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

Review

We shopped around quite a bit with all brands of vans at the time, and Ford had the best safety at the time and historically. Safety of GM and Chrysler were unacceptable. Honda's was same as Chrysler, and had history of trans issues. Toyota had brought up their safety to match 5 star, but only more recently, and had history of engine sludge issues. Drives well, comfortable even on long trips, and plenty of room for kids and all associated junk. No major problems up to now. Good gas mileage and surprising performance for something of this weight, which is really what we needed for a double stroller, etc.

Best Features

MP3 6-CD changer, seats that fold into the floor, lots of room: we hauled a huge amount of bamboo from a nursery several hundred miles away, with the kids in the middle row of seats. It was quite a sight!

Worst Features

Better resale would be nice: it's worth less than half what we paid for it; but we knew when we bought it that vans were going out of style and declining in value. That's why Ford stopped making them. We plan to drive it until the wheels fall off, so it really doesn't matter.
