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


Having bought a 1995 Windstar 3.8 in 1997, it was tough for us to want to return to Ford for a mini-van. After driving or riding in Toyotas, Dodge & Chrysler, we felt the new Freestars offered the most amenities, nicest ride (smooth) and...after 11 years, Ford would certainly get it right. In my opinion they did. We bought the van used with 33500 miles. Smooth shifting plenty of power with the 4.2 engine. The leather seats and 6 disc CD changer were added nice features. Mileage so far with a combination of highway/town driving has stayed at 21.4 MPG avg. Unfortunately Ford has decided that '07 is the last year for their mini-van...too bad,they have finally made a great mini-van.

Best Features

Safety. Dash info panel. Quieter rider than other vans. Quad seats w/armrests. Dual zone heating/cooling. 4.2 L engine

Worst Features

Audio is a little weak for SEL model. As everyone has said...the back seat does not work well with adults. However, having the choice between fold in floor rear seat or comfort...I will take the fold in floor seat any day!...after removing the 100+ lb. rear seat from my '95 Windstar countless times
