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


Bought this SUV used, and have had no problems yet. Vehicle was recalled once, and we spent 1hr 30mins at the dealer, then left with the entire vehicle smelling like gas. Fast for a 2.5L V6, handles like a go-cart, and comfortable for the driver. Passengers in the back seat suffer. Seats at near 90 degree angles, and are hard as concrete. Not good for people who grocery-shop with the family, as the cargo area doesn't have enough room for two weeks worth of meals. I've noticed lately that the back hatch is having trouble as well. When closed, the back glass doesn't go up correctly. Only thing wrong with it is the back left power window, which hasn't worked since we bought it. Otherwise great.

Favorite Features

Goes fast and can easily be maintained at high speeds. Power back glass a nice touch. Front seats comfortable. Radio interface, cd-changer, and steering wheel controls a must, and easy to use. Heated seats great for cold mornings. Makes no sound until you want it to.

Suggested Improvements

Power windows notoriously bad, back glass trouble going into frame when closing, remote-activated back glass inconvenient. Sounds like a sewing machine at idle (not entirely bad, but could be better). Back seats horrible for anyone without perfect posture, as well as cramped. Too small cargo spaces.
