The Remarkable Freelander
Almost nothing about the Freelander 1 was good. Almost everything about the Freelander 2 was.
The Freelander 2 has proven to be a very good vehicle in almost every way - great to drive, easy to park, and very reliable. We usually only do brakes and general servicing on them.
They rarely need anything else.
The Freelander is a remarkably capable "soft-roader". It's only real limiting factor is ground clearance.
