Great, good looking car!
I have experienced two episodes of leaking from the windshield seal to the right of the rear view mirror. The leak is nothing more than "drips" that occurred when I stopped at the bottom of my sloped driveway. These "drips" occurred after a hard rain. The dealership was unable to duplicate the leak after keeping it for two days. No problems since that time. No leaks with snow and ice.
Could use a little better organization around the air/heater controls.
No other problems.
I find the car roomy and comfortable. It has great cargo space and comfortably holds adults in the 2nd and 3rd row seats. Interior controls related to the sound system are organized well and easily accessible from the dash or steering wheel.
The car handles well in various weather conditions. Feels like you are driving a car as compared to an SUV. I also own an Explorer and there is a vast difference in the ride and handling. The Freestyle is much better. Has good acceleration in City as well as Interstate driving.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
