Great Value - The Best 7 Passanger AWD
By John I on
2007 Ford Freestyle Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
Just turned 49,900 miles on my 2007 Freestyle Limited AWD. This is the best 7 passenger vehicle AWD out there. It has been through mud, sand and snow and is unstoppable. Consistently gets 20-22 mpg in combined driving in New Jersey. Back and forth Florida to New Jersey a couple of times, and the vehicle is very easy to handle. Much better in crosswinds than any SUV and just as comfortable inside. The AWD drive system from Volvo in this thing is the best, and at a much lower price than a Volvo.
The 3.0L 4 valve DOHC 6 cyl works well with the CVT. It always seems to be in the power band. Navigation system is easy to use. The heated seats are the best.
Bigger gas tank to easily go 400 to 500 miles between fill ups. Switched the tires to Goodyear Assurances, they are quieter and cost less than the Pirelli's.
