My Money Pit is my Freestar
By Never a Ford Owner A on


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


This car has always been a problem. It squeaks, it groans and it is a money pit. Brake issues, air conditioning failures, different sensors needing to be replaced and now the transmission is shot. It will cost more to replace the transmission than the car is actually worth if I sold it on my own and not traded it in! I would not wish this car on my worst enemy, if I had an enemy that is. It is a miserable car. The only redeeming quality to it is the interior. I love the seats and the hauling capacity but there is absolutely nothing else good about this car. It is no surprise that Ford does not make a mini van anymore. What a lemon.

Best Features

the seating and the hauling capacity

Worst Features

recall this car. There are just too many problems with it.
