  • When should I have Land Rover Freelander alignment checked? You know your Land Rover Freelander better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Land Rover Freelander to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Land Rover Freelander engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Land Rover? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Land Rover Freelander, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
