    Default Anybody in Port Elizabeth?

    Anybody that drives past Webuycars in PE? I would like some more photos of a 2001 Freelander 1 standing there and the phone nr for a salesmen. It is impossible to ring the branch, and the general phone nr goes through to central help desk. So you can't ask any specific questions.
    I'm in West Coast so can't just pop in to have a look. Bloody useless...

    I'd suggest you read up on the Freelander 1 1st... They're known for reliability and electrical problems..... Rather if you have to go the Freelander route go for the Freelander 2....

    Thanks, well aware yes. Have owned a Fl2 for 5 years and 160k trouble free km. But when they get older repairs can become expensive. One word, Haldex.

    FL1 in TD4 and Getrac not too bad, but if things go wrong plenty of spares available. Main thing to monitor the Viscous unit on rear propshaft.

    🤣😂 Actually the MG now done 10000 trouble free km. The RR done 45000km mostly through Sourthern Africa. "Mostly" trouble free 😁. But never had to go into a garage apart from shocks and tires.
    The bloody KJ can't do 1000km without breaking down. Had to be rescued 3 times in 15000km. Engine out twice. But will now be repaired and sold. The VM engine is rubbish.

    My RR Classic could basically not do 20km without a breakdown, so I have that T-Shirt. The VM motors have a bad reputation, I think none was worse that the 3.1 in the WJ, luckily I dodged that bullet!
