2002 Land Rover Freelander S 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
This new Rover is so much fun to drive.
Was odd to get use to the "high"
seating Rover puts in its cars, but
after that it was great! This blows all
other mini-utes out of the water as far
as base options, road handling and
drivability. This SUV drives like a
sports car. The road noise is pretty
low and the engine VERY quiet. The
Rover dealer was the best too.
No "vultures" swarming you as you exit
your car. They were pleasant, asked if
we needed help and left us alone
(unlike Toyota). Worked well with us
and gave us a fair deal in les than 2
hours (including 2 test drives!) They
were real pros!
Low road noise, sports car like
handling, head room, BMW transmission
and the "get up" it has compared to
other mini-utes. HARMON/KARDON upgrade
stereo is WELL worth it!
New gas cap, arm rests in front, easier
to read guages.
