Review of the 2004 Ford Freestar

  • The Freestar has all the right safety and convenience features, but with equally well-appointed offerings from Chrysler, Honda, Nissan and Toyota, rebuilding Ford's place in the minivan segment won't be easy.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Plenty of safety and convenience features, sharp interior design, torquey V6 engines.

  • Cons

    Unimpressive fuel economy numbers, less horsepower than top competitors.

  • What's New for 2004

    The Freestar is an all-new minivan that replaces Ford's aged Windstar. Recognizing the increased competition in this segment, the company has incorporated must-haves like a fold-flat third-row seat, rear DVD entertainment system and a power liftgate, while adding new items like side curtain airbags that cover all three rows of seating and an available large-displacement V6 for hauling heavy loads.

I love how the Freestar handles. It's smooth ride is very similar to the Sienna and the two tone exterior makes it a very classy look. You forget your driving a minivan, except that you have so much room especially with the rear row tucked nicely into the floor.
