Land Rover's next-gen Freelander is almost here, which means we'll finally be able to consign the current model to the ocean floor. We're not saying it's bad, mind you, but Yugo called, and it wants its quality-control back. The new model, with its Ford C1/P1 platform, cleaner shape, Volvo engines and (hopefully) LR3-level build quality, looks like it may just be able to cash the cheque the first generation forged and handed to a liquor-store clerk in Topeka. We're optimistic.
