2005 Ford Freestyle SEL Fwd 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
We were out looking at a replacement
for my wife's 2002 Escape as we want a
vehicle with more fluff. We drove the
Explorer and also the Cadillac SRX.
The SRX was a nice car but the finish
work on the in side was poor for the
high cost. We drove the Freestyle as
an after thought and were very
pleased. It had a lot of power with
the new CVT transmission and the SEL
model had everything we wanted plus it
was $15,000 retail less then the
Cadillac. So far we are very pleased
and it is easily accessible for an
aging parent with support handles in
the ceiling and on the front dash.
Front wheel drive -- great expected gas
mileage and has a lot of luggage space
