cheryl 5pts I have a 2004 Freestar and the transmission went out while i was drivng 70 miles an hour on the high way. I was abe to coast and get to a safe place and call the wrecker. That was at around 120k miles. I now have 179K on it. I got the transmission replaced and that is the only problem I have had. This is my 5th mini van and I had to put transmissions in 3 of those, only one was a ford. I love my freestar! It has been one of the best vehicles I have ever owned.
