2005 Ford Freestyle AWD

2005 Ford Freestyle SE Fwd 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
I purchased my Freestyle used in 2008 with 32k miles. The CVT is smooth but takes some getting used to. Low end torque is lacking but a wide-open throttle command at highway speed reveals the hidden upper-rpm power. The interior is average but adequate; but not the most comfortable ride for long hauls (400 miles or more). Reliability is another strong point.
My favorite feature, and I still can't believe it, is how well this vehicle handles. There is virtually no body roll in the turns and during aggressive manuvers, the vehicle always feels stable.
This car is an excellent and reliable performer. However, I would pay more for a more luxurious ride, a better quality interior, and a more quiet AWD system.
