Best Vehicle I've Ever Gotten my Hand On


Nothing has gone wrong.

General Comments:

This has got to be the roomiest car I've ever had the pleasure of driving. Beats my earlier Hyundai Santa Fe easily.

Fuel consumption is also far better, even though the Santa Fe both weighs less and is not as quick. The handling is superior and the CVT transmission is a dream!

The Freestyle is a big car, seats seven people (all of the comfortably) and can be difficult in tight situations downtown.

Whether this car is a station car or an SUV doesn't really hold any relevance. If you have a big family, lots of stuff or need a smooth car for long rides (even through snow or mud), I recommend this superior vehicle.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
