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


Bad weather of any kind, this LR did not put one wrong foot forward. I also thought the Freelander was handsome, and unique among all the RAV4's and CR-V's. The gas mileage for a small ute was appalling. Some niggling problems with LR, even covered under warranty, were an inconvenience. $100 oil changes made me sick-a workaday Rover 2.5 V-6 really needs synthetic oil from new? If you need to be unique, go ahead but be warned. Otherwise, keep looking!

Best Features

All-weather handling, distinct styling.

Worst Features

Better mileage, better AC, how about some quality control? My Freelander's CPU wasn't even programmed for US use!
