"I'm a big Ford fan but have never owned a car in my life, always have been Ford Trucks or SUV's. I bought this car for gas mileage. I must say, I love this car. It's got AWD which is perfect for the snow and drives like a gem. I love the heated leather seats and interior. My kids love the DVD system (which I do as well, keeps them quiet on long rides). I bought it used with under 90,000 miles and have had only one issue with it. But it was a wear out issue, nothing major (Brakes). I've got the Limited Addition and have absolutely no complaints. I was trying to decide between this vehicle and the Ford Escape. And as I said before I'm a Ford fan but I just didn't like the drive of the Escape or the interior and I couldn't afford an Edge (which was my first choice). I initially didn't even want the Freestyle because it was a car but after driving it and putting on almost 40,000 miles I'm VERY happy I bought this car!"

Pros: "extremely dependable, handles well, excellent ride"

Cons: "Interior materials are the worst!"

"This has been an excellent car - 175,000 miles, never had a single problem. Most dependable car I have ever had, including imports. The only strike has always been the poor quality of the upholstery and carpets. If a drop of water touches the seat, it leaves a horrendous stain. Let a water bottle sweat on the seat - huge stain. For an expensive well-made car, Ford really put a poor interior in it. That has been my only complaint."

"We bought this vehicle in 2008 when our 4 door no longer held all of our grandchildren. Now, this great 7 passenger does not hold all of our grandchildren (7!) and counting. We added remote start as soon as we brought it home due to cold weather in the mid west."

"After 50k miles this vehicle drives like a truck. Even with regular scheduled maintenance it required extra replacing and fixing of some sort. When the transmission went out, it was a great chore to find a mechanic trained to replace it. I have nothing good to say because now the engine is kaput. We decided to stick to Honda's and Toyota's for future reliability."
