Land Rover's original MK1 model Freelander was a great case study in perseverance. The first cars were well styled but never that well built or even that great to drive. Fortunately the company acted quickly and developed the Freelander nameplate, giving it constant updates and infusions of cash. The second generation Freelander 2 was a whole lot better but it had a tough time keeping on top of a rapidly developing market. With a whole lot of new and very good market entrants, the baby Land Rover really had to look sharp.
It was first launched way back in 2006 and six years later, remained on sale with a replacement still three years away. Land Rover needed to give this car a last lease of life - and did so. Does buying one of these 'last-of-the-line' 2012-2015 Freelander2 models on the used market makes sense? Or is this one best left alone?
The Land Rover Freelander 2 was on sale for a long time but never really outstayed its welcome. Right though to 2015, it felt a smart, relevant and desirable vehicle. That's why buying one of these last-of-the-line versions is still a very viable proposition. Land Rover's reliability record isn't the greatest, it has to be said, but by 2012, most of these issues had been pretty much sorted. This car might still not be quite as hassle free as owning a Toyota RAV4, but if you can negotiate the odd hiccup, there's a whole lot of recompense about Freelander 2 ownership.
