2004 Ford Freestar SEL 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


I purchased it as a Ford Certified vehicle and the front end has always "smoked", my door locks don't work every time, the side mirrors do not work electronically now, the car has always had intermittent "jerking" at around 45 mph, replacing brakes was a chore, caliper would not compress, now my power steering is having issues, can't remove rear captain's chairs. When I took it in because of a transmission leaked early on, they told me nothing is wrong, only replaced seals. Did not fix problem. Gas mileage horrible, also have an Avalanche and that gets better gas mileage. Traded in Mustang for this? I do not expect a 4 year old vehicle to have this many problems.

Best Features

Roomy for 3 kids, rear folding bench.

Worst Features

Gas mileage! Make a better quality van that doesn't have issues after 4 years.
