2005 Land Rover Freelander SE 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
The Freelander has great visibility and layout. Very tall people cannot get into the cabin easily. Overtaking other vehicles is hard. Vehicle engine feels like a Diesel. Fuel consumption for the weight and slow speed is very high. However its weakest component are the brakes. Dealer says 20000km/14000miles is the norm.Then you have to replace not only the discs but also rotors.Heater and a/c very marginal !
Good traction in winter, great visibility.
better disc brakes, stronger engine, better heater, better air conditioning.
