Under Ford's tutelage, Land Rover may finally have its maddening execution problem licked once and for all. For example, the original Freelander was a good idea, and had a decent enough design, but the unspeakable execution of it was redeemed only by a generous warrantee program and a large-enough pool of gullible yuppie sots. This time, however, LR is gunning for greatness, basing the next-generation Freelander on the flexible Ford/Volvo C1/D1 platform (Volvo S40, Mazda3, etc.) and looking upward at the LR3 for inspiration. It's worth a trip to the $0.50 bet window.
