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


My wife chose the Freestyle as a family car while I was overseas, the family (wife and three daughters)enjoyed it for six months. When I returned for vacation I had the opportunity to drive it for a week. I loved the style, handling,color, gas mileage for the times, in-city and highway, spaciousness and cargo capacity. Only regular maintenance and general upkeep required. We loaned it to my sister in- law (a Chevy fan)for 6 months, and now she is a convert. Friends unfamiliar with the vehicle also enjoyed the comfortable ride, leg space and features.

Best Features

Gear shifter location, split 2nd row seating and 3rd seat. both fold down maximizing cargo space.

Worst Features

The dash could use improvement, bringing gauge panel forward and using a lighter (tan) background. If not, Change LED readouts on mileage readouts and radio from light blue to bold white.
