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


Bought a loaner vehicle with 9,000 miles, so expected some minor cosmetic problems - only thing was the dash-mounted drink holder; replaced, no problem. Now have put 20,000 miles on vehicle and only problem I've had was the transmission, replaced under warranty. Amusing since this is a BMW-sourced item, and not a Land Rover part. Other than that no reliability issues. The dealer (North Point, Alpharetta) has been very good, no complaints with their service. Gas mileage is as expected, 17 mpg all city driving. In the real world the power is just fine for merge into highway traffic, take left turns on busy roads etc. Feels solid without typical SUV porkiness, comfortable ride.

Best Features

It's the perfect size, not too large but holds what we need on a daily basis, including car seat, stroller etc. I like the dual glove boxes, water bottle holders etc. Works great for us. Love the exterior styling. Handling is quite acceptable for an SUV.

Worst Features

Upgrade interior quality, full set of air bags, inprove AC system, more power would be nice. Don't change size, looks, handling, all great.
