LR Freelander S
By Gylfaginning on
Vehicle
2002 Land Rover Freelander S 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
Review
A former owner of a 93' Jeep Cherokee Sport (one of the world-wide top ten, ever), I interpret the Liberty as an aesthetic offense (whatever the magazines say, "retro" was dead upon arrival). Moreoever, Chrysler dealers are Chrysler dealers; and the cheap extended warranty that they push does not compensate for the Rover's (true) warranty (with ABS [yes we know the Paul-Bunyan Off-R. excuse], etc.), build, handling, and style.
Favorite Features
Fairly-to-Great looks. Tremendous off- road capability (nearly as good as my old Cherokee). And it handles on-road much like my father's V. s40 (though it does need twenty more horses). The BMW auto- shift is a pleasure, though, again, it needs more ammunition from under the hood.
Suggested Improvements
1.5-2 inches higher; 210-220 hp; all SUVs should come equipped with roof-racks, STANDARD (forget the arm-rests, Motor Trend). Or, should all else fail, bring back the Defender!
