2nd Best Car I`ve Owned — Have always been a Chevy or Pontiac owner, but when I went to look for a replacement for a van, this Ford was what I found. It has the room I need for my family and for the cargo I need to haul once a week.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Have had very few if any problems with this vehicle. Has space for all 5 of my family, which includes 3 teenagers.

Cons: Only fault i have with it is that it collects a lot of snow and mud in the wheel wells.

Reliable Transportation. — It can be hard to park. I don't like the dark interior. But it is very reliable and has been kept in excellent condition. No major repairs during our ownership. I like the Sirius radio and Bluetooth hands free cellphone system.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good value.

Cons: A bit boxy.

Handling Of A Car, Convenience Of An Suv. — This car is great for taking family vacations or toting the young'uns around town for their Saturday soccer game. It has 3rd row seating when needed or extra cargo room for suitcases and such. It's just a great all around SUV for folks that don't like the added complications of an SUV.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Handling, acceleration and comfortable, quiet ride.

Cons: Steering wheel controls for the stereo go out and are expensive to replace.

Great Car Would Sell To Friend Or Fmily If They Had The Money — Would have kept car if we didn't commute so far miss the space and utility. Excellent family vehicle always drove when friends went out for dinner seats 6 adults easily ladies more comfortable in rear seats. Very easy to convert to flat cargo load space plus additional space for long materials by folding passenger seat flat!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great for utility, handles VG for a large SUV great cruiser

Cons: AWD hurts gas mileage

Worst Buy Ever —

I would NEVER buy this vehicle again. After owning it for only 6 mths, I began noticing problems with the shifting. Since buying this car new in february of 09, I have had to replace the breaks at least 4 times, turned roaders 2 times and replaced them 2 times, break fluid has had to be completely refilled 4 times( 3 of them in past 6 mts). I have had it in the shop for burning something (coolant I was told) out the exhaust and was told by the first Ford Garage that it was leaking coolant into the #4 cylinder. This garage was not able to do the work on the car, so I had to take it to a different Ford Garage who then told me that nothing was wrong with the car. It was smoking all the way to the garage, but when we picked it up it had quit. They garage said they did not do anything to it. The car was out of line when I bought it, and was told to drive a while to be sure, if it was still out of line to bring it back and they would fix it. When I did they refused and said i waited too long. I am working on the 3rd set of tires, and will need new ones shortly in the front. The last set was put on just before christmas and it 4.5 mts ago. Ford refused to do anything about the problems.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: NONE

Cons: Too many problems
