    Hey guys,
    As stated in my earlier post im a newbie looking for a Freelander2. I've seen this advertised on fleabay and as it it local to me(15 mile away) I plan to take a look this look. What do you guys think?
    The only thing that worrys me so far is the price in that it seams on the cheap side??
    The garage itself seams to have good reviews on cargurus,autotrader,Facebook etc.
    Ive enclosed a link to the car below. Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Gareth

    Looks nice. Give it a smash down some country lanes and through a few potholes. See how she fares

    The belts will need doing due to time 10yrs or 150,000 use gates, also get underneath and check the PAS return pipe for corrosion as these can and do leak sooner or later, mine as just done it, costing me £150 in parts no labour as I am doing the job myself, helex try and find out when it was last service oil change etc, handbrake will most likely need adjusting, make sure the front a rear sensors are working,
