2005 Ford Freestyle SEL Fwd 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
Replaced brakes after 34,000 miles, and had the intermittent cluster display circuit board replaced at a whopping $980.00 I've always bought Ford vehicles in the past, but this is the last time I buy anything from Ford. I don't know how Ford managed to stay away from the bailout, because their vehicles are total garbage, except for their line of Trucks.
Driving at 2500 rpm - I've managed to get around 27-30 mpg.
I know this is a discontinued model, but any future designs that are concurrent with this model should be aware that the car makes a loud helicopter effect when driving with the windows down, and the radio is garbage
