    Freelander II Re: Freelander 2 Turbo? - limp mode issue

    My dad's 2007 TD4 sometimes went into limp mode, especially when you needed some power, i.e overtaking, accelerating hard, etc.

    We feared the worst. Turned out to be a clogged air filter.

    Re: Freelander 2 shudder/vibration at 60km/h

    What does your tyre setup look like?

    When I changed 2 tyres on my Volvo, the AWD didn't like it and I had a vibration. Added two more new tyres and it was gone.

    Re: FreeLander2 rear diff whining - advice please

    My dad bought his 2007 FL2 in 2012 at around 120k km with the rear diff whine.

    8 years later and now on 200k km, it's still whining. Hasn't got better or worse.

    He just drives it.

    Re: Tyre age vs condition

    This is the Dunlop Sport 2030's I have on the front of the Insight.

    Week 14 of 2016. Barely 4 years old. They look somewhat worse for wear.

    Re: Tyre age vs condition

    If you have a blow out and an accident / skid on a wet road and your insurance company is clever enough to see you are using a 17 year old tyre, you won't have a claim. I've seen it happen.
