2005 Ford Freestyle SE Fwd 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
Had doubts about first year of new vehicle. Issues in reseach were power and brakes. I've found power is more than adequate for 2 people in vehicle with luggage. Brakes were replaced (pads) at 30k. Gas mileage is as advertised 24 mpg highway. Miss no satellite radio. The storage space is more than adequate. Ford needed to push this vehicle more, would consider the new Taurus X version at trade in time.
Ease of entry. Climate control with rear a/c controls.
