Review of the 2005 Ford Freestar

  • The Freestar has all the right safety features, but with better appointed, more refined minivans available from Chrysler, Honda, Nissan, Toyota and even Kia, it ultimately doesn't measure up.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Plenty of safety features, upscale looks inside and out, roomy interior, dealers' willingness to discount.

  • Cons

    Unrefined powertrains with less horsepower and worse fuel mileage than most competitors, low-grade interior materials, hard-to-remove second-row seats, can't get a navigation system.

Transmission issue

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Ford Freestar SEL 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

there is a well documented transmission/cruise/torque converter/PCM relationship issue I have experienced. Tranny blew and dealer says not torque converter to blame. It was a sudden and catastrophic failure.




Love it!

I love this van. It gets good gas mileage (23 mpg) and is very comfortable. I just drove it on a 1000 mile trip and had a blast!

Vehicle: 2005 Ford Freestar SE 4dr Minivan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)

This has been a good experience for me. The only problem I've had was the transmission quit at about 82,000 miles and it cost me 1,800 to rebuild I have talked to other owners with the same problem. They should call a recall. I have saved my repair bill. I am a senior citizen and had to borrow money to have it fixed. But I love the van.
