Lotus Elise's and MGF's alike were blighted by it, as well as the Rover/MG cars and the Landie Freelander.
Being an old Land Rover addict I know all about this engine in the Freelander. little bit of advice for anyone wanting to own a Freelander, go diesel, either the older 2.0 dti or the newer TD4, newer be persuaded by a salesman to get the 1.8 petrol, you'll regret it
