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

Review

This car was okay. For hauling around little kids and their junk, just get a minivan, this is not a substitute. Mileage was pretty decent and I liked the size. The interior finishes were cheap. The third row seat was alright for occasional use, but swallowed all cargo space. We had two 6 foot plus, 250 pound people in the third row and it was actually okay. However, at 40,000 miles and only 2 years old the transmission needed to have major work done, to the tune of $2,000. Not happy. Traded it in on a Honda Odyssey. I am sad to be driving my first non-ford, but this was the straw that broke the camel's back. I can just feel that the Odyssey is going to be a much better long term vehicle.

Favorite Features

Sun roof, gas mileage, non-minivan status.

Suggested Improvements

Get a decent transmission.
