2003 Land Rover Freelander SE3 2dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
The vehicle is fun to drive and handles well in adverse weather conditions.BUT it has a few problems, like the brakes wear out faster than any other vehicle you only get about 24000 miles out of a set of brakes and i don't do a whole lot of braking. I came to find out from other freelander owners that the brakes tend to heat up fast and then it set off your traction control warning. it tends to create more of a problem in the summer.The gas mileage for an suv this size is not the greatest.one of the biggest problems is you can only get the filter from a landrover dealer you just cant take it to the nearest jiffy lube to have your oil changed.it also doesnt have alot of room for car seats .
I like the over all design of the vehicle .the vehicle handles well snd is fun to drive.
the vehicle needs more head room.The fuel economy needs to be improved.the oil filters need be something that evry jiffy lube carrys and not some thing you have to take up to the dealer.The issue with th ebreaks needs to be taken care of.the way the vehicle shifts is horrible.
