Up until five years ago I had not purchased an American car in more than 15 years.
For me, the quality of Honda's automobiles cannot be matched.
Having said that, 5 years ago I decided to give Ford a shot due to all of the press stating that "Ford was back" and the quality of their vehicles had improved.
I have had nothing but problems with my Freestyle since buying it new in 2006.
Crappy brakes, CVT transmission problems, throttle body problems, etc.
My first bad experience happended while on vacation more than 1,000 miles from home when it broke down while we were on the expressway.
And in my experiences, the Ford dealers service centers are the worst in the industry.
Nice interior design.
V-6 engine provides plenty of power.
Too many to list!
Do NOT purchase a Ford Freestyle.
