The Freestar was the best van for me and my family. It had better exterior styling than the Chevrolet Uplander or the Venture. It also had a more refined interior than the Chevy vans. It was more comfort table and versatile and fit in with our life styles more.
One of my favorite features of this van is the dash board. The woodgrain is awesome, and the dash is just well placed.
The only improvements for the Freestar i have to offer is leather trim on the SEL models and better towing capacity.
