Well equipped, but problematic

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


I bought my 06 Freestyle new in Florida. Love driving the car, and hauling 5 kids (in carseats) in it. Only issues with car is the rubber door molding keeps falling off, the rear brakes need replacement again (replaced under warranty at 26000 mi) at 52000 miles (Front pads are original), and vehicle goes into "reduced power mode" anytime it gets a bad sensor reading. This means the RPM's won't go over 2500 and 0-60 times are around 30 sec. Last time it happened, I turned off the car and restarted it to fix. The time before that I had to replace the air filter (no, it was not the orig.) Also, occasionally, the engine will surge in reverse making it difficult to not hit something.

Best Features

Room! CVT, actually holds the whole family, handles well with enough power to get out of its own way.

Worst Features

Build quality. Fix the rear brakes and drivability issues.
