06 AWD Freestyle - Great Car
By Gary on
2006 Ford Freestyle SEL 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
Purchased and drove the vehicle about 1400 miles in two days. Very comfortable car. Rear air is handy for kids in very back - without it, they get warm. Fuels economy 26 @ 70 mph; 23 @ 75 mph and 21 @ 80. I was a bit disappointed with the fuel economy at 80. CVT transmission works wonderfully, and the vehicle rides as quiet as a Lexus.
Lot's of storage. With both rear seats up, managed to pack all luggage for 2 adults & 3 kids in well behind the rear seats & could still see out the window. Use the space under rear seat. A lot more room back there than what appears. CVT is great, seat comfort is great, and the ride is excellent.
Front end styling at grille and headlights a bit soggy. Take some cues from Volvo - you own them now remember.
