2003 Land Rover Freelander SE3 2dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
i bought my se3 at 34,000 miles as my first car in 2007. after recently selling the car, i now realize how lucky i was to have such a reliable car. the only time i had to take the car in during the 4 years i owned it was to get the get the oil changed (which is expensive because it will only accept synthetic oil barf).
towards the end of my relationship with the car however (aprox. 74,000 miles), engine lights began coming on due to an ABS sensor which costs $540 dollars for just the part itself!
I also have read that these cars dont usually last much longer after 100,000 miles.
my suggestion is to obviously buy this car with low miles in order to have an awesome car experience.
it can drive over ANYTHING, it is a very fast SUV, very comfortable inside, the window buttons are in the center which is always fun as you watch your passengers panic, also the detachable roof option is a must.
