A Subaru outback will get you anywhere and farther than a Freeloader will and it won't leave you stranded.
A friends mom bought a Freelander about 2 years ago (very low mile used car) and it has been NOTHING but trouble fro them ever since. Nothing major mechanical has broken 9it doesn't even get used in the snow though) but there's always a warning lamp lit on teh dash, the switches are always failing, and the ABS went on the fritz after 4months of ownership. The family is from a ritzy yuppie area of Portland, and she's the type of woman who has to "keep up with the Joneses" and she's payng for it.
Just because it says Land ROver doesn't make it a truck. These things make other LR's look like Toyota's in terms of reliability.
