193000 miles and still going

Replaced the throttle body early on and recently the water pump. No problems, goes great in the snow. They should still make them. Had 30,000 when I bought it. Now has 193,000.


Reliable vehicle with lots of space and durability

Very durable vehicle, Ford one of best vehicles ever build especially for family's. 3rd row seat makes huge difference. The suspension and the engine is great onthese cars.


Best used car yet!

This car was perfect for what I bought it for. I bought it so I could drive from town to town for school, to and from work and to the store in town To buy a doughnut!


Nice Family Car

This car has all the space we need for our family and our active lifestyle. It will be a great car for traveling and is much easier on gas than I thought it would be for so much space.


Major design flaw in the CVT type transmission

Everything about this vehicle is great. except this: when the transmission fails and it will, it is a $6000 repair. The CVT transmissions are unreliable and Ford has no fix for it. S buyer beware. if you are a "drive for a few years and get another" kind of car owner, then this car is perfect for you. If you are in for the long haul, look elsewhere.


A great ride!

Really smooth drive, and great safety features! Very comfortable and dependable! Great value for my money. Will recommend this vehicle to others as I can!


Loving the 3rd row seating option..

Love the 3rd row. Is got lots of room for the car rides with kids and for the driver and passanger as well. Rides really smooth unless your cruising through pot holes.


Served me well!

Haven't had any issues with the 2005 Freestyle. The size came in handy on numerous occasions. If I had to list a flaw it would be the fuel consumption - it averages 17m/g.


Ford freestyle

Love that the middle seats fold and pull up. Makes it easier to get in the third row of the vehicle. Great family car. Was purchased new from my parents.


Family vehicle 3rd row seating
