"We have driven this car on so many trips and never had an issue. At 114000 we just had to replace the original battery! Love the quad bucket seating and the style and design. This has truly been the best family vehicle we have purchased (owned 2 dodge grand caravans prior to). If Ford still made them, we would probably purchase another one. No complaints at all. We still get great gas mileage and travels well. Best bang for our buck!"
"I have owned this car for 8yrs now and It has never been in the shop. I have made a few small repairs myself, but never nothing major. It will haul anything with all the seats down. Not the best on gas, but did I mention it is reliable and easy to repair if you get on myfordfreestyle.com. I plan on keeping this thing untill it dies. If you buy one make sure the CVT transmission has been properly serviced before you buy it."
"I wasn"t sure if I would like it at first but after driving it found it to be a great car. could take people and everyone had room to move and plenty of storage in back. Only thing I would change is the third seat is a little hard to access. once there very confortable. Not bad on gas milage. with good winter tires it is awesome on traction , better than some trucks in the snow. never left me stranded"
Pros: "Fully Loaded, Good Gas Mileage, DVD Player"

"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!"
"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."
