An In the Shop Van
By Brent McKee on
2004 Ford Freestar SE 4dr Minivan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)
I have had numerous electrical problems with my Freestar. I downsized from a Mavigator and knew that there would be a dramatic difference in comfort options. The mid-seats are very difficult to remove and the back seat is not comfortable for a average sized adult. I have had the vehicle in for service on eight different occasions with electrical problems; Ford has changed out the dash electronic twice and the passenger side power window motor once. I have never been so dissatisfied with a vehicle and based on this experience, I will now be looking a lot closer at imports.
The compartment design was well thought out. Lots of storage area.
Ford should concentrate on electrical problems. I wouldn’t be on this page if they had fixed the vehicle right the first time. Obviously, this problem is bigger that the engineers at Ford. Quality is job one.
