2007 Ford Freestar Minivan Cargo 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This van was purchased as a practical utility vehicle and as a "daily driver". As such, the Freestar Cargo van meets all of my requirements: ability to carry a reasonable weight (1/2 to 3/4 ton) of cargo under cover (enclosed), be economical to drive to and from work (19-21 mpg combined), be comfortable to drive, and not be a financial burden to purchase.


Favorite Features

The large (for this type of vehicle) cargo area with easy access from the rear and both sides of the vehicle. This combined with the 1750lb capacity makes for a useful cargo vehicle for a home owner to transport the various materials needed for home care/improvement (both interior and exterior).


Suggested Improvements

A roof rack and a trailer hitch and harness as standard would be useful accessories with minimal impact on unit price.

2007 Ford Freestar Minivan Cargo 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I drive a company issued 3.9L cargo with maybe 200 pounds of extra weight in the rear. The driving dynamics are odd to say the least. It tends to stay on center, but it does not like to turn. The ride is smooth, but noisy. Combined gas mileage is 20 MPG, which is not too much of an improvement coming from a full size Ford E250 with 5.4L V8 that got 14 MPG on average. On quality, they painted the hood support rod to the hood and paint was damaged. At least I won't see it that often.


Favorite Features

None, although the Edge, which is replacing this minivan, looks like a vast improvement.


Suggested Improvements

The ergonomics are horrible, it needs to have more supportive seats, a telescoping wheel or adjustable pedals standard. The seats may be fine for short people, but at 6'1", I am having trouble finding a comfortable driving position.
