At 150,000 miles, I'm paying for the major repairs and electrical problems.

2005 Ford Freestyle SEL

Electrical problems such as, passenger side window motor has broken, the tire inflation warning light will not go out even after new tires were installed and balanced. Misfires has been detected even after engine repair, and tune-up. Inner and outer tie rods had to be replaced. Currently, I am replacing lower control arms on both sides in the front.

Strong and dependable without the high price tag

2005 Ford Freestyle SEL

I love how much space the vehicle has, the sound system rocks, it does feel a little heavy on the turns but runs smooth in the city. Gas mileage isn't the greatest. Reliable and strong engine. Overall I have used this SUV to move 2 times for college and so far it has handled everything I've thrown at it

- James B

Very roomy dependable vehicle would define purchase does again

2005 Ford Freestyle SEL

Very roomy have had very little problems just regular maintenance has over 200k miles and still going strong. My kiddos have plenty of room for long or short trips. Good quality vehicle. Would definitely buy a ford again. Have full intentions of driving till underivable. Great family vehicle

- Crystal H

Dependability, comfort and reliable.

2005 Ford Freestyle SEL

My minivan is the most reliable comfortable and dependable car I have ever owned. It fits my family comfortably. We take several road trips in it and have zero complaints. I have never had any issues or trouble with the van in the years I have had it. Yes its used but I'd never know it.

- Kelly J

Great car for low price!!

2005 Ford Freestyle SEL

The vehicle has been great. Just routine maintenance needed. No major issue with the car so far. It drives awesome and has been a wonderful family car. The parts are easy to find and also replace. Very spacious as well. Third row seats that all lay flat to create lots of cargo room.

- Hilary T

It has small problems, but is in good condition

2005 Ford Freestyle SEL

My car is a family car, is in good condition. I use to go to work everyday. It has problems with the brakes. It has a little problems with the motor, but besides that is in good condition. It has good tires and comfortable seats, it has a lot of space and it has good features

- Charlotte A

Acceleration issue but it has good features.

2005 Ford Freestyle SEL

it has a nice third row that works with a big family. The fact that both the driver and passenger sides have their own power control in the seats is a nice feature but It has a lot of acceleration issues. I believe that all 2005 to 2006 has had an acceleration problem.

- Lorraine M

No mom van here, perfect young parents

2005 Ford Freestyle SEL

You get the features of a van without the frumpy mom van look. 3 row seats fits all the kids with plenty of space for stroller etc. The farthest rear seat folds down for even more stuff!This is our daily driver and we still get a good amount of mileage from a full tank.

- Natalie M

Great car for a large family and fits all of your gear.

2005 Ford Freestyle SEL

It has over 100,000 miles on it so it had needed some work but it has been very reliable overall. I am noticing some noise in the steering column but other than that it is performing very well. It is comfortable to drive and it is big enough for my family of 5.

- Deborah K

Really like the ford freestyle.

2005 Ford Freestyle SEL

The only issue I would like to change about it would like better gas mileage. We bought it used and besides having to replace a few fuses --we have not had any problems from it. Its leather interior is still in great condition, as well as the exterior.
