2006 Ford Freestar SEL 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
Bought a SEL Freestar 4.2 used with 15,000 miles. Very pleased with it. Wife has a 2003 Honda Odyssey which I consider a great minivan and we bought the Freestar as an extra minivan since that one has high miles and for my personal vehicle. The Honda seems to be built much better, but was twice the price and had no room for negotiation because of popularity of model. However, they both drive great and for the money, I would buy the Ford over the Honda in the future! The sound system is pretty weak as well since it only has 4 speakers.
Storage compartments, fold flat third row seats, and DVD player.
Back seats are too low to the ground for adults. Also, we have three year old twins in car seats and if anybody is riding in the back, it is a very tight squeeze to fit between the second row captains chairs. You cannot tumble them forward if you have car seats secured in place!
