2005 Land Rover Freelander SE3 2dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

I'd been looking for a compromise between a full-sized SUV, for off- roading and poor weather safety, and a sedan, for better milage and handling. The Freelander hasn't disappointed. Very smooth ride, with little to no body roll, great visibility, superior snow/mud/muck handling, and I'm still getting relatively decent milage (18-20 mpg). The styling certainly sets it apart from most other vehicles in it's class. Very unique interior material (Technical Fabric), with excellent seat support and comfort. Plus, the hardtop is easily removable, looking forward to adding many summer driving miles. The Freelander is the compromise that doesn't feel like one.

Favorite Features

Great interior, and the only hard-top SUV that doesn't ride like a surplus Jeep.

Suggested Improvements

My one gripe, the front cupholders are oddly placed (though I'm not sure where would be better...).
