

Typically land rover usually comes up with quality vehicles, but this was a slip-up. The vehicle, introduced toward the end of the 90s was made to offer off-road capability, though a number of engine problems quickly gave it away. For one, that engine harness may chase and end up in engine failure.

A chain reaction will cause a number of systems to fail including, cooling fans, air cons, fuel pumps and anti-lock braking. The other thing is the handbrake is not tight so the brakes may not be firm enough and the vehicle could roll on rough off-road surfaces.

Most of the consumers complain about engine overheating and transmission problems. On the plus side, the fuel economy is really good, but other than that, you will be seeing a lot of your mechanic.

  1. Thank you for the advice about the vehicles to avoid buying in kenya. I would like to know if a subaru forester is a good car to look at especially SG5 model

  2. 1.What are good cars one could go for in terms of mechanism, fuel consumption, spare parts etc
    2.How about Nissan b14 is it good car one can buy?

  3. Dude! Have you even owned a Mitsubishi? Where did you get this info? “The GDI engines do not have fuel filters, they are built in.”??
    I own one of these and I change my filters every time I service my car. Its very wrong of you to write such articles giving people wrong information.

    • I agree too.i own a mitsubishi GDI too.it totally depends on how you take care of your automobile.if you cant sustain the maintanance avoid at all cost.

  4. Assuming all cars were driven by the same driver for a period of time equally
    Then Mitsubishi needs patient and careful guys

  5. Are there modern cars with EFI engines that have replaceable fuel filterst these days? The last time I replaced an in-line fuel filter was many years ago on a Mazda 323.

  6. I have a toyota caldina for six years the new model . It’s at 330 000 no problem so far I have about 240 000 and not complaining when should I expect what you’re talking about?

  7. I am in Kenya and i would like to find spares for my mitsubishi lancer cedia. Is there anyone with a clue where i could go to for spares. I will be glad to receive any information
