2006 Ford Freestyle SE 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
I was at the dealership looking for an Expedition or Explorer when the salesman pointed out the Freestyle, and I am glad he did. I bought the last 2006 the dealer had, it was on the showroom floor. Mine has AWD, extra airbags, safety and security option, rear AC, 60/40 middle seat, individual climate controls up front. It is dark Pearl Blue with a pebble interior. The car has a low center of gravity and is fun to drive and handlles really well.
Gas mileage, styling, handling, CVT transmission is smooth, and the car is really versatile. I cannot understand why the Ford Motor Company does not promote or advertise this vehicle. They have a real winner here with this safe and fun to drive vehicle.
Ford needs to dress up the outside with some chrome. A pull strap is needed on the real liftgate.
