Like Lemons? You'll Love Freelanders!

Vehicle

2005 Land Rover Freelander SE 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Computer/electrical problems right off the bat. HCD light keeps coming on (very bad sign) and engine sputtering. In the shop 4 times in less than 2 months. Left stranded 2 times in freezing weather - dead as a door nail. Horrible brakes, slides bad. Head room for people under 3 (three) feet tall. Land Rover road-side service is undependable - took 4 hrs to show up. Radio is grainy and weak. CD player/ radio has broken twice. Leather/door fabric gets dirty very easily and does not clean up well. Problems with Freelander range from serious safety issues to the unbelievably annoying. My 1997 Altima had less trouble. Should've bought a Honda CRV! Trading this piece of junk in next week. $27,000 mistake!

I am absolutely in love with my Land Rover Freelander and have recommended it to many. For me, the ride and it's ability surpass any shortcomings. Particularly it's weight and gas mileage. I highly recommend this vehicle.

Review

Watch out! I had two freelanders (first replaced it was so bad), seccond one in shop all the time. Land Rover Customer service is horrible, they refuse to work with you at all. Bad Transmission, failed windshield wipers,seat came off rails (twice), sound system failed, windows stopped working, Brakes squeek, streeing wheel squeeks, engine rattles....... They never even attempted to make it right. I even had strangers come up to me and ask if mine was as bad as theirs. I think they rated as one of the worst SUVs in the world.

Review

The 2005 Freelander is an overall excellent car to have. It has a mixture of sportiness, luxury, and refinement that you can't find in any of its competitors. Its great in the snow and off-road while still having great on-road performance. It is very stylish and feels great to drive. The only complaint that i have is that it is about 20hp short of what it should have. Overall i love it!(looks great in silver or black).

Review

The car has stalled 2 times and the dealer is unable to find the problem. Lights go on on the dash board such as breaking and traction control and the dealer has been unable to fix it.
