A Nightmare in Sheep's Clothing
By Dale Booth on


2003 Land Rover Freelander SE 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)


Well, Where do I start - Land Rover ought to really be ashamed of the product they built. This engine design is a total joke. I had my Freelander approx. 1 year before I had to trade it in. The problem was with a leak of the engine coolant into the engine. This slow leak was unrepairable. The only TEMPORARY solution was a new engine for a cost of $10K, according to Land Rover-Jaguar of Houston. I had them put the SUV back together and drove it to the nearest TOYOTA dealership where I traded it for a 2005 Toyota 4Runner. It has been happy driving ever since. MY ADVICE TO ANYONE THINKING ABOUT PURCHASING A NEW OR USED LAND ROVER. DON'T DO IT; UNLESS YOU HAVE MONEY FOR REPAIRS.

Best Features

Interior/Exterior design.

Worst Features

Get rid of the engineers who designed the engine for the Freelander, now the LR2 & LR3.
