I am brand new to this list having just purchased a Limited 3 days ago. I guess I would like to see links and recommendationsto accessories for this vehicle, such as trailer hitches, bike racks, luggage racks etc. I know this is a brand new vehicle so this may take some time, but I can't find any accessories anywhere. I would either like to get a roof mount bike rack or a trailer hitch bike rack, but since the vehicle is so new, I can't find anything.

I would also like to hear testemonies from people on what they like and don't like about the Freestar and any problems they may have had that the rest of us should be on the look out for, especially since this is a new vehicle.

thanks. I was very excited when I first found this site, and I am looking forward to participating!

Hi - I would love to see links to other articles that are published about the freebie as they come out, Motor Trend, Car & Driver, etc. Seems like most of the previous "press" was from Ford Mkt.

Also, I understand insurance ratings are out and it rated 5 star - maybe a link to info like that.

Thanks for the site - we have one on order and are waiting, waiting, waiting.

Freestyle review links

Post by rex » Tue Dec 14, 2004 7:26 am

I joined the site mainly to hear the experiences of new owners with the Freestyle. We are looking to buy one, but only after early production problems have been worked out. One we took for a test drive made a very loud squeak with every bump, an obvious defect. I am also very interested in CVT reliability issues. Lack of a proven track record for Ford's CVT makes buying the Freestyle now a risky proposition, I think. We are planning to wait until the 2006 models are available. If no big problems seem obvious with the Freestyle, then we will purchase one.

Below is a partial list of links to sites with reviews of the Freestyle:

Can you filter and eliminate the posts that are obviously sales pitches? Don't need to come here to find out where to buy celebrex. :(

Sorry, from an admin perspective it's just too dangerous.

Good morning,

I would like it if we were able to upload photos without it being on a website first.

Is there any way that could be done?

Hello Webmaster,

I look forward to anything that you can do. I know that we are all very proud owners and I am sure we would all love showing off our cars.
