Second Impressions - after one month...

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


Having driven just over 1,000 miles in
a month I must say that our Freelander
is a winner. It is without doubt the
best handling SUV I've driven, hugging
the road like a BMW in tight turns.
It's traction is superb in slick
conditions. We've been off-road a few
times and our Freelander surprised
every time with its electrifying
performance. We improved upon the
already excellent seat comfort by
installing third-party armrest (found
through the internet). We also
installed full length roof rails
further improving the already stylish

Best Features

Best on road handling in its class and even more astounding off road. Very comfortable ride and commanding driving position. Excellent range of standard features in base model. Very European and unique styling.

Worst Features

Power is good, but would feel much better with 30 HP more. Automatic transmission ("D" mode) is not too responsive at slow speeds - have to use "S" sport mode. Reduce roll in tight turns. Climate control could be improved for North American conditions.
