2007 Ford Freestyle Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
Was looking for a SUV crossover type vehicle for my dogs and to move furniture, etc. with ease. My final two choices came down to the Ford Freestyle and the Mazda CX-9. Both vehicles stacked up pretty comparably but Ford tagged at about $10K less than Mazda with the same features at the dealer. LOVE the responsiveness of the Ford in handling and braking. Drives better than many sedan models. Wish it had a little more kick taking off, but glad to sacrifice that for the MPG. The features are great, but the driveability is OUTSTANDING. Keep it up, Ford ---:)
The instrument panel displays readings for every fluid level, tire pressure, fuel cap, etc. Also like the digital compass, mpg reading, trip timer/meter. The stereo is GREAT with the added subwoofer and 6 disc CD. Love the stow-and-go seating in the rear seats and the rear temperature control.
More glove compartment space would be nice. Also would like to add a hatch release to the remote keyless entry control.
