Owned 6 years, traded for a Hyundai
By capecodrondo on
Vehicle2005 Land Rover Freelander SE 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewI purchased my Freelander brand new in 2005.
I loved the handling and ride but over the years found the vehicle to be gas-hungry, under-powered and of poor build quality.
Constant electrical problems including a repeated problem with windshield wiper switches.
After having driven Jeeps for many years I was surprised to get stuck in the Freelander during snowstorms that the Jeeps handled well.
I traded for a Hyundai Veracruz two years ago and found it a much more reliable vehicle.
The Veracruz (now a long body Santa Fe) is better in the snow than my Rover was and is an all around more civilized vehicle.
Best FeaturesHeated windshield, hill descent control
Worst FeaturesThe Freelander was a mistake for Rover. I have not heard good things about its successor model, either.
