A bit of a niche one this but if you're after an ABS Modulator for the Land Rover Freelander 1 ... wish it had have been this price a few months ago when I needed one!

You should really get a good third party warranty. Touch wood my Rangie Sport never broke when I had it, but my mates Vogue broke every other week.

Is there such a thing as a good car warranty? I thought they were all fairly crappy Inc Warrantywise

Heat added, good price if you need one, might fit other vehicles as well.

I remember having the ABS module done by Ford on my old Focus ST, not covered under manufacturer warranty even though the car was only 2 years old with less than 20k miles!! Ford used to charge £1500 for it, but luckily they changed the pricing just I had it done but it was still £660!!

It says FL1. If that means the original, it's for 10+ y/o cars. Pick one up for a couple of grand.

Mind you, I agree with the warranty comment (if you can get it!). Those original FLs were notoriously unreliable. The BMW diesel engine was the best of a poor bunch.

How can the ABS module not be under warranty at that age? What did they blame it on?

He was on his 6th set of tyres and they replaced the shocks 4 times already

It amazes me the Freelander never made the recent "Top 25 most unreliable cars" list.

Still, Landrover had SEVEN other entries, 5 Range Rover models and 2 Discos.

BTW, do the rear windows still fall out?? A big design flaw in the early FL's; it is why they are only ever loaded onto a car transporter facing forwards.

They said it was a wear and tear item as it was linked to the brake system!!

I was selling the car at that time and as well as that issue I also had badly worn inside front tyres due to the terrible quality front wishbones they used at the time where the bushes were oil filled and only lasted a year. Once the oil dried up the wishbones pulled in under normal driving effectively toeing in the front tyres which made them scrub badly.

Tyres had only done 4k miles and I had to swap them both. Also needed the oil diaphragm doing so all in all it cost me £1750 just prior to selling.

Quick ish car but had lots of issues and Ford were rubbish all the time. Glad I've found a decent brand of car now!!

You were nicer than I would have been!

Not a bad price.

ECU testing to have yours rebuilt for £165+vat is also worth a shout, they offer a lifetime warranty too.

Ford quite literally pulled your pants down and did you over. They had me in the past too. However once bitten twice shy as they say.
Pad and discs are consumables. Pumps, sensors, reservoirs etc are not.

yes it has perfectly working indicators, unlike the Audi drivers round here these days.

Had 4 BMWs now (Mrs has a 3 series as well) and the dealer we use is awesome, customer service levels that Ford need to adapt.

Could do with changing my username, not sure if you can though.

Since the new website update we've had the ability to change our usernames, once every 6 months I think it is. Just click profile>settings>change name.

I guess with BMW being a more prestige brand you'll get better service but that's reflected in the price I guess. Although Ford clearly weren't in your case ;).
