2006 Ford Freestyle SEL 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
Since buying my Freestyle in June 06, I am now taking it in to have the door weather stripping replaced on the passenger side for the second time. I bought this vehicle to accommodate my three kids. They get in and out of the passenger side daily. It has been two months since the first replacement of the weather stripping. Now we're back again. The stripping cracks and then pulls away from the frame. If this vehicle is supposed to be durable for kids, Ford needs to go back to the drawing board to address this issue.
Good, not excellent, gas mileage. Spacious for kids. Smooth drive.
Change the gasket material around the door. The current one stinks!
