2003 Land Rover Freelander S 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
Handles great for an SUV and stops on a
dime. Good looks outside, simple
inside, but functional. Awesome in
foul weather and limited off-road use
so far. Great SUV, some minor
Brakes and handling. Smooth ride.
Great base stereo system. Full roof
rack with S model (additional charge;
higher models come standard with half-
rack, but its not as good, functionally
A/C heat fans sounds like a jet engine
when on highest setting. Doesn't
approach EPA highway mileage when
doing "real" highway speeds. Power
steering too taunt at parking speeds.
