A capable people hauler

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

Review

No, this is not a Honda Odyssey or a Toyota Sienna - both of them IMO are overpriced and you might as well as go for the Korean vans then. The FORD is a capable, SAFE, comfortable and quiet people hauler. It has sufficient room and handles fine. It feels and drives built solid! The steering is good and the brakes are strong. The motor is quiet and is plenty of torque whether it's loaded or not - 4.2L will do that. And yes, it does not get 20 mpg in town but the engine barely works to get the job done.....that means a long life providing it's taken care of. We have a friends with an 4.0L AERO STAR with 190K on it...going strong! A good van and a good deal!

Favorite Features

SAFETY RATINGS! Quiet ride. Solid built Airbags galore Adjustable pedals - my wife is 5 2 power doors. A good deal!

Suggested Improvements

The seat cushions could be a bit higher in the back but for kids they are just fine. Independant suspension would be nice but then an axle is good for loads and towing. Gas mileage is
