Bad Brakes

2006 Ford Freestyle SEL 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


It needs its rear brakes changed for the 3rd time and the rotors redone for the 2nd time! It's going to cost another $400. They were just changed 22,000 miles ago. The rear door handles were also recalled because when it gets too cold they would pop open while driving. The O ring in the transmission had to be replaced with less 100 miles on it. When it rains water drips from the passenger visor screw hole and they can't find the source.

Best Features

Captain seats in the 2nd row and the CVT transmission is kind of cool.

Worst Features

My 10 and 11 year old boys are too big for the 3rd row. It's built for preschoolers or younger and their isn't enough cargo space. Ford needs to use better brake pads. I'm starting on set 4 including the set it came with and it only has 70,000 miles on it.
