2006 Ford Freestyle Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
Family loves the car and its features but this car just isn't performing as I had hoped. Quality issues have been plentiful. Improper alignment from the factory caused both front tires to wear after 12k miles, speedometer head had to be replaced at 5k miles (took 5 days and had to have a rental), brake light sensor has been replaced twice and rear door trim continually came loose. Gas mileage is also far from Ford's claim. We get about 15MPG with mostly city driving. Our 2001 Highlander gets almost 20MPG city.
Seats are some of the most comfortable I have ever had in a car - great for long trips. Styling is nice for a family hauler. Kids love the entertainment system. Plenty of room for my family of 5.
Improve the QA at the factory. Rear tinted windows. Up the displacement of the V6 engine - a little underpowered when fully loaded.
