2005 Ford Freestar Cargo 4dr Minivan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)


I traded in my Windstar which was one big electrical problem. And it seems I just got a new version of the Windstar. Still electrical problems. I've had the electric door module fixed twice in 5 months. The door ajar light stays on with the dome lights when the module goes out. Had the same problem with my Windstar. The quality inside is worse than the Windstar and has cheaper plastic. But it looks nice inside. I just don't feel the quality is there. I don't like that you can't get cloth seats in the Limited. I don't like leather, it's too hard and uncomfortable. I like the van, but it isn't my best choice. I should have shopped better.

Best Features

Reverse and front sensing, deep floor in back cargo space, the faux wood accent looks nice, and the chrome accents.

Worst Features

Electric hatch door like the Chrysler Town and Country. I don't like the analog clock.
