"This car was the perfect transition from a mini van. It has handled so nicely over the last 8 years. I always felt safe. My kids were comfortable and loved the DVD player on long trips. I could fill up the back for birthday parties, grocery shopping or flowers for the yard. Ford should offer a super safe updated heavy version like this today."

Good car, but I'll pass on the CVT

"If you buy one of these with the CVT, makesure you have the warranty! Our's failed around 75k, if we didn't have the warranty, it would have cost us over 7k for replairs/replacemnt... Also in general I've found the Nav systems are over rated, for what you pay for the update DVD, you could buy a top of the line GPS and have enough left over for a night on the town. All other things considered it is a good solid vehicle, especially if you have kids and need it for hauling them and friends around."

"My freestyle is great in the snow with the AWD, has room for 7 and when the back seat is down there is a lot of cargo room. The drawbacks are that with the AWD, the milage isn't great (23 highway and 16 city), and the 3rd seat is short on leg room."
