Not Bad

Vehicle

2007 Ford Freestyle Limited 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

Review

Traded in my 03 Yukon XL (lemon) and looked for a more fuel efficient wagon with 3 rows. Volvo too expensive. Pacifica close, but price/features no match. Pilot, great vehicle, but mileage like other SUV's. Since it's a Ford, there is no reason why you can't get invoice pricing. Don't believe ads, it's a lie, you'll get about 20 to 25 mpg and there is no way you'll get 500 miles to the tank, unless you're coasting downhill for that many miles. Overall, if you are looking for non SUV, non-minivan, decent room with 3 row seating, fuel economy, feature, content and price, this probably is about the only option. Too bad Toyota, Honda, Nissan had no viable option. May want to check out Mazda CX9.

Best Features

XC90 based, European firm but not harsh. All seats fold flat. Theater seating, my 6ft frame is comfy in 3rd row. Storage areas. Durable leather seats. Buttoned down styling. Compared to SUV's, you'll get 20 to 50% better mpg. CVT, like driving a golf cart. In-dash CD changer, MP3, dual zone A/C.

Worst Features

Like all domestics V6 engine sound is not refined (think of a blender), loud during acceleration, raspy (quiet when up to speed though). Weak stereo. Some plastic fitment issues. Slight creak sometimes. Overall verdict: Advantages outweigh disadvantages.
