2006 Ford Freestar Limited 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
The day my wife finally decided to get rid of the Sedona we did not hesitate to buy the Freestar. Ford has done an excellent job putting a SAFE, comfortable, attractive vehicle on the road at a reasonable price. One thing I would like to address is the power issue. A consumer magazine stated the vehicle was under-powered; my question is compared to what? The Freestar does not have the power my '04 Marauder, with SuperChip and K&N air induction, but it has ample power for a back road pass or a trip up I40 or I26 into the mountains of NC.
In both government and insurance crash tests the Freestar did 5 star. Very comfortable.
Road noise should be less, better tires should come on the Limited.
