    Default Looking to buy 2010 Freelander 2 TD4 SE - Have some concerns

    G'day All,

    Went to test drive the vehicle today. Great drive. 2 things do bother me:

    1 - It has 215,000 k's on the clock. Is this high or pretty much acceptable?
    2 - Pulling away is my main concern. When I the vehicle pulls away the nose almost rocks a bit from left to right and then steadies its self. Is this something to be concerned over? I did a u-turn at around 50km/hour no problem.

    Thank you.

I did a u-turn at around 50km/hour no problem. Worn lower control arm bushings maybe, or bent rims. Could be more serious, or less, have it checked out first.

    Thank you.

I did a u-turn at around 50km/hour no problem. Could be a number of issues, probably something small like shocks, but as mentioned rather have it checked by TWT or someone similar.

    Thank you.
