06 SEL Freestar 44,000 mile update
By RW on
2006 Ford Freestar SEL 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
Purchased 06 Freestar van new in October 06. Loved the interior seating arrangements, shoulder and leg room for first and second rows. Third row bench folds flat and is a bit too low when in use. Lots of cargo room when stored though. Engine has lots of torque but has been detuned (4.2 L should give far more then 200 hp).
Great visibility, feels safe and stable. Heater, AC, as well as rear heat and AC are excellent. Good sized fuel tank. Van handled excellent on studded tires when we lived in Alaska for 2 yrs. Very comfortable hwy driving. Lots of cubbyholes for storage.
Interior is mostly plastic, and the fuel economy is only 17 city and 20/21 hwy (all time best 23 hwy). Very tight under the hood making some routine maintenance tough. Overall a great vehicle, too bad its been discontinued.
