Freelander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,237 miles
After the steering system failed completely a week ago (reported separately, ODI# 10173809), the Land Rover dealer in san francisco replaced the rack and pinion assembly. Within 2 hours after I got the car back, the electric system failed completely while I was driving and the car stopped in the middle of traffic.
