2003 Land Rover Freelander SE 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

We wanted a car that wasn't a Ford Escape or Jeep Liberty and found the Freelander. It's a tad on the small side, but also a lot of fun and can climb a cliff in either direction. However, since buying (new) we've had all 5 window regulators replaced, the sunroof twice, all 4 brake rotors warped and had to be replaced, and most recently the car quit completely, with 6 different error codes in the computer, most notably that the camshaft position sensor had failed. The dealer treats us like poor cousins to the LR3 and Range Rover owners and we can't get a loaner, even for the latest issue. Bottom line, it's a fun car, but if you don't have a warranty, don't buy it.

Favorite Features

Off road capability, heated seats and windshield, hill descent control, uniqueness.

Suggested Improvements

How about taking some of that FoMoCo build quality you used at Jaguar and applying it to Land Rover? And the electrical system should be "The Son of Lucas."
