2006 Ford Freestar Limited 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


I love this van and it's great family transportation,also very good as a hauler for construction projects. It rides smoothly and has plenty of power. I have 65k on the van. I personally think too many things have gone wrong. Fortunately all covered under warranty: Front brake rotors replaced 2x due to warping. Fuel pump replaced (worked fine but squealed), rear window vent motor replaced, catalytic converter replaced. Funky AdvanceTrak issues sometimes,weatherstrip on windshield was falling off. I know the AX4N trans is known to have major issues so I just hope ours lasts. I do all maintenance myself - full syn fluids, trans every 15k, P/S every year, coolant etc

Best Features

Torquey engine, nice ride, tons of room, comfy seats on long rides (except 3rd row), kids love DVD player on trips. Great road trip vehicle. % star safety rating

Worst Features

Sound system is really cheap - cars 20 years older have had better systems. Should have a 5 speed trans to improve fuel economy. Should have had simpler electrical system design - very buggy (AdvanceTrack issues, PCM-trans issues are also common, though not with mine, knock on wood, brake system
