2004 Ford Freestar Limited 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
Bought this vehicle used from a dealership. So far so good. Vehicle averages 17-19 mpg overall between a mix of 65% highway / 35% city driving. We almost opted not to get this car just because of all the negative mpg reviews. We test drove a 05 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT with cloth seats/ stow & go and were very close to purchase except for this Ford came to our attention with the same mileage and far more goodies (ltd package) for less. We have always owned GM vehicles, this is our first Ford. We also considered the Kia Sedona EX, but that model is near impossible to find for the same price. Ford won't let you down. I will say that we bought an extended warranty if anything happens..
heated leather seats, trip computer, fold flat 3rd row, factory 6cd in-dash changer stereo w/ (4) 6x8 speakers, ride quality, low wind noise, dual power sliding doors via remote, electronic climate control, cargo roof rack for extra storage(we camp alot in the summer)
mpg. The Dodge Gr Caravan SXT we test drove from for a weekend trip w/ the 3.8 V6 option got between 3-4 overall better mpg than this Ford. cd stereo buttons on Fords show wear quickly. 3rd row has no split fold
