2006 Ford Freestyle Limited 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
I had been researching and test driving various SUVs for over one year. I was looking for something with the comfort and versatility of a minivan, good gas mileage and not too big. Also didn't want to spend too much. The Freestyle is a great option. The ride is firm. I can easily get in and out of the car. The seats are the right proportion fit for me - much better than the ones in our F350. The glare on the windshield is very annoying. Polarized sun glasses are needed!
Memory seat and mirrors, controls on the steering wheel, adjustable brake and gas, easy use of third row seats/storage.
The control panel (A/C, seat heaters, fan) is not easy to see or use. Automatic rear door - it's heavy! Fix the windshield glare issue.
