2003 Land Rover Freelander SUV SE3 2dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I purchased this car in 2003 because I wanted a sporty, fun and upscale SUV. Since then, I have had numerous problems with this vehicle. These problems include the engine not shutting off while no key in the ignition, severe alignment issues that could not be fixed by Land Rover and an A/C system that shoots ice out of the vents on hot days. I am very diappointed in this vehicle.


Best Features

Roomy interior, sporty look, great stereo system


Worst Features

Electrical system overhaul needed, heating and cooling very difficult to achieve, constant fogging of windows in winter

Review

We was looking for a small SUV for my wife (Ford Escape/Explorer) but came away with this and couldn't be happier. We've put a few miles on it now and have came away impressed. It took awhile to get used to the non- traditional interior placement of items. Driving is impressive, road conditions do not matter and it inspires confidence you're going to get to wherever you're going. We average 20.1 MPG which isn't bad since I'm used to 17 with my Explorer. Plus the 4 yr/50k mile warranty is nice. All in all we would buy again. We plan to use it 98% on pavment; the rest maybe for camping, fall foliage or something - nothing hard core.


Best Features

Looks, ability to go in inclement weather or places (AWD), solid feel, handling.


Worst Features

Better placement of controls, lower price, seat recline is knob operated.

Review

Filed Lemon Law on my vehicle! Ashamed that I had to give the vehicle up after a year. Had to take car over 13 times for brake squeak and got fed up. Electrical problems: Wipers ,back window, & radio shorted out. Back seat had annoying squeak when rode over bumps. Dealer could not fix problems. When shifting automatic, it was easy get gear shifter to get stuck between D & 4 on the gear shifter.


Best Features

I loved the truck. I liked the convertable aspect. Handled very well.


Worst Features

Need easier way to remove the hard top, was a hassle. Needs to come in better colors.
