2006 Ford Freestyle Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
Limited Black leather interior is great looking. Layout and NAV system are nice features. I wouldn't get this car in anything but the Limited style. Get the captains chairs in the 2nd row if you have 2 or more car seats. You can scoot between the rows, if you take out the console, or you can climb over it easier than taking out the car seats to get in the back.
3 rows of REAL seating (and grocery storage space!), DVD system, NAV system, CVT, coloring/fit/finish. Exterior numeric entry panel, controls on steering wheel, nice set of wheels, handling is great for what is pretty much a minivan. Exterior in limited style really looks great.
Brakes that make less brake dust, a little better gas mileage, a little softer ride, a hair more power for merging on highways ... not a big problem though, I'm not racing anyone in this car.
