2005 Ford Freestar SEL 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

If you want a solid minivan then you should consider this one. I looked at the other competitors and they're all great. I made the final decision on price and dealer experience. My second choice was the Nissan, third Honda, and last Toyota. I simply refuse to buy a Toyota because the dealers never budge on price. I've driven Ford and Nissan products and will stick with them in the future.


Best Features

Good ride. Very comfortable. Fold away rear seat, rear air, and sliding doors. We just completed a vacation trip and the van performed great.


Worst Features

Add auto/electronic lumbar vs the manual lumbar. Add full stow away for the middle captain chairs. Remove hand brake and go back to the floor brake and increase size of front middle storage compartment.

2005 Ford Freestar SES 4dr Minivan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Isn't it possible for Ford to build an auto that doesn't have rattles in it and doesn't sound like a cement mixer when idling? Friends of ours have a new Toyoda van and when idling, it is impossible to hear it running. My new Freestar sounds like a cement mixer compared to the Toyota. Also at times there is a noise from behind the dash that sounds 100% like a tuning fork. Have taken van back to garage, and of course it doesn't act up! Am I the only one that has had these problems?


Best Features

Great van to drive, very comfortable.


Worst Features

Better sound absorbing insulation. Also better quality control.

2005 Ford Freestar SEL 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We bought our Freestar in September 2004 and have really enjoyed it. Styling is outstanding and reliability is unquestionable. Fuel economy is less than I had expected.


Best Features

Interior storage is excellent. Exterior styling and finish is fabulous.


Worst Features

Fold-away center seats would be a plus.

2005 Ford Freestar Limited 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Love everything about this vehicle. The only con is the plastic interior compared to the upholstered Windstar. Great driving and solid. Wish the DVD player did not block the rear window.


Best Features

Love everything about this vehicle.


Worst Features

Put the DVD back in the console so it does not block the rear window when down.

2005 Ford Freestar Limited 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The Freestar is perfect for a VMI conversion for handicapped drivers! The ride is smooth, especially on the highway. The is not much wind noise, either. My conversion adds A LOT of weight and modifies the aerodynamics to the van which hinders fuel economy slightly.


Best Features

Everything is easily within reach. The instrument panel is clearly read.
