2002 Land Rover Freelander S 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
My wife and I happened upon the
Freelander in the 2002 Vancouver Auto
The deal clincher occured when we test-
drove through a demanding off-road
track - it blew the other mini-SUV
competition (RAV4, CRV, Escape) away.
Then the on-road handling was also
extremely impressive, hugging the road
on fairly tight turns (although not as
good as the Audi A4 or BMW 325i but
better than the mini-SUV competition).
The ride is quiet and very comfortable.
We did ourselves a favour and got the
wood trim, which greatly improved the
appearence of the dash.
More detailed review after driving it
for a month.
On road and off-road handling.
Comfortable and commanding driving
position. Standard features like: AC,
ABS brakes, power-locks, anti-theft
More HP (about 25 more would be nice).
Better quality interior materials. Need
front centre arm rest. Side air bags.
