2006 Ford Freestyle Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
This was both my first new car and my first Ford. The dealership was awesome and made the buying of the vehicle both fun and easy. As for the Freestyle, I wouldn't change a thing about it. The power is adequate for me and the ride is better than anything else I've driven. Interior is very comfortable and the stereo and DVD system are lots of fun and sound great. My only problem with the vehicle so far is that we haven't had much time to drive since the rear end failed at just over 200 miles and it's been back at the dealership being repaired. Oh well ... that's what the warranty is for I guess. Probably should have listened to my parents and gone for the Subaru. :)
The ride. Oh my God, the ride! Super comfy seats and interior all around. Climate control and DVD are very cool. AWD will be great this winter.
