2004 Ford Freestar SEL 4.2 from North America
You get what you pay for
Power window motor was dead on delivery.
Rear hatch trim bezel was cracked on delivery.
Cruise control switch failed at 35000 miles.
Rear brake pads and rotors replaced at 42000 miles.
Transmission torque converter failed at 49000 miles.
Front brake rotors warped at 60000 miles.
Rear hatch trim bezel cracked again at 75000 miles.
A rather pedestrian minivan with no real great attributes, other than you can get one fairly cheap. Ours listed for $32K, and we drove it new off the lot for $18K.
Other than the torque converter failing (a week before Christmas @ $2100), I don't have any major complaints from a reliability perspective.
Starting to get quite a few squeaks and rattles.
The rear seat isn't fit for human habitation. Even the kids don't want to sit back there.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
