The Critics are WRONG!

2004 Land Rover Freelander SE3 2dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Critics of this cool little SAV were WRONG. I signed the dotted line to purchase, then read the reviews and became nervous. All of my fears were unwarranted. Performance? Spirited performance is how Land Rover describes it and they're 100% right. True, it's a small displacement V6 which means that the upper rpm range is where the fun is! Leave the shifter in SPORT mode and FUN. Mash the throttle from the light and it zips from 0-60 in 8 seconds. Try this in a Trailblazer. Handling is very good in dry and especially wet weather. It loves the curves and handles them with confidence. Sluggish at times? Top speed was around 125 - left a Tahoe a Navigator and a Civic Si in the dust!

Favorite Features

Removable top, heated seats stay on after the pulling the ignition key (until you open the door) Nice for cold and windy days. Harmon Kardon sub woofer really thumps. 9 speakers. Range Rover-like headlamps. Rear wiper comes on automatically when in reverse (while front wipers are on).

Suggested Improvements

Manual transmission! More interior lights. Not many more complaints. I love this vehicle!!! GET ONE!!
