2006 Ford Freestar Minivan Limited 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We purchase our 2006Ford Freestar used with 45k. We have had one minor and one major repair since then. We had the repair a piece for one of the auto sliding door to work. And we had to replace the entire drivers central console due to the led communication panel failure. I could have lived without it but an odometer is required to pass state inspection. Other than that we love the car. We use it to trailer our 1500 lbs of gear to Cape Cod. The big high torque engine is amazing. Always power to spare. We love the entertainment system with DVD and wireless headsets. The car has plenty of room for even the longest trip. We even have used the trunk as a junior RV for long weekends.


Favorite Features

The engine with tons of torque. Seat Warmers for cold mornings at the bus stop. Folding seats.

Review

I love this van and it's great family transportation,also very good as a hauler for construction projects. It rides smoothly and has plenty of power. I have 65k on the van. I personally think too many things have gone wrong. Fortunately all covered under warranty: Front brake rotors replaced 2x due to warping. Fuel pump replaced (worked fine but squealed), rear window vent motor replaced, catalytic converter replaced. Funky AdvanceTrak issues sometimes,weatherstrip on windshield was falling off. I know the AX4N trans is known to have major issues so I just hope ours lasts. I do all maintenance myself - full syn fluids, trans every 15k, P/S every year, coolant etc


Favorite Features

Torquey engine, nice ride, tons of room, comfy seats on long rides (except 3rd row), kids love DVD player on trips. Great road trip vehicle. % star safety rating


Suggested Improvements

Sound system is really cheap - cars 20 years older have had better systems. Should have a 5 speed trans to improve fuel economy. Should have had simpler electrical system design - very buggy (AdvanceTrack issues, PCM-trans issues are also common, though not with mine, knock on wood, brake system

Review

It is perfect for a family with kids.


Suggested Improvements

My only issue is the setup of the seats. They could have given up some of the middle seat section to make more room to get into the back seating section.

Review

I have owned a Ford Windstar in the past, so I was familiar with front wheel drive. The handling response is great, it's peppy when needed, and gives a feeling of confidence. I find myself trying to increase my gas mileage by driving carefully. Side air curtains are a super plus for my grandchildren.


Favorite Features

Sleek lines. Power everything.


Suggested Improvements

None.
