  • electrical gremlins - 2002 Land Rover Freelander
    By -

    has already been out of service for 14 days - close to hitting lemon law requirements. numerous electrical problems- windows not working - heated seats going out - but most importantly - a/c system backup causes water to shoot out of dash vents! shorts out radio and a/c and eventually the battery!

  • complete failure - 2002 Land Rover Freelander
    By -

    a month after purchase with only 34000 miles I have to take it to the dealer for repair, after it reached 55000 , it has been trips to the shop, faulty parts and costly repairs that they say is not cover by the warranty, now at 80,000 i have to replace the transmition and the cooling system has a leak they dont know from where? if I keep driving I have to replace the engine, this is a well known issue with the dealer for this cars but they wont take responsability for the bad quality of the engine. Now after I spend $5000 for repairs I have to get rid off before the engine blows up! a toyota cost half of this one and last at least 250k miles!

    I have always like the Land Rovers but could not accept the 12-14 MPG of the larger Discovery or Range Rover. The Freelander fit my needs with many of the features I would expect from a Land Rover. Was surprised it lacked several features listed below in the "Suggested Improvement" section. Great car so far. Also had a great experience with the dealership sales staff.

    I feel safe in this vehicle, esp with my children. I like the wider wheel base, the reinforced side passenger doors, dual airbags. What I really like is the rear passengers sit up higher than the front for safety purposes. The body design is simple but sporty. Easy to drive and park. The real challenge will be this winter to be able to drive in the snow.

  • You havent lived until you own a LAnd R - 2003 Land Rover Freelander

    I have LOVED this little SUV. It is dependable and fun to drive. I also own a 2002 Mercedes and like driving my Land Rover just as much. If anyone is thinking about buying a Land Rover Freelander, you wont be disappointed. They have all the bells and whistles and I havent had any problems to date. I purchased it from a Salesman named Kevin in Asheville, NC. Dealing with Land Rover in Asheville and Kevin was a pleasant dealing. You havent lived until you own a LAnd Rover! :-)

  • Mine must have been the good one - 2002 Land Rover Freelander
    By -

    Ive seen all the reviews on the Freelander and I realize I was just lucky - mines been fairly trouble free in the five + years Ive had it. It hasnt been babied, either, but Ive also been picky about maintenance. But for snowy weather, its always been the best.

  • Fun - 2004 Land Rover Freelander
    By -

    This car is great - if its for you. My wife and I are young, no kids, but have a very large dog. We live in the midwest, so theres lots of snow in the winter and its hot in the summer. This car is perfect. Tons of storage with the seats folded down. Handles like a low-end sports car. And the 2004 had the interior improved to make it more Land Roverish. The outside was dramatically improved as well, it looks more like a Range Rover now. Just owning this car makes you want to drive it.

  • Dont even consider this vehicle - 2005 Land Rover Freelander
    By -

    I owned a 2003 Freelander and had to get rid of it. At 65K The head Gasket went. It was to Land Rover multiple times and they could NOT diagnose it. I had to personally tell them that the coolant was going into the oil because I took an oil sample. After they diagnosed the head gasket , they would not garantee the repair. The total for the repair was $2800. It ate brakes and rotors , I had electrical probs including the radio cutting out when it rained. I thought Land Rover was reputable and they would sell a reliable vehicle. I was wrong. I can go on and on . . .buying this vehicle was a MAJOR mistake.

  • Coolest SUV ever! - 2003 Land Rover Freelander
    By -

    The SE3 is Amazing. The whole idea of a convertable SUV is such a great idea. Ive never been much of a Land Rover fan but they sure won me over with this one!
