2007 Ford Freestyle SEL 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Previous review 21/1/07 - "Great car, so-so mileage on AWD". Almost one year later, still love this car at 29000 miles. Hugely comfortable. Noticing the climate control buttons take a little too much attention to operate (small buttons, big fingers). Would prefer some dials for mode selection. Had rear brakes replaced at 24K - common problem. That's the only problem though. Mileage has improved as I've learned how to drive it (i.e. - relax!). Getting 18 city and 24-27 on freeway, depending on speed (27 at 60, 24 at 70). Carry 6 people to lunch on regular basis. Trip from WA to CO was a huge success with lots of room and no driver fatigue. Still feels/smells new to me.


Best Features

Handling is awesome. Not a sports car but corners very flat. No body roll at all. Accelerates well enough when you put your foot in it, just makes some noise while doing it.


Worst Features

Add two more speakers for third row occupants! Dial-style HVAC mode control.

2007 Ford Freestyle Limited 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


Review

I have only had my Freestyle a week, but I am already in love. It gets great gas mileage and so user friendly. And it has all the bells and whistles. And seats 6 for hauling the kids and friends. And the CVT transmission is a true asset. This is Ford's best kept secret. I let my dad drive it and he swore he felt it shift. He still doesn't get it. Best thing ever spent my money on.


Best Features

Oh my, I have so many favorites. I just love it all.


Worst Features

Can't really think of anything.

2007 Ford Freestyle Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


Review

My fiancee wanted another Explorer, even though she had numerous mechanical problems with her previous Explorer. She was talked into buying the Freestyle, partly because of the CVT. The car is noisy, sluggish and cramped. The capper? The vaunted CVT failed after 50,000 miles. The price tag? $7,000. Ford disavows the possibility that it was a defect. Have you driven a Ford lately? Good Luck brother!

2007 Ford Freestyle SEL 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


Review

This is the first long road trip we've taken with our new-(bought used), Ford Freestyle, automatic, 3.0 liter engine. We loaded the car with 6 adults, an 18 cubic foot cartop luggage carrier and filled the somewhat cramped luggage space in the back. This car worked flawless. A smooth, effortless ride up the mountain passes and well controlled ride with plenty of brake reserve on the downhill runs. The ride for all passengers was smooth and comfortable. When we did hit those few rough road conditions the car absorbed all but the deepest ruts and bumps. In heavy traffic we were able to accelerate, brake and move with ease in spite of our heavy load. A breeze to park and maneuver.


Best Features

The engine. We averaged 20.5 mpg for the trip and we moved right along no matter what the terrain. Excellent disk brakes at all four wheels. Ride comfort, visibility, seating for 7, luggage rack, controls for rear heating, air, and ventilation. Easy to move in tight spaces. Backup warning indicator.


Worst Features

More cupholders. Odometer and trip information very hard to read, even in the best lighting conditions. Need more room to move into or out of 3rd seat. Need rear speakers. More electrical accessory outlets-(AKA cigarette lighters) for cell phones, GPS, portable DVD players, etc.

2007 Ford Freestyle Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


Review

I found almost everything I wanted in a car in the Freestyle. The space, seating is perfect for family of 5 and dog. Heated seats are heavenly in the winter. Dual climate control and rear climate control is great. Gas mileage is pretty good for a larger vehicle. And I really needed the AWD, no more worries about getting home in the snow.


Best Features

Heated seats, sleek interior, responds great, multi CD player and the dual climate and third row seats. I was glad to find out they didn't discontinue it. It should have been more widely advertised, it answered most if not all of my requirements.


Worst Features

Towing package would be nice, and roof racks.
