  1. I bought the Ford Freestyle in May 2019. My experience is pathetic this time. From the very first day, there was a problem with the gearbox of the car. Clips of the parcel tray were damaged since I bought the car. Quality of shocker is so bad that within 6 months there was a problem in it. Go to find the actual ford freestyle mileage.
