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

Review

I got my LR about 2 years ago. The reason I traded in my 96 Cherokee was I was worried it was going to start costing too much in repairs. Should have stuck it out because I have spent around $1000 already on my Freelander which is probably more than I would have spent on my Cherokee and I didn't have a car payment. I have had the brake pads and rotors replaced twice already. The dealer says it is normal for the Freelander because of the weight. Not good. Also the windshield wipers stopped working. Driver's side in a snow storm and passenger side in the pouring rain. No big deal to fix, but not a good sign of quality in my opinion. Wish I had driven my old Cherokee for a few more years.

Favorite Features

Heated leather seats, Harmon Karden sound system, looks - except I got the 17" wheels for the looks and the turn radius is very bad. My mistake though.

Suggested Improvements

Look into why the brakes wear in 12000 miles or less. Peppier engine.
