Happy owner so far
By Tim Lu on
2006 Ford Freestar SEL 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
Had 2006 Sport for about a year and 25k, no problem so far. Drawn to it by the price (for the same level, 6-disc CD, reverse sensing system, alloy wheels DVD, etc), I would have spent $10k more on Japanese models. Overall, a great vehicle for the price.
Ample torque, blinker on mirror makes lane change easy, reasonable mileage (here in Canada, 10.5 Liter per 100km highway). Quiet ride on local roads.
3rd row seat too low. Floor vent is too close to driver's foot, I feel that my right foot is being cooked every time I put heat on floor setting. Should have 5 speed transmission to offer better fuel economy. Highway road noise a bit high. Should have speed-sensitive volume on all models
