Purchased As Used
We bought this van due to needing a van and it was the best deal. We have owned now for 1 yr. And it has had a new torc convertor put in, $1200 for that. That went out without any warning in the middle of nowwere. We were driving down the road on a hot day and started to see smoke coming out of the engine. The antifreeze was leaking out. So need a new compressor. Now that it is winter cant turn the heat to a cooler temp or the van overheats. The compressor will cost around $500. Does get good gas mileage. And is good for long trip but don't have alot of people in it. So in the long run I would have been better paying more for a better van....read morehide

- Good comercials on tv
- I am a father of five and saved for a van. I have had nothing but trouble with ford
Ford has been nothing but trouble to deal with and I would not take a free car due to the fact that the repairs will cost more than any other vehicle.

- The fuel economy is excellent, as I get 20 mpg in town, consistently. 25 on freeway, if careful
The biggest con-comment I have about this car, is that it's under appreciated by others. It's a dependable and for me, valuable product. I'm hauling kids around all day, 6 or 7 days a week. So I'm in it all the time. I'm pleased. But disapointed that it's DC'd for '08. That will depreciate the value of my car....read morehide

- good for 30,000 mi
- has transmission problems at only 32000 miles
I got this van mostely bacause I found it with a good price tag on it. I don't think that I would get this van again though. The seats are not the most conferatable, it definitly isn't the minivan with the most leg room and it keeps having little mechanical problems. The DVD player has never worked quite right, even when there is no DVD in the thing it never shuts off, you can always here the thing spinning. This van also doesn't have good gas milage for a minivan, and now after only 32,000 miles I am having problems with the transmission. I am going to have it looked at, but I am afraid that this van is already on its way out. somebody who knows more about cars than me told me that the Ford minivan is not rated very good on its tranmission at all.
Now I am not dicouraging you from getting a ford vehical, because all of their other cars are rated great. I have had other fords in the past; in fact I still have a 1998 for contour with 100,000mi and the thing runs like new. My brother has a 1999 ford taurus and the thing is still running good with something like 185,000 mi. Their Minivan though is not rated all that well and I would probably not recommend buying it....read morehide

- I got a good deal on it. Bought it at 12k miles. Certified Pre-Owned till 06/2012 or 100,000 miles
- Had a 2000 Windstar and family says the seats in the Freestar are far less comfortable in many ways.
This is my third Ford minivan a 1996 Windstar and a 2000 Windstar and Now a 2007 Freestar. From the start of the Freestar I have not liked the boxy interior compared to the rounded formed and molded Windstars. The front seat belts look like they were afterthoughts. As I have already said the seats are less comfortable. The Windstar allowed for me to move the middle seat from side to side, Our new Freestar puts the middle seat sorta in the middle what that does is makes it so the 3rd row is not easily accesible from either side. The back seats sit lower to the floor. Not the end of the world for small children but for my pre-teen daughter and any adult it makes it extremely uncomfortable. Because the back seat can not slide and because of the centered position of the middle seat the middle row needs to be knee jamming close to the front seat. The ride of a new 2007 seemed rougher than the ride of our 2000 but that also may have been because the harder seats. I don't know if there is a more comfortable seating package but if there is you should certainly go with it. The reason I bought this vehicle is because of the price value and the Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle coverage of 6 years 100,000 miles. Please don't think I am complaining I am sastified with the value of my purchase just letting you know about things you might want to consider. I ultimately believe that my God the Lord Jesus Christ provided my family with the right vehicle for the right price at the right time. I did a lot of research before buying this and believe it was the best value within a 300 mile radius in the Pacific NW. I have only owned this vehicle for 2 days but so far am happy with it....read morehide

- Performance and comfort
- fuel economy
Love everything about my 2007 FreeStar except putting gas into it. If you're into miniVans this is definately one you should test drive. I consider myself moving up from a pretty basic 2001 Caravan which was OK except it was gutless and was starting to have problems,

- Reliable and good gas mileage
- That they are going to stop making them
This is the fourth Windstar/Freestar I have owned they are extremely reliable they get good gas mileage 24.3 overall They run great in snow and they are the kind of Vehicle you just keep running. My last one I ran 300 Thousand Mileage my current one is 16 months old and it has 120 Thousand already it cruises on the highway like a luxury car and is so convenient having all the space it has for hauling whatever. The engine is the perfect size it pulls hills well and it hauls weight well while getting respectable gas mileage and if you are running the air conditioner it is not affecting engine while you are going up steep hills while keeping the car cool front and back I always thought this was the best minivan out there and would buy another in a heartbeat...read morehide

- its a minivan
Had this thing loaded up with extra on top, friend and family had thier Honda loaded too on same trip and I have to be honest the Honda had some trouble going up some steep hills, its was actaully quite funny considering how much more he bragged and paid for his.

- Lots of storage compartments, rear AC with controls
- engine would make static-like noises at merging speeds
I rented one of these for a weekend vacation with the wife and three kids. It was quite handy, although I don't think I could see myself as a regular minivan driver.
The van had lots of room and many storage compartments. The air conditioner worked great against 90 degrees and humidity. A nice touch was the rear vents and controls. I was able to control the rear vents from the front as well.
The six year old puked four hours from home, and it later cleaned up quite nice....read morehide
