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.


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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.

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.


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

Towing package would be nice, and roof racks.

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


Review

This car is good to drive. Easy to get in and out of with a bad back (for me). Easy to put items in and out and the center console in the second seat is an asset to passengers. Good air flow throughout the car. Enjoy the small compartment on the dash


Favorite Features

Seat memory, seat heaters. Stereo and radio control on steering wheel. Compartment on dash


Suggested Improvements

Somewhere to put GPS. We try the dash top compartment but it won't stand up. We do not like it on the window

Review

I traded an 05 Freestyle w/ only 30,000 mi in order to get the CVT which was phased out in the Taurus X! Usually drive machine to 100,000 to 150,000 mi! An hr of expressway driving with the six spd AT after getting used to the small efficient 6 w/ CVT made me take the depreciation hit! My 07 has had no issues mechanically and the fit & finish is excellent! I enjoy getting away from the stoplites faster than most and no hunting for gears as the RPM's stay up and then come down to cruise. Very comfortable vehicle for 6 adults!


Favorite Features

CVT with small V6 quite economical. Sound system excellent! Sunroof a pleasure.


Suggested Improvements

Can't think of a one!
