No More Ford's For Me
By Shirley Howard on


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


I bought my Freestyle when they first hit the showroom, I had been watching them when they first started showing them on their website. I really did like this SUV, It just rolled over to 100,000 miles a week ago. I was planning on driving this for a long time. Then the transmission started messing up and would not change out of low, the tech was going crazy. The dealership informed us it needed a new transmission at the tune of $5910 out the door. That's about what the thing is worth. I have bought my last Ford and I've had several. I would not advise anyone to buy a Ford because they are nothing but junk and they won't stand behind them. Now I know why they only made them for 3 years.

Best Features

Look, handling, comfort, plenty of room

Worst Features

Should have put a transmission in them that would have lasted.
