2003 Land Rover Freelander SE 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
Anyone who says this car is reliable simply has not had it long enough. After 2 years we had to replace 3 sets of brakes (every 17000 miles) the heater core, the thermostat, the antifreeze bottle and cap, the rear window, the moonroof,and to top it all off the engine. Although it was all under warranty, we were treated as second class citizens by not only the service department of our dealer, but by the land rover north america corporate offices as well. We find ourselves just waiting for the next thing to break. A friend that works in the service dept. Confided that the freelander is a nightmare to most who own it. Getting a lexus rx300 tomarrow. Get out while you can.
Great in bad weather.
Reliability, brakes, service, more head room, etc...
