After a summer of driving the kids around I have to say that the Freestyle is the great family hauler. Have a 2001 Windstar and decided to see if the Freestyle would as good a hauler as a minivan but with a better ride and comfort. Well, the answer is "YES". There is not as much interior space as a minivan but I am over it. The Freesytle is great!
Fold flat third row, wireless DVD headphones, very quiet interior even on highway, comfy seats (have leather), BEST A/C without a doubt.
DVD player blocks rear view when screen is down, conversion mirror also blocks rear view (unlike in the Windstar), wish it had hooks in the rear compartment for shopping bags.
