2005 Ford Freestyle Limited AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

Review

When I purchased this thing, I soon realized why Ford is in such a financial slump. People are getting wise and not buying Ford's anymore, I unfortunately was one of the few unwise and bought one. After only 15k, a new transmission was needed which Ford had the nerve to blame the failure on me. I had to take them to court the get it fixed under warranty! 5k after that the fuel pump went, leaving me and my family stranded on the side of the road during a trip (Ford refused to pay for the tow) Later my headlights would not turn on, only highbeams worked, which got me a ticket for driving with highbeams on. After 30k, I needed another new fuel pump, washer fluid pump, CD player stopped working.

Favorite Features

Looks decent, AWD helps get stuck out of snow (when car is working)

Suggested Improvements

I suggest not buying a Ford at all. Thats the best improvement you can make for yourself. The quality and reliability is substandard compared to European and Asian cars. I also have a 06 Sonata V6 with twice the mileage of my Ford and have not had a single problem with it. I sold my Ford.
