Ford was no help, so had to trade it in!

2007 Ford Freestyle Limited 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
Bought a Freestyle limited June 2007 and almost a year later had to trade it in. From day one we had a constant gas smell. Took it in and half a tank of gas later could find no problem. Kept driving it and smell got worse. Mpg highway was around 18, City was 15 at best. Winter was terrible because it would get stuck in 1/2 inch of snow. We had the pebble leather and it reflected in the front window very badly.
Loved the CVT. Loved the seating. Could see perfect out the front window clear from the back seat. Lots of room. Didnt think I would use it but loved the reverse beep.
I think Ford is onto something with the Freestyle/X. Would love to try one again in the future someday. MPG must get better then what we got.
