2003 Land Rover Freelander S 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
I have owned/driven "SUVs" for 23 years
(Blazer-K5, Jeep-Cherokee, Pathfinder),
but the Freelander clearly performs
above the rest for handling, pure
utility, and fun to drive. After
20,000 miles, not one mechanical issue.
The cargo room is small, but will
suffice for runs to the hardware,
hauling one piece of furniture, or a
trip for four who pack light. I would
buy this car again without question.
Favorite performance feature is
Downhill Descent control. Favorite
passenger comfort features are the cup
holders in the dash, glove compartments
on both passenger and driver side and
pneumatic-assisted rear hatch opening
