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


I took delivery of the car on October
15th abd drove it from Seattle to Palm
Springs and back. The ride is very
smooth and the seats are very
comfortable. This is truly a luxury
car like ride . The average mileage I
got was 20.5 miles p/gallon on regular
gas. We were 2 persons with 4
suitcases plus misc. items such as an
icebox ,golf clubs etc. The
accelleration in the mountains was
very good and I left it on cruise at
70 miles when possible. I like the
variable transmission a lot and you do
not notice any hesitation at all, and
it operates in such a smooth way.
Before I bought the car I drove the
Lexus RX 330, Volvo CX 70, Cadillac
SRX and the Ford gave me the best
value for the money.

Best Features

smooth transmission,great luxury car ride,very good visability,comfortable leather seats , great sound system, good gas mileage, good firm brakes, very quiet on inside even at 75 miles an hour. good amount of space left for groceries even when the 3rd seat is in upright position. Good headroom

Worst Features

Ford could have used a bit more of the wood grain in the LTD instead of only on the dash board. No rollup cover for luggage when 3rd seat is down. I had to use blanket to cover luggage . Improve towing capacity from 2000 to 4000 pound and offer tow package .
