2005 Ford Freestyle SE Fwd 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

Review

Yes, acceleration has some noise, and the road bumps aren't absorbed as nicely as my Explorer, but I just took two long trips, over 1,000mi combined, set the cruise on 57 and get 31.6 mpg. Car is well maintained, clean filters, oil, etc. New Michelins as the Pirellis were loud and awful. I know that I'm not driving a Lexus, so some things are to be expected, but 31.6 makes me accept a few flaws. Near 20 city (never accelerate over 2000 rpm, don't rush to the next red light, etc) and mid 20's overall. Plenty of cargo space, handles very well on tight turns, no sway, holds the road well, has good acceleration, a bit weak when you ask it for more on the highway. A real nice car that's underrated.

Favorite Features

Gas mileage, handling, windnoise. For a car this big it's awesome

Suggested Improvements

Engine noise is when accelerating excessive, but tolerable, rough roads, pot holes seem worse than they are, suspension doesn't absorb them well, even as softly as I drive.
