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

Review

The Ford Freestyle is our first-ever American car. My wife chose it over the Pilot, Outback and Freelander. This car is the 21st century vehicle that fills the gap in the market left by Volvo years ago when they discontinued the 240DL wagon and moved upmarket. The Freestyle is well-built, sensible, spacious, stylish but not flashy, and yes, boxy. Despite the unassuming profile, strangers check it out and friends ask *lots* of questions. We love this car so far. Gas mileage is good. 3rd row seat is spacious and comfortable. The ride is great-good stability, nice brakes, smooth transmission. Even the dog appreciates the low trunk after jumping in & out of an SUV for years.

Favorite Features

CVT, interior layout & configuration, handling, 2nd row captains seats. I also love that this is an American car.

Suggested Improvements

Rear-view mirrors should tilt down when car is in reverse. Heated seat option on SEL. Retractable antenna. Window lock should NOT lock the front passenger window.
