Traded a Lexus LS400

2005 Ford Freestar Limited 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


I have not had the slightest trouble & I cannot believe how well it handles, rides, looks etc. I was a new car dealer myself for a number of years, Ford, Chev-Olds, Mercedes Benz, & a BIG used car operation. Also raced production cars for years. My Freestar starts, stops, handles, is completely rattle free, very good stereo & DVD set up, tows well with factory trailer towing equipment, reasonable price for such a satisfactory vehicle. A Honda dealer friend lent me an Odyssey for a week & I decided that overall I considered the Freestar Limited to be the better vehicle.

Best Features

Style, vast number of dealers available while travelling North America if required. I normally do not like front wheel drive, but this van does not ever show any bad FWD tendancies, amazing!

Worst Features

More comfortable seating in 3rd row, easier to remove center seats, reasonably priced GPS navigation system, better fuel economy.
