Great family car

The Freestyle has served my family well. Got it new. Great for infant car seats and fit our 3 kids with room and comfort.


Ford Freestyle is the best car we've owned!!

We have driven and enjoyed our Freestyle more than any other vehicle. It has plenty of room. Although the CVT transmission has reportedly been problematic, we have not had any breakdowns. It allows for much better gas mileage!! (25-30 mpg!!)


Very reliable vehicle that rides like a car

We've owned it for 12 years and love it for long family trips. We have the first year, so we had to add the ability to connect AUX audio in and a few extra power ports but that made it terrific. Good gas mileage and terrific handling with AWD. I can't understand why Ford discontinued it!


Lots of room

Great MPG for an AWD. Great handling in bad road conditions especially snow and ice. Powerful towing


nice to ride in !

nice ridding in snow best snow tracking all well drive made1 volvo engineereed sycrniesed allwheel drive


Best Transmission I've ever had.

This car carries 6 passengers easily, with plenty of cargo space in the back. It drives awesome and the family loves it!


Family car

This vehicle is big, and I got 19 mpg combined. I already put on over 20000miles. AWD is okay for the snow but can't do serious offroad.


New to Us

Perfect suv/crossover to travel in. large and comfortable. 3 rows of seating with heat and air conditioning settings for each row . Even Audio settings. Comes with a second row dvd/cd, game entertainment center that I'm pretty sure our doggie won't need.


Great handling family vehicle.

This car met all my needs. Plenty of leg room for two adults and five children (ages six thur nineteen) comfortably for a twelve hour road trip.



Transmission failed at just over 90,000 miles. Ford no longer mass produces these parts so a new transmission is special order. $4300 for the transmission alone and can only be ordered through a Ford dealership. Piece of junk. Only had the car 9 months.
