"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."
