and replaced with!!!

2007 Ford Freestyle 3L AWD limited in Silver with black leather, heated seats, sun roof, and a dvd player. its the most loaded vehicle i will ever own. its got more buttons on the steering wheel, then my XLT escape has throughout LoL. only thing i need to do to it, is install a trailer hitch, and tint the front 2 windows. i might have a set of tube side steps for sale soon LoL.

i find out in a few hrs if i get aproved for financing.

Friends who drive the Freestyle love it. I didn't get a chance to look at many last time I was on the hunt for a new vehicle as they have never been Fords biggest seller.
Only complaint I've heard from anyone has been about the CVT transmissions, coupled with the 3.0 V6 critics said this vehicle was sluggish. Keep in mind the curb weight of the Freestyle is 630lbs more than an Escape 4X4.
Good luck with your purchase, hope your experience will be as good as others I have talked to.

Very nice! I got to drive a friends a few months back and I was surprised at how smooth and quiet the ride was compared to my Escape. Good luck with it!

My wife wanted one of these when they were first introduced. I wasn't willing to anti-up the monthly payments for a new one at the time for her to be driving a CUV/wagon around with just her in it. Once we got past that, she liked the idea of the E/M/T thing. :yes:

Freestyle and Taurus X are wonderful machines though. Imo, the power to wieght ratio is all that bad, it just isn't a light wieght.

its needs window tint, and a trailer hitch to be installed in the new year. and most likely wait till it warms up to get the tint put on.

I'm not a fan of the woodgrain either. I prefer silver to fake wood.

Just a thought, but I would try to find a replacement panel (s) and remove that one to save should you decide to sell this car before it is totally worn out. Someone looking at buying your machine later may like and expect the wood grain dash. ;)
