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


Bought a used 2006 Freestyle with 11k miles. It was a former lease and we had been looking for a wagon instead of mini van or SUV. My wife loves the Freestyle, so we focused on purchasing one. Have had it for 1 week now and it rides wonderfully, it has a great transmission, but the one thing I noticed, and this seems true for all Fords, is that the disc brakes stink. They do not hold up well; when we looked at used Freestyles, every one of them needed brake jobs by 10k miles. Mine was done at 11k before I bought the car. Ford needs to do something about the brakes. I purchased brake dust shields as the pads shed dust terribly, you can get a set for about $75.

Best Features

6 passenger seating, with captain's chairs in the middle - keeps kids from killing each other. Love the ride and how it handles, and pretty good gas mileage for a wagon.

Worst Features

Brakes need to be upgraded most definitely, and the interior material needs to be improved, stains too easily. All in all great vehicle for the price.
