Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
Ford introduced the Freestar in 2004, replacing the company's Windstar minivan. Mercury's Monterey is closely related, and both are manufactured in Canada. Little has changed for the Freestar in 2007. Six new exterior colors are available, and the lineup still includes three models: SE, SEL and Limited. A cargo van version is also available.

Exterior
Distinctive front-end styling themes differentiate Freestar trims. The SE model has a body-colored grille, whereas a chrome grille and 16-inch five-spoke aluminum wheels go on the SEL. Limited models have chrome exterior trim and power sliding doors, as well as heated signal mirrors with puddle lamps and 16-inch chrome wheels.

Large upright headlights and an eggcrate grille integrate with the hood and front fenders. Contoured rear bumpers promise a low liftover height. Sound-insulation treatments include thick front side windows and a noise-absorbing dash panel. Roof rails are standard.

Standard wheels measure 16 inches in diameter, but 17-inch tires on alloy wheels are optional. Measuring 201 inches long overall, the Freestar rides a 120.8-inch wheelbase. Self-sealing tires and a power liftgate are optional.


Interior
Freestars can seat up to seven occupants. Second-row bucket seats in upper-end models include a fold-and-tumble feature. The third-row seat can be positioned to face the rear for tailgate parties. Cargo space behind the third row totals 27.4 cubic feet and expands to 135.7 cubic feet when the t...

Interior
Freestars can seat up to seven occupants. Second-row bucket seats in upper-end models include a fold-and-tumble feature. The third-row seat can be positioned to face the rear for tailgate parties. Cargo space behind the third row totals 27.4 cubic feet and expands to 135.7 cubic feet when the third row is folded into the floor. A covered compartment atop the dashboard holds small items.

Overhead consoles on the SEL and Limited contain readouts for outside temperature, a compass and auxiliary buttons for the power sliding doors, if installed. The Freestar has nine cupholders; the front-door cupholders can hold 20-ounce beverages. Ford's Conversation Mirror lets drivers watch children in the rear.

Standard equipment includes cruise control, a CD player, a tire pressure monitoring system, remote keyless entry, air conditioning, and power locks, mirrors and windows. Power-adjustable pedals, a DVD entertainment system, a six-way power passenger seat and Ford's Reverse Sensing System are optional. The SEL offers a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls.


Under the Hood
A 194-horsepower, 3.9-liter V-6 is standard in the SE model. A 4.2-liter V-6 in the SEL and Limited generates 201 hp and 263 pounds-feet of torque. Both engines team with a four-speed automatic transmission.

Safety
All-disc antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution are standard. On Freestars equipped with Ford's AdvanceTrac electronic stability system, panic brake assist — which applies added pressure in an emergency — is included. A Safety Canopy side curtain airbag system is available. Three-point safety belts are standard in all seating positions.

Driving Impressions
Like its Windstar predecessor, the Freestar seems a little more trucklike than most minivans. When parking, this minivan seems unusually wide.

Performance with the 4.2-liter V-6 is energetic, and the automatic transmission yields prompt, smooth shifts. Moderate engine noise during acceleration is present. The Freestar is fairly easy to drive and maneuvers with acceptable agility. The ride is sufficiently smooth on good surfaces.

The seat bottoms are short but offer good support. Front headroom is abundant, and elbowroom is adequate. Second-row occupants get plenty of space when bucket seats are installed. Squeezing into the third row isn't too difficult.

Great Car

by Msyfoopoo99 from Chicagoland, IL on October 2, 2017

I love this car. Didn't quite fit my image, but it got the job done. Loved that it carried 7 people when I needed to, or carried a car full of camping gear, or hauled slabs of stone for landscape ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
