    Beware! Very Bad Transmission, Very Expensive Fix/replace, Replace Again — Even though the gas milage wasn't great, I loved this car until the AWD went out under 3 years and then the transmission in it's third year. Ford no longer makes this car and now I know why, I wish I had done more research before I bought this car. I learned that transmission is guaranteed to go out in a few short years. I don't understand why Ford will not recall it.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: nice looking, nice driving (first couple of years), nice size for large family

    Cons: bad transmission, bad awd system

    Would Buy Another One — this SUV is a mid size and the 7 pasanber seating comes in handy. The fold flat seats(including the front passanger) helps with large loads or hauling lumber for thoes projects that you want to build, but never have time for. The only thing I don't like is that it sits a little lower than most SUV's, so you have to be careful when you go off road.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: smooth ride, good on gas,AWD

    Cons: leather is very sticky in summer

    Pros: It handles and rides fantastic

    Awesome 2006 Ford Freestyle — Never thought I would OWN a Ford - but now I think I might want another one!!! I LOVE this Vehicle!!! It sits up higher than a car, drives like a car, and has enough room for a small army OR bunk beds! I pursued this vehicle off of a recommendation and would certainly recommend it to ANYONE!!!

    Pros: EVERYTHING

    Cons: NOTHING

    Don't Love It, But Am Satisfied Overall. — Reliability has been very good, as has gas mileage for its size. 24 mpg highway requires no particular care. Only problems in 85K miles have been rear brakes and need to reflash for airbag light. Styling very plain. Carpets wearing very poorly. Acceleration good for our normal 3 passengers, even in hilly areas, but slow with 5 or more passengers. ---------------------- Update: Reliability holding up well at over 125K miles. Front struts replaced, needs new rear struts. Hope this will improve wallowy ride. Has had some other suspension noises, with a couple of suspension bushings replaced. Ability to get CVT transmission fixed/replaced if it fails a concern, but no problems so far. _____________ Update: Still driving at 163K miles, reasonably reliable except for air conditioning, gas mileage as good as new. Understand that transmission would be far too expensive to fix/replace if it fails.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Mileage, space, reliability.

    Cons: Quality of carpets, balky folding of second row seat.

    Excellent Family Vehicle/highway Cruiser By riverdog29
