I've recently purchased a 2001 V6 Freelander and am looking for a reputable/knowledgeable LANDROVER workshop in the Melbourne area.

Other than the LR dealers, can anyone suggest any good mechanics that know their stuff and don't charge the earth?

Give Alan at outback accessories in Seaford a call.

He is a keen 4b driver as well as knowing his stuff.

They managed to fix something that ABS, and Better brakes could not do with my truck this week... now to rip them a new arse, and get back my $700

I know someone who just sold their Freelander, had nothing but problems, perhaps he could have done with a Real Good Mechanic to..!

My next door neighbours timing belt snapped on him last week in his Freelander. He's not too happy at the moment!

Maybe it should have been changed at the correct intervals - they only break if the car has not been maintained correctly

apparently it was and was even serviced more frequently than the recomended intervals. The engine also cuts out intermittantly in hot weather.

O.k Chaz i will answer your question, try these guys:
Ritter Automotive 9808 0266
Range Rove Automotive 9874 3111
Rangie Automotive 9739 6989
AMV Land Rover 9870 9904
Roverland 9758 5777

These workshops are all specialists and know the landrovers well.
AMV do some wrecking as well and have access to many late model second hand parts as well as full workshop facilities.
My mate takes his V6 freelander to Ritter and claims them to be excellent with this car.
Hope this helps

Ritter have almost been Pioneers with the Rangie and Land Rovers. They were even doing Holden V8 conversions etc. Yes they would be a good choice.
