I currently drive a gas guzzeling USA made SUV – 127,000K & a bad head gasket. I need to find something ASAP. I found an 03 Land Rover Freelander SE3 with only 62,000 miles on it for ,990 at my local Land Rover/Jaguar dealership. I've always wanted a Land Rover, I am a full time student & a single mom. I need better gas milage (currently my dodge gets 12-14 MPG) & something that will last me 2-3 years til I graduate & get my degree.
Land Rovers get a bad rap from a lot of people. But they're still in business & people still buy them. So why do they?
It seems like only the people with complaints are willing to give their opinion.
Are there any Land Rover Freelander owners out there that can give me a TRUE account of this vehicle.
I've checked ratings and reviews and they are all over the map… some say "best ever!" while others say "crap!"
All I want is a nice looking lil' 4X4 – that will last til I'm done w/ school!
P.S. don't suggest toyota – can't afford it
