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


I've had this Freelander almost a year and I love it. It is fun to drive, great in snow and mud, and doesn't look like every other small SUV. It is not as reliable as say a CRV (my wife's car) though. We have had no problems with the brakes so far (I put 10K since buying it used). The parts replaced so far though (under warranty at no cost) have been the rear window switch, driver's door lock, thermostat, coolant reservoir. Without a warranty that is $1200 worth of work. I like the fact that this SUV is faster and more fun than our CRV, but the gas mileage pales in comparison (I get 18-20). When the extended warranty runs out, I'll sell this car. Until then, I'll continue to enjoy.

Best Features

Heated seats, raised seats, performance in mud and snow (best I've ever driven)

Worst Features

Electrical, gas mileage, and seems like they could get more power out of that V6. It sounds like it is about to launch when you hit the gas, but then acceleration is only a bit more than CRV
