Question Ford Freestyle

Hey guys, just lookin for some info on the Freestyle. My grandma test drove an 06 today and really likes it but we want some feedback. The things i wonder about most is the reliability and durability of the CVT, and how easy/hard the whole vehicle is to work on. Looks like stuff is pretty packed in under the hood.

had one for a bit, but never had to do anything to it so i cant help you as far as maintenance goes.

myfordfreestyle.com is a good site to get info on them though

just wanted to add that i owned it for 3yrs and put 30k miles on it and never had any issues with it. ended up trading it on the truck because i just didnt feel comfortable towing with the cvt tranny. i wouldn't hesitate to buy another one.

Thanks guys. Anyone else?

We'd really like to know long term because she tends to keep cars for a long time. She has a 97 sable she bought in 98 and still has it. But like its been said, they haven't really been out long enough to really know.
