The dash is interesting.

The plating may seem gaudy but not a horrible truck overall.

Looks capable and vomitable at the same time

John,
whilst the freelander petrol models were unreliable as hell, the TD4 later freelander 1 and the freelander 2 TD4 vehicles are very reliable and economic. Here the prtrol ones have no value (ie. a 2004 model gas one would be about 1000) and the equivelent diesel on would be 4-6000 depending on condition. as you can see quite a gap. They are not bad off road for a vehicle what is essentially a saloon with a lift kit! A TD4 freelander one will go most places that a series 3 will go.
