"I've owned a 2003 Freelander for 10 years and am finally getting rid of it after spending about 3x its worth in repairs. It served as a college car for my 2 kids so for that purpose it beat buying new ones for them. Biggest complaint is that things went wrong with it that should never happen to a "high end" car with this mileage - cracks in both front axles, power window controller died, automatic door lock controller died,a clogged drain under the wipers caused water to leak onto the floorboards, the roof leaked, the fuel pump conked out at 75K miles, etc. etc. If you don't live near a Land Rover dealer you may have problems getting other foreign car repair shops to work on one of these. And LR dealers charge you as if they were repairing a nuclear submarine instead of an internal combustion engine. Every time I see someone driving a new LR the old saying about a fool and his money parting ways comes to mind."

"Horrible. Friday the 13th kind of horrible. First year was great, exceptionally good looking , tight drive. Then everything starts breaking down, window motors , transmission F4, then my engine blew up. It blew up. Like went pow. Dealership just shrugs and charges a mint. The butt warmers do make waiting for the tow truck in the winter nice."

"This car is awesome, but the only complaints I have are first, that it isn't quite "tall person" friendly! The driver's seat doesn't quite go back far enough for a tall person! Secondly, I expected it to be a get-up'n'go car, but it accelerates very slowly. Fun to drive, good gas mileage for it's size. (17-22 mpg)"

"This car is guaranteed to have an engine failure, it's not a matter of if, it's when. They constantly overheat. Landrover will claim it's an issue with the coolant reservoir, just to drag it on till it's out of warranty. Then eventually it will overheat so bad it will blow a head gasket or slip a cylinder sleeve engines are over $9000 and most likely not even available. Run away from these cars. Other issues I had, broken window motors, bad fuel pump ($800) since it was in the gas tank, multiple brake jobs."

"Okay so I bought this suv at 65,000 miles on it and I just love it, can't get rid of it. It has approximately 146,000 miles right now and still runs like brand new. I took it off roading and just tears up the dirt! It might be little but don't underestimate its power of off roading! This suv might be small from the outside but its very spacious and has really good head room, even my friend being 6ft 7in can sit comfortably. I love the power that comes from the 2.5 liter v-6 engine, the torque on this car is monstrous, I have tested myself from 0-60 and I got it in 6.32 seconds. I highly recommend if you like off roading and the comfort of sitting nicely, I would get another if I could. The heated seats are amazing, they aren't too hot nor do they take forever to heat up. The design is really nice, I love the way Land Rover put this car together, easy access to change parts and very sturdy body. I haven't had any problems with the car and I don't think I ever will. I just wish I could get a manual transmission for this suv."
