Not A Good Purchase

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


This car got "great" reviews by the auto magazines when I was looking to buy this car in 2002. We have had the transmission blow, which apparently Land Rover knew they should have recalled but sat silent and did nothing, then we had the brakes and air conditioning blow several times, then finally, the engine blows as I am driving it to get its annual service! We are now told that because the Freelander is no longer in production, the engine will be 'very difficult' to find and may take a month or so to locate... then Land Rover tells us that they will not pay for a new engine but will give us a $4500 "credit" towards buying a new Land Rover! Unbelievable.

Best Features

Small SUV and easy to drive

Worst Features

Interior is spartan and not comfortable. Gas mileage is ridiculous and not acceptable. "gas smell" when driving, and all of the mechanical problems.
