2004 Ford Freestar SE 4dr Minivan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)


Bought new in July 04, dealer replaced front brakes due to a defect at 10k, no problems until 38k when transmission blew seal. Cost 1700 at independent trans mechanic since it was at holiday. Brought faulty seals to dealer, they replied "you should of brought vehicle in to us and got an estimate" Would of gotten gouged for sure my opinion. Plan on driving it to the junkyard. How can sticker on this plastic monster be 27k, got it after rebates for 17k and worth 4k 5 years later? Brakes squeak, and I put so much time into shims and anti-rattle compound. Don't let dealer put another Ford trans in your vehicle, let someone rebuild it with new seals. Why invite the same trouble twice?

Best Features

Great on trips, lots of DC outlets for the Ipods and kid's toys of your family, roomy, comfortable on highway, 20mpg (highway) about 17 city.

Worst Features

Can Ford put any more plastic panels that warp in this vehicle? If this thing catches on fire, It will plume black smoke for a mile in the air!
