2005 Ford Freestar Minivan 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.

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.
The room in it is great. I have removed the second seat and can load anything in from all sides. Great gas mileage 21 all around 25 on trip
brakes are a little spongy and transmission should be replaced with a better one.

We bought this van used with about 17,000 miles. It has cloth bench seats and an optional factory overhead DVD player. Has been quite reliable so far. Now has 113,000 or so miles, and has developed a bit of a miss, maybe even transmission shudder, but the dealer says it just need a tune up. Good value, I'll post again after the tune-up.
good highway cruiser, not bad around town either, for a van. Dvd player, dual zone heat & a/c.
Adjustable headrests, better control of rear a/c vents.
