Way too many electrical problems!
By Tommy on


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


It drove great for the first 2 years. In August of 2006 we took it in to have routine maintenance and it has never been the same. It has had too many electrical problems to list as well as having to replace the transmission. Out of the past 6 months, I have only driven it about 2 weeks. The rest of the time it has been in the shop. I hope I get a new vehicle or they give me the replacement value on it for another vehicle. I am the grandson of a former lifetime Ford employee and have been a devout Ford buyer. This has really made me upset. I just hope they do the right thing. It is even worse because I am in the military and this is my wife's vehicle. It has made my life miserable!

Best Features

DVD system, fold down back seat, and removable back bucket seats.

Worst Features

Recall this van now! It is a lemon! First fix all the electrical problems. The 6 CD changer could be more user friendly and quicker. The DVD screen had some issues when folding it up and down then playing DVDs it would have a messed up picture on the screen. Ford, do the right thing and recall!
