Hello Editor-in-chief of Motoring World,
I have a 2000 Landrover Freelander, which has been the most problematic car I’ve ever own. I wonder if it is the car or the mechanic.
It started with overheating and they told me to wash the radiator, which I did. After that it will not start after parking it for some time and sometime I got stranded. I was made to change fuel pump twice and ever since they changed it the second time, my fuel gauge stopped working.
Last month, another mechanic diagnosed and asked me to change the injector, which I learn cost over N20,000. I am already thinking of selling off the car , because even if I change the injector, I don’t know what will be next.
I shall appreciate your professional advice in this regard. Thank you sir.
I am glad you contacted us. Your Landrover is not problematic. From your explanations and similar complaints we have received, you have been going to wrong mechanics. What I believe is wrong with your car is simply matter of setting. Unfortunately your mail did not mention which part of Nigeria you reside. If you are by any chance in Lagos, we shall recommend a mechanic workshop, where it would be put right for you. But I tell you this, if you don’t mind, your best place is Coscharis Landrover workshop. Coscharis is Nigeria’s franchise dealer for Jaguar-Landrover in Nigeria.
If you can get it to one of the company’s workshops, which are located across the country, your Freelander will be put right. If anything at all, your car’s fuel injector can be serviced, and it will serve again like new. We’ve received similar complaints regarding that particular brand of car, and all those who followed our advice are thankfully enjoying their car. Make sure the two fans are working. A diagnostic machine will be very handy.
