2003 Land Rover Freelander SE 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
I have owned this vehicle for 5 months
and 4000mi. and have no reliablity
problems to report. This vehicle is
really fun to drive on paved surfaces
which is unique because it awesome in a
light duty off road roll as well. I
recently took it to a local off road
park with my wife and we had a blast.
The little monster climbed and
descended 40% grades. Its really fun
all four wheels engage. We were
surounded by dedicated off road
vehicles (not street legal)and although
we did not attempt some of the
punishing obstacles they did (self
preservation), I'm sure we could have
given them a run for the money if we
My favorite feature is that I really
enjoy driving this vehicle. Im 5'-11",
185lbs and the seats provide ample
support for long drives. Also, I don't
feel concerned about getting stuck if I
have to turn off the pavement or drive
through some mud or snow.
I suggest that the rear cargo space be
extended by at least 6 inches. Also
the head room in the front seat should
be a couple of inches higher.
