2002 Land Rover Freelander SE 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
This car is everything I wanted in a
min-SUV and more. Only a couple minor
complaints. First, watch your head when
you get in. I have to remember to duck.
Second, the driver's seat is fixed in
vertical position. There is not much
extra head room once you are in, and
the rear-view mirror blocks a large
portion of your outside field-of-view.
Takes some getting used to. That said,
the Freelander's on-road handling is
superb. It drives like a sports car,
and it seems to have plenty of power
for my needs, even fully loaded with
the family. It cost a little more than
I wanted to spend, but I definitely
feel bathed in luxury. Can't wait to
try it off road.
Great looks, leather interior, quirky
control knobs and switches, in-dash pop-
up cup holder, keyless entry, power
windows and door locks.
Rear disk breaks, gas mileage, seat
height adjustment, add floor mats to
already impressive list of standard
