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


Review

This is the second Ford minivan I have purchused and I feel safe on the highway and around the city. Confort is outstanding for a minivan along with a quite tight ride better then any other minivan. The look of the 2004 Freestar stands apart from the sameold bullet looking style of other minivans, It looks in a class of it's own with stylish body sculpturing, headlighting all in a hermeticly attractive look. I feel proud driving the Ford Freestar and take advantage of any chance to show it off, But that is something that Freestar does well by itself.


Favorite Features

The look and feel of a Luxury vehical along with the safety and security that has come to be with Ford products.


Suggested Improvements

Cons: With all the technology built into the Freestar, I am suprised that the headlight bulbs are the same old halohgens and not the Xenons.

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


Review

Not a van person but I love the Freestar. I compared it to Honda and Toyota minivans and more bang for the buck. Test drove a SES with 16 inch wheels on the highway with wind gusts to 70 mph and very stable. Ordered the SES with 17 inch wheels and stability is even better. Love the room, safety features, acceleration, looks and the quiet ride.


Favorite Features

Sporty good looks and quality build


Suggested Improvements

For handling I would suggest an independent rear suspension.

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


Review

Our new 2004 freestar is much quieter and the 4.2 liter power plant is much more reponsive than the 3.8 engine of our2000 windstar.The instrument cluster is much nicer in the freestar and the fold down rear seats will eliminate many hernia operations


Favorite Features

the fold down bench seat and the fold up captains seats. auto dimming rear view mirror. Low tire pressure warning system


Suggested Improvements

none at this time.

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

smooth ride, rear seat into the floor, nice look, automatic set side and rear view mirrors, seat, pedals and steering wheel, and heated seats.


Suggested Improvements

electric opening for rear tailgate, and side door windows to go down, and come with shades, sunroof and navigation

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


Review

We bought the Limited fully loaded and with DVD add-on. My wife likes the easy foldup middle seats, and the pop-in-the-floor rear seat. The steering wheel controls are very good, the interior styling looks much like a BMW, and the center-dash controls are very good too. She likes the separate driver/passenger auto-air setting. As the husband, I like my wife to be driving with the 2nd generation air-bags, the air-canopy systems and the self-sealing tires. We traded in a 3yr old Windstar w/ 26K in order to get this van.


Favorite Features

Split driver/passenger air controls Leather interior Fold-down back seat Good engine power Best minivan air-bag system on the marked


Suggested Improvements

Make the middle row seats fold into the floor.
