2004 Land Rover Freelander HSE 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
We purchased our Freelander not three days ago, and we love it already! Filled it up with gas after leaving the dealership (87 octane) and drove around the city for a bit, then on the highway to our hometown. We drove for around 2 hours on the highway plus another hour of stop-and-go driving, and STILL got 20 mpg when we were all said and done. That was the first day. She is still clean and running like brand new!
GREAT tranny...nice low gears. Features...WOW! Heated front/rear screens, 5-speed auto, 87 octane fuel, great mileage so far (20 combined mpg), great workmanship on doors and thick windows, silent at 80 mph, no wind-wandering from gusts.
Make it bigger...wider. Power seats would be nice. More dealers (I am two-plus hours from mine). Move the rear seat more aft...who needs the storage in the "trunk" anyhow?
