Don't buy into the disgruntled naysayers

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


I got one of the first Freelanders in
the USA.
The people who have had problems are
very vocal, as is human nature... but
there are TONS of these running around
with no problems at all.
If you want something to just drive and
ignore, don't get one. If you plan to
get something for ENJOYMENT you'll love
this thing.
I routinely go off-road and in all the
trips I've done I've run right around
stuck Jeeps, Discoveries and made a
Defender look silly trying to climb a
hill behind me.
Some of the info on Edmunds is wrong
though- Do your homework to get more
accurate info.

Best Features

Heated windscreen is the best invention in recent automotive history. The traction control is amazing if you know how to use it. It's actually quite quick if you use sport mode on the trans or manually shift.

Worst Features

The tyres they come with on the 17" rims are great- the ones on the 16" wheels are terrible. To go off-road, you really need more aggressive tyres. The KV6 engine is so high tech it's unbelievable, but the HP and torque aren't what they should be.
