2006 Ford Freestyle Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
Purchased it new, mostly hauling stuff and occasional people. Only problem was the brake recall. Only service - minor front end work, new tires (too early, imho) and regualr services when the change oil light comes on. I did buy the extended service from Ford, so I hope the tranny fails before 75K if it does at all. Oh and if you drive it carefully you can get 25+mpg on the highway at 65mph. I know because I have done it.
CVT, auto climate control, MPG, AWD, 7 passenger capable and large hauling capacity.
