Roomy

Cool factor of -1

Serves Its Purpose — The ONLY way to own a minivan is with a 4.2L V6. Decent performance, relatively good handling. Mileage could be better. Handles slick roads very well. Not the "coolest" ride but works great for transporting the kids and their friends or even hauling cargo with the seats folded down.

Solid Minivan! — I bought this minivan for a good price with low kms on it and did I get a bargain. This van has great performance, handles like a car and has lots of room for all of our stuff. The stowaway third seat is very handy. The only downside is that the 4.2L six is a little thirsty if your have a heavy foot like I do.

Needs more seats and to be more economic.

Our Family Freestar — I love the amenities it has and the way it drives and how comfortable it is. I also love that one seat is a stow and go seat. I hate that it only seats 8, that it is such a gas hog. I also wish it had more stow and go seats.

Essence Of Family — A very driver friendly auto with just enough creature comforts to make any trip pleasant. The instrument cluster is easy to read the power features are essential(especially pedals) and seating with reclining bench and fold away third seat is delightful. Overall, it is a pleasure driving this vehicle locally and long distance.

Best Mini Van Ford Made — It's a shame they no longer make this van. This was an incredibly reliable van, well built, awesome power/handling. We hauled 7 people + luggage in this van and it was a comfortable trip. I honestly don't think Toyota even comes close to the performance of this van.

Overall Nice But Needed Improvements — while fuel economy is all that counts today, this van looks after safety and comfort, although the van has issues it is an all and all good buy. but get a carfax before buying...ford need to return in the minivan race... i hate dodge caravans and the rice vans are WAY TOO EXPENSIVE!!!
