LR Freelander S
By Gylfaginning on


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


A former owner of a 93' Jeep Cherokee
Sport (one of the world-wide top ten,
ever), I
interpret the Liberty as an aesthetic
offense (whatever the magazines say,
"retro" was dead upon arrival).
Moreoever, Chrysler
dealers are Chrysler dealers; and the
cheap extended warranty that they push
does not compensate for the Rover's
(true) warranty (with ABS [yes we know
the Paul-Bunyan Off-R. excuse], etc.),
handling, and style.

Best Features

Fairly-to-Great looks. Tremendous off- road capability (nearly as good as my old Cherokee). And it handles on-road much like my father's V. s40 (though it does need twenty more horses). The BMW auto- shift is a pleasure, though, again, it needs more ammunition from under the hood.

Worst Features

1.5-2 inches higher; 210-220 hp; all SUVs should come equipped with roof-racks, STANDARD (forget the arm-rests, Motor Trend). Or, should all else fail, bring back the Defender!
