A Good Car
By James Weidner on
2007 Ford Freestyle SEL 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
I have found this car to be a joy. The gas mileage is about 5-6 miles more per gallon than my last 2 Explorers. The car rides very well and is much quieter. I expect it to do well in the New Hampshire winters with the AWD too.
We really like the combination of the engine and the CVT. Very smooth and just enough power and plenty when you need it for passing. Fuel mileage has been about 22 combined and 26+ on the one trip we took so far at highway speeds.
Improvements I would like to see are the glass on the tail gate to open for better access in tight areas and an electric release on the rear hatch. Other than that we are just fine with this vehicle.
