2002 Land Rover Freelander S 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Like most SUV buyers we purchased this vehicle as a daily driver. That was until Land Rover invited us to a free off-road school. In case you didn't already know, buying a Land Rover makes you a member of their club. After a full day of driving the off road vehicle park in Hollister, CA we came to the conclusion that the Freelander is not a car nor a truck but a real 4x4 off road vehicle. Without any prior off road experience our group drove our stock Freelanders over black diamond trails with minimal coaching from our instructors. Even veteran off-roaders stopped and got out there cameras as we traversed some extreme terrain. Best quote of the day: "WOW!"

Best Features

The combination of Traction Control and Hill Decent Control let even a complete novice go off road with ease. Lots of interior room.

Worst Features

The Freelander has a very nice smooth little engine but it strains getting on the freeway and climbing very steep hills. The Freelander needs a few more horsepower to make it a great vehicle.
