Been there done that
By Shermie on


2002 Land Rover Freelander SE 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)


Purchased a brand new Freelander and it is the only regret I have in my life. So you can assume exactly what kind of ownership experience my family and I had to endure for over 5 years. When the motor finally dies at 58Kmiles, and the transmission had been slipping for 1 year, the car still smelled brand new when it was sold for scrap parts. Never ever buy a Freelander, unless you have a high tolerance for a cheaply built, outsourced funky japanese tranny and a Chiness built motor with epoxy glue holding the cylinder sleeves together. The 5 years of missing coolant was nothing compared to what this car did to my life and finances. Pure junk.

Best Features

Looks and ride. Seating position.

Worst Features

This car needs a different transmission and motor. Plus it also could use improved electrical parts such as door motors, etc. Especially the leaky and noisy sunroof.
