Satisfied Freestar Owner
By Jacob on
2005 Ford Freestar SEL 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
Overall we're very satisfied with vehicle. Ride is comfortable. Roomy interior. Decent power. A few problems arose since we drove it off the lot - the power liftgate wasn't closing properly and we noticed the third-row seat pattern was slightly different than the rest of the car, but dealership has been responsive to these issues. NYC area promotion of free DVD player was definitely a plus. Perhaps not as stylish as a Quest or refined as a Sienna or Odyssey, but with all the features we got in our SEL, was thousands less than the competition. Love being able to play DVDs for kids through headphones while retaining control of car stereo.
DVD with wireless headsets and remote. power sliding doors/liftgate. Adjustable petals. Keyless entry. Trip computer. Wood accent on dash. Stereo/DVD controls on steering wheel. Stow-n-go/reverse direction third row seat. Drop-down peripheral rear mirror.
Make drawer under cup-holder slightly larger to hold DVD cases. Improve gas mileage. Offer built-in booster seat. Expand features of trip computer. Replace emergency hand brake with foot brake to create more room in console area. Put storage drawers under front seats. Better styling for boxy dashboard.
