i have a 2003 yellow se3, with 70,200 miles (all highway) currently. I bought the car as a former demo with 9,000 miles. I've had very little problems with my se3 despite all ive read about others on this forum. I had a problem with the ac compressor (it just stopped working) at 20,000 miles but was replaced for free under warranty. At 35000 miles my blinkers stopped working and they replaced several things on the car to figure out what it was. They found out what it was after 2 days, i got many things like the security system replaced for free so i wasnt mad. Besides a speaker busting, ive had NO other problems and definitly consider mine very reliable (much more than my BMW convertible and many previous nice cars, etc.. I love this car so much, fits me perfectly as a single 20's male, and gets lots of attention getting gas. Ive read many bad things about the FREELANDER on here, but i can say that my car has had NONE of those problems. I live on a mountain so in the winter i need a car to go up a steep unplowed slope with least 2 inches of snow and this car does it WITHOUT a problem. It travels right up the hill in 2nd gear with minimal slippage, and i even tested it and stopped it completely on steep slope with 4 inches/icey condition and it took the road quickly with almost no slippage, amazing to me. With 70,000+ now, my car still looks flawless (im a prof. detailer and this car brings me many new clients at gas stations) and i can honestly say it drives as smooth as it did with 20,000 miles. I give the car its REGULAR maintaince every 6,000 miles which can be more expensive but COME ON its a Landy, not a Chevy. The removable hard top is easy for me to take off alone, though others may need 2 people. The Harmon Kardon sound system sounds great even at top volume. My SE3 is so easy to drive no matter what the weather is, i never have to worry on my long commute.
