I bought my Freestar new in Feb 07 and have had no problems at all. Rides great on the interstate and does pretty good on gas mileage. Like the ease of dropping down the 3rd row seat into the floor and gives the dogs somewhere to lay. Plan on keeping it for years!
Fold down 3rd row seat, rear a/c, easy to see out of.
A little less plastic on the dash and a little more leg room up front would be nice.
