Nice car but needs refinement
By mattsfreelander on


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


For such a small practical car it gets
17 MPG around town...not good, makes us
feel guilty. The interior trim is
interesting looking but really shoddy
quality...the steering wheel loosens
the more we drive it...the windows
sound cheap rolling up and down and
make crackling noises...lots of rattles
have started to appear which seems a
shame this early on. I fell in love
with the car at a car show and had to
have one...it has been excellent on
vacations and back and forth to the
hardware store ...but just a little
cheap on quality for the money we paid
(24,995 with 5000 miles) and an
unnecessary gas guzzler.

Best Features

heated windshield/ 4wd seems to work well and suspension is great.

Worst Features

Better MPG. Less plastic more quality it is a landrover after all! Lights on the steering wheel controls. Cassette player and ability to play MP3s
