"Never wanted to own a minivan but my wife convinced me. It has been our traveling vehicle for summer vacations. It is comfortable and the mileage has been decent. It handles quite well for a van and has more than enough power. It has been basically trouble free and the styling still rivals the newer minivans."

"This is my first minivan, and I really like it! Ford makes a quality product! The Freestar has had engine issues. They were recalled that I'm aware of. Mine seems to operate well and no major issues. May need spark plugs replaced soon and fuel filter. I run fuel treatment and injector cleaner in the gas, as well as Murphy's Mystery oil in the oil and gas. Ford could've at least installed a stereo/CD player, instead of a basic stereo radio. But, all and all the van has plenty of room, storage space, and it fits my driving needs! Came with a nice paint job, which was great! I keep it waxed! Keep up the great work Ford Motor Co. :)"

"I like this van because of the dvd player that keeps my kids entertained on long trips. the only thing I dont like is that my van gets worse milage than a standard V-8. I would recemend the van to anyone that needs room for a family of 5. but not when it comes to feul milage."
