2005 Ford Freestyle SE AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
I LOVED my Freestyle. Ok, we had the issue with the rear brakes in the beginning, going through a set a year which our fabulous dealer replaced, FREE, twice, and then I had my Firestone guy do it right the third time and they have been fine ever since. No other issues. Drove us fully loaded from Seattle to Texas with the AC full blast the summer before last - 24 MPG! Sadly, last weekend, she performed her final duty, crumpling and absorbing the force as my 17 YO son crashed her. TOTALED. Interior of the car looks like NOTHING HAPPENED. Thank you Freestyle, sniff. You'll be missed. Gone, but not forgotten.
SAFETY. Gas mileage for its size. Flexible seating.
Can you make the power steering not sound like a plane taking off?
