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


We spent 3 months searching for the exact Freestar after having a 99 Explorer Sport. Decided to go with Ford because of styling and our dedication to Ford. Good choice for us. We found the exact van we wanted in Norsea Blue, SEL, bucket 2nd row, DVD, 4.2 engine and 17 inch rims, and just under 36,000 miles. Drove our 93 Escort 4 hours to get it. Very nice van, great exterior styling, better than GM and Chrysler. Ample power for a van, no major problems to date. Only things I notice are rear side defroster doesnt work, rear hatch struts creak in winter, has an exhaust droan right off idle, both side doors rattle over bumps,and a slight speedometer/rpm cluster noise We love it and plan to keep it

Best Features

Norsea Blue is beautiful, DVD system, 2nd row buckets, 4.2 engine. Fold down 3rd seat is cool. Parts not too expensive for a newer vehicle, ease of maintenance is a plus. Roomy and comfortable. Exactly the van we were searching for. Very pleased with it. Its a nicely refined Windstar with attitude.

Worst Features

Is there a way to listen to the radio while the DVD is on? I'd like to know. A little too much fragile interior plastic has a few squeaks and rattles. For the price a good vehicle. We plan on driving it to the end of its life as we did our rusted out 93 Escort GT.
