Love my Freestyle
By pwf2908 on
2007 Ford Freestyle SEL 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
I was a little concerned buying domestic over import - had been a Previa driver for years, but what an awesome replacement. This baby has power, comfort and hugs the road in all conditions, including our Canadian winters which are a mixed bag. Biggest test came during 'superstorm' last June. I hadn't realized how bad the road conditions were that night, but the Freestyle slogged through everything that storm threw at us and then some. (My Previa would never have made it - and we passed several others pulled off too.) Only thing that could be improved is my city gas mileage, but I love the power on the highway and when set to cruise, the highway mileage is great for that size engine!
Smooth transmission, excellent acceleration. Driver's seat just hugs the body - like driving in a really comfy armchair. Great space in the interior; really simple mechanisms to take advantage of a variety of seating positions; never thought I'd use reverse sensors but they're handy too.
Improve the gas mileage. Finish is definitely not the quality of imports - trim and seals and fabric quality on the seats wasn't the best. Minor comments though - I really like it.
