Wonderful mini van. Kids love it!
Missing the rear wiper nut cover (Replaced promptly by the dealer when I got my first oil change)
Other than that.. NO problems.
So far my family loves our Freestar. It replaced my wife's trusty 1995 Subaru Impreza All Wheel Drive which she misses, but we needed the room.
It has a wonderful ride, quite interior, comfortable seats (Both front and middle. The rear bench is for children, but OK for adults) Purchased with the DVD entertainment package which is wonderfully integrated with the front stereo/CD/Cassette player and 3 zone AC/heating unit.
Mechanical and electrical reliability is excellent so far.. so I guess Ford finally worked out all the bugs from the previous Windstar on this model. Fit and finish surprisingly excellent!
(I own a BMW)
Dealer included a 100 month 100k miles power-train warranty to ease my reservations about this domestic vehicle. I would highly recommend this mini van to anyone looking for a reliable (so far) and comfortable family vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
