Pros

Comfortable (driver/passenger), reliable, tight controls and good handling for a minivan, easy to maintain, pretty good mileage for a minivan

Cons

Rear seats are low--a little uncomfortable for teens/adults, road noise gets a little loud at high speeds, no aux input on the stereo

Solid, Reliable, Non-nonsense Minivan — The steering, braking, and 4.2L engine work to give to give this van a solid feel and good handling. The front seats are firm, but comfortable, even for long trips...rear seats however are a little low and leave taller people feeling a little close to their knees. The fold-flat rear seat is great when you need cargo space, and when it's up, you have a nice, deep, trunk area to keep your groceries from sliding all over. The interior looks nice, but is pretty "no frills". You won't find a lot of bells and whistles, but all the basics are covered...power windows, locks, mirrors, CD, steering wheel controls for cruise and stereo. We were a little disappointed to not have an aux input to listen to our iPod on long trips, otherwise the stereo is good. Speaking of long trips, it is a little noisy at highway speeds (not enough to interfere with conversations, but noticeable), but the gas mileage is good (27mpg on one trip we took!). Easy to drive, easy to maintain, good solid minivan.

A Compromise — I bought this vehicle replacing a full size van. I thought a mini-van would get better milage without compromising the convenience of a full size van. Towing--rated at 3500#, it does OK. Fuel Economy-I'm observing 20mph on freeway at 60-65mph--it should be doing better. Around town? Fuel Economy is 14-15--my full size van did this well. In the end, the mini-van was just too much of a compromise, it isn't a truck frame/suspension, etc...

Ford Freestar — It's a van - what more can you say - it starts - it runs, the windows go up and down and as all minivans are - it's a chick magnet. everyone should one 3 or four. it sucks in the snow, the astro was way better in the snow and it was rear wheel drive.

Runs good, Low repair bills

Cons

well, its a mini van

Ford Freestar — Well, its a Freestar - minivan. There is lots of room, the seats are a breeze to work. I have almost 150k on it now and have spent less than a thousand on it in repair - besides usual maintance, tires, brakes, oil etc the only thing really broke was a/c and that could have been a result of the deer hit. It gets great mileage, still gettin 26 on the hwy. Does great on gavel and snow.

Like The Style And That The Seats Fold Out Of The Way — We have enjoyed travelling in this minivan, buat it does have a lot of wind noise. Also, it seems to be common that the BACK brakes wear out within 20,000 miles -- be sure to check before warranty runs out. Also, we had to replace tires at 25,000 miles.
