Better than expected

2007 Ford Freestyle SEL 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
The Freestyle was a practical choice because rebate plus 0.9% financing saved us thousands over the Odyssey or the Sienna and we got AWD to boot. Wasn't expecting a great car but that's what I got! Handles like a dream, smooth ride, hugs the road on curves, fun to drive. Lots of interior room: third row comfortable even with long legs. Getting 18-19 MPG in town and 24- 25 MPG on the road. Deep well in back gives lots of room for day to day cargo and adequate space for a week's worth of luggage for 6 of us. Has the best temp. control I have ever had in a car, both heat and AC. Set the temp you want and that's where it stays. Plenty of power for my needs, even up the mountains of central PA.
Smooth ride, excellent temp control, good legroom all three rows, split 3rd row seat allows me to maximize both seating capacity and cargo space as needed, like back-up warning signal
Needs an override for dome light. Would like cassette player along with the CD. Soundproofing could be improved to cut down more on highway noise
