2006 Ford Freestyle SE 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Had our 2006 Freestyle 2wd for a year now. Bought used in 2008. Very reliable after driving it from 24k miles to 46k miles. Takes the family everywhere in comfort without being so bulky as a minivan. Second row seats 6'+ adults very comfortably. Third row offers plenty of leg room, and seats 5'8" adults comfortably. Decent in snow, in spite of being 2wd. Nimble enough off road. Rugged compared to crossover SUVs. Excellent vehicle, would recommend.


Best Features

Simple design that works very well. Very comfortable seating arrangement. Folding third row seats give excellent cargo room. Decent cargo room when third row in use.


Worst Features

Difficult to see cars/pedestrians at intersections because of front window pillar locations.

2006 Ford Freestyle Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


Review

The good thing that I personally love about this car is, well every thing it has enough power,room,dvd player,even climate control. I have driven over 60,000 kms and still have 4% on the front and 7% in the rear.Now, all my tires are worn more than the other but its not an alignment problem its how much I haul more weight in one corner.


Best Features

every thing that it has.


Worst Features

The DVD screen gets really hot within about 5 mins so don't put plastics on. cargo space could improve but 86 square feet is enough. And a rope or something should be attached to the hatch.

2006 Ford Freestyle SE 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


Review

We replaced our 1994 Aerostar with the 2006 Freestyle SE in 2007 and have not been disappointed at all. It offers a very smooth, comfortable, and quiet ride. We average 20 mpg in town and about 22-24 on the highway. The steering is tight, but can turn on a dime. The only problem we have had is with the second row seating getting stuck and not always wanting to fold flat. Overall we are very pleased with the performance and absolutely love the CVT transmission! The vehicle had 32,000 miles when we bought it and now has 41,000. To those reviewers who say the vehicle has no power I am at a loss as to why because it moves when you want or need it to and it doesn't hesitate.


Best Features

CVT is wonderful!! Great cargo space. Very comfortably fits 7 passengers of average size.


Worst Features

The cloth seats while comfortable are really bad about staining. The material used for those seats should be replaced. Adding a strap to close the hatch would be nice, especially for short people like myself.

2006 Ford Freestyle Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


Review

We bought this used with 31,000 on it, we haul a lot of stuff due to making repairs on house, this is one large roomy vehicle.. Still getting used to all the bells and whistles but can't say a bad thing about it traded in a Cherokee for it and have not had one bit of trouble with it so far. We have had 6 people in it and all were comfortable with plenty of elbow room


Best Features

just about everything especially how roomy it is.


Worst Features

Wish they had put some kind of a hatch closer on it, maybe a power one that would close at the press of a button

Review

Purchased it new, mostly hauling stuff and occasional people. Only problem was the brake recall. Only service - minor front end work, new tires (too early, imho) and regualr services when the change oil light comes on. I did buy the extended service from Ford, so I hope the tranny fails before 75K if it does at all. Oh and if you drive it carefully you can get 25+mpg on the highway at 65mph. I know because I have done it.


Best Features

CVT, auto climate control, MPG, AWD, 7 passenger capable and large hauling capacity.


Worst Features

better interior
