2005 Land Rover Freelander User Reviews
- Fun to drive, great in snow and mud
When I was set to purchase mine, I was moving from a 2001 lexus IS300. Read reviews here and seemed like most were either really bad or really good. The thing about reviews is that most people write them when they are mad,very few write them when they are good.
The Freelander has outperformed my expectations. The SE3 is perfect for me. I love the seats, the comfort the style and the fact that not everybody has one. I have only see 3 others during my 1 year of ownership.
I have heard of people having problems, but my 2004 (please note that some people tried pre 2004 vehicles) has not had an issue.
This things is well worth the money, and is a great price for all the benefits. If you want a couch seating, super fluffy, car-based, comfort SUV don't go with a LR, if you want something that is built for offroading and is great to drive then pick a LR Freelander.

- The style is great, very comfortable, it is great when you have to travel long distance
- There is no cons
Overall this freelander is better then any American car out there. You do not have to worry about something breaking down on it at all. If you take care of your car good then you won't have to worry about things breaking on it like the other reviews say. It is worth the money you pay for.

I own Freelander since 2002 and so far it worth every penny I paid for it. It drive it on snow and ice, never had a problem. No mechanical troubles either. This car is solid like a rock. Landrover service is also pretty good.

- Good engine (1900 diesel)
- Poor LR assistance. Atention with transfer box it crash at max 75000km
This LR are a lot of bad pices.
Electrical sistems: top window, watch, security alarm, lamps, etc
All inside plastics;
(atention the tranfer box(4x4) made an unormal demage on rear
tires after first 5000km)
I�m sorry Land Rover, you have a fantastic concept project veicule (Freelander) but you need change your pices supliers.

- Every week back to Westside Land Rover in Cleveland
We traded our '01 Volvo S80 for this piece of crap. It constantly breaks down, Go with a German car if you want something that lasts. Like an Audi or an BMW. When you buy a Land Rover you problems are far from over.
