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


We've had our "hippo" since 2005 and purchased it with only 12k miles on it.
We now have over 110k and we've loved driving every mile with this SUV.
We did a lot of research before we made the purchase and knew about the many problems that others have reported with this vehicle, but we have been so pleased with the reliability and fun-ness of the Freelander.
We have not experienced any of the frequent problems that are reported.
Neither my wife or I take very good care of the mechanics of our cars.
We usually go 10-15k between oil changes, we've never changed the transmission fluid, and sparkplugs were replaced for the first time at 95k.
It still runs great and is very reliable.

Best Features

Hill Descent, Stadium Seating, GPS Navigation, Traction Control, Reliablility, Ground Clearance, Heated Windscreen, Fun to Drive.

Worst Features

Its a bit noisy in the cabin while cruising on the freeway, HID headlamps.
