The diesel engine chosen for 2008 Freelander 2 is an all-new 2. Just wondering if there is actually a fault somewhere. The six-cylinder engine provides decent rather than startling performance: Land Rover claims 0 to 60 mph in 8. Roof rails at the very most should cause about 5% degridation of performance there are many ultra fuel efficient cars on the road with roof rails fitted! In heavy urban traffic, Land Rover engineers have measured fuel savings as high as 20 percent. Im now 1200 miles in and have started looking at the fuel economy. In my experience cars get pretty close to the quoted figure. Land Rover engineers are also collaborating with tyre suppliers to drive improvements to fuel economy through reduced rolling losses.
Permanent all-wheel drive works through a Haldex clutch pack that's mounted in front of the rear differential. Admittedly it does have a full spare and roof rails fitted, but I cant see that they should make that much difference. There is also a driver-selectable sport mode, for livelier performance. A new gearshift indicator light in the instrument pack advises the driver when to change gear if a higher gear will allow the vehicle to operate more fuel-efficiently. Our 2008 Auto in the book gives 35mpg. The body is a five-door monocoque structure, with a high level of torsional rigidity that benefits refinement, comfort and handling on-road as well as ensuring the vehicle is fit for serious off-roading.
Additional services we can offer are Warrantywise Warranty upgrades for up to 36 months and Supagard Paint and Fabric Protection. The cold weather is a good point. Cheers Paul Don't be so cynical. I think i'll take it back to the dealer as I bet it needs an engine management sw patch. Combined fuel economy is 25.
An efficiency loss of 25% sounds like a fault to me. There is no low range, but the vehicle is equipped with hill-descent control and Terrain Response, which has four selectable modes that vary throttle sensitivity, the levels of traction, stability, and hill-descent control, and Haldex preload, depending on conditions. When next filling up, fill up again until the pump cuts off, take a note of the litres used, and calculate against the trip computer mileage.

With my 52 plate Freelander S In the technical data in the back of my owners hanbook for 2. I dont actually expect to get the same figures the manufacturer quotes, but I would of thought that with careful driving it should get 85 - 90% of what is quoted, which is what I have seen with previous vehicles. Tyre characteristics including rolling resistance are optimised for the entire range of available tyre sizes on Freelander 2 models.
Duchy Autos are a credit broker and not a lender. Cheers Paul Click to expand. Other interesting technologies include a new full-time intelligent 4x4 system for superior traction and better on-road fuel economy, and the patented Gradient Release Control, which improves driver confidence and control when releasing the brakes on steep and slippery slopes. The benefits of transverse fitment include improved interior package and safety performance. In terms of fuel efficiency, consumption is improved from 37.
The cold weather is a good point. Appointments aren't essential but it's always best to check that the car is still available before you travel. This refers to the fact that 85 per cent of the vehicle is reusable or recyclable, while a further 10 per cent by mass is recyclable or recoverable.

The rest of the kilometers were in the city 10 percent , in heavy traffic 10 percent , and in the suburbs 0 percent. Moreover, in additional tests, Land Rover engineers have measured fuel savings approaching 20 per cent in heavy urban traffic.
