2004 Ford Freestar Minivan Cargo Van 4dr Minivan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought the van with 260,000 and only thing I have had to replace was brakes, alternator, and a water pump. Everything works great. Going to try and keep her going for another 100,000 miles

2004 Ford Freestar Minivan SEL 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have a 4.2 l sel that is almost ready to roll 200k. I read the reviews on the transmission mine is original at 200k. I had the tranny flushed every 50k miles and done maintnance and here we are. The van has been exceptional. So if you take care of your car and do maintnance your car will take care of you. This van has a lot of negative reviews but has been great for me and my family. Im willing to bank i will get my freestar over 250k and will report back when I do. Outstanding vehicle.

2004 Ford Freestar Minivan SEL 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I wish I never bought this van... Transmission failed 3 times!!!. Driving 65 miles per hour then all of a sudden fail. Always in the shop every month for something. Good looking van but it is actually junk and scary
to use.


Worst Features

Ford should recall the transmission.. there was no warning that is going to breakdown.

Review

Been a ford man my whole life. Never owned a van till now. Bought a 2004 Freestar over a month ago. Got a good deal had 178,XXX miles on it yet drives like it has 10 miles on it. I did have to put new brakes and rotors on the front. And replace the drivers side CV axle. This is very minimal repair for a vehicle with that many miles on it. The trans runs very smooth and it is the original, I must have gotten lucky after reading the reviews and knowing very well about Fords trans problems. I love it. I haven't even used all the features this van has yet. The previous owner had to keep it in a garage, it's rust free and I live in MI. Good looking and a pleasure to drive.


Best Features

Comfort overall in and out.


Worst Features

Make it easier to replace license plate bulbs.
