1st Ford I've been unhappy with
By Tam on


2005 Ford Freestyle SE Fwd 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


This is the 6th Ford we've owned. Loved the others, can't stand this one! There is a new rattle every day, the speakers are shot, and now the engine is making this horrendously loud whine that no one can figure out. They say it may be the alternator - not covered by the powertrain warranty, and costs upwards of $700 to replace! It does have lots of room, handles nicely, and gets decent gas mileage. But I dread getting in it every day because of all the rattling and whining. I would trade it in in a heartbeat except the resale value is pathetic. It's worth about a third of what I paid for it just 2 years ago. Ford, you really disappointed me with this one!

Best Features

Gas mileage, roominess, 3rd row seats, plenty of cargo room with 3rd row folded down.

Worst Features

Pretty much everything else. Build quality is poor at best.
