A real off road vehicle
By ThorsDad on
Vehicle2002 Land Rover Freelander S 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewLike most SUV buyers we purchased this
vehicle as a daily driver. That was
until Land Rover invited us to a free
off-road school. In case you didn't
already know, buying a Land Rover makes
you a member of their club. After a full
day of driving the off road vehicle park
in Hollister, CA we came to the
conclusion that the Freelander is not a
car nor a truck but a real 4x4 off road
vehicle. Without any prior off road
experience our group drove our stock
Freelanders over black diamond trails
with minimal coaching from our
instructors. Even veteran off-roaders
stopped and got out there cameras as we
traversed some extreme terrain. Best
quote of the day: "WOW!"
Best FeaturesThe combination of Traction Control and Hill Decent Control let even a complete novice go off road with ease. Lots of interior room.
Worst FeaturesThe Freelander has a very nice smooth little engine but it strains getting on the freeway and climbing very steep hills. The Freelander needs a few more horsepower to make it a great vehicle.
